Ingredients: 

  • 3 Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box (from 2 boxes)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 containers (6 oz each) Yoplait® Original lemon burst yogurt
  • Juice and grated peel of 1 lemon (3 tablespoons juice and 1 teaspoon peel)
  • 6 cups assorted berries (sliced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries)
  • 1 cup strawberry glaze (from 13.5-oz container)

 

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 450°F. Remove 2 of the pie crusts from pouches. Unroll and stack on lightly floured surface. Roll to 17×12-inch rectangle. Fit crust into ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan, pressing into corners. Fold crust even with edges of pan. Prick crust several times with fork.
  2. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, remove another pie crust from pouch. On lightly floured surface, unroll crust. Roll to 12-inch circle. Cut stars using 1-, 1 1/2- and 2-inch cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart on large ungreased cookie sheet. Brush with water; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the sugar.
  4. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet. Remove to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat remaining 3 tablespoons sugar, the cream cheese, yogurt, lemon juice and lemon peel with electric mixer on high speed until smooth and creamy. Spread evenly into crust-lined pan. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until chilled.
  6. In large bowl, mix berries and glaze until well blended. Spoon berry mixture evenly on top of cream cheese-topped pie crust. Place pie crust stars on top of berry mixture.

Expert Tips

  • Strawberry glaze can be found in the produce section of your grocery store.
  • Take care in folding the berries and glaze. If using raspberries or blackberries, gently fold them in at the very end to avoid berries breaking apart.
