This recipe came From Ida on my Facebook page when I asked for pie suggestions. I am lucky enough to have two!!! dinners this weekend where I am not cooking and needed to bake two pies to take along. One person hinted that he loved baked cream cheese for dessert so when I saw this recipe, I knew it was the one!
So thanks again Ida!!
I will update it with slice pictures as we eat, I didn’t really want to pre-slice the pie before we took it over for dinner, though knowing me, they’d understand why they had a mangled pie!
