Fruit Pie with Cream Cheese Filling

Another fruit pie but this time I used cream cheese for filling as requested. This time I want to share the recipe so that you might can try and give me your opinion about it.

For the crust, so far I would say this is the best sweet crust I have ever made!

Pie crust :

300 gr + 2 tbs all purpose flour

175 gr butter or butter + margarine/shortening 50:50 (chilled it before using)

1 egg, lightly beaten

30 gr granulated sugar

1/4 tsp salt

Directions :

1. Mix in large bowl flour, sugar and salt using whisk or finger

2. Cut in butter using fork, pastry cutter or knive, add in egg mix until dough holds together.

3. Wrap the pie crust in plastic wrap then place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes - 1 hour

4. Roll the ball of pie crust out until it is 3 or 4mm thick and you have about 24 - 25cm in diameter.

5. Put the circle in a 22-23cm (9 inch) pie plate, trimming any extra dough from the edges with a sharp knife. Return it to the refrigerator for at least 20 mins to chill the butter and rest the gluten.

6. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Line unbaked crust with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Fill tart pan with pie weights, rice or beans, making sure the weights are to the top of the pan and evenly distributed over the entire surface. Bake crust for 20 to 25 minutes until crust is dry and lightly golden brown. Remove weights and cool crust on wire rack before filling.

Cream Cheese Filling:

330 gr cream cheese

180 gr butter

180 gr castor sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix all together until soft and creamy

To assemble pie :

Spread a melted chocolate over the bottom and sides of crust to prevent the crust from getting soggy. Let the chocolate dry between 20 - 30 minutes. Spread the cream cheese filling and decorate the pie with any kind of fruits you desire and coat the fruit using glaze to make the fruits look shiny.
