Kiwi n Cream Pie

    I have a sad story to tell you.  I am sitting next to an empty pie plate trying to decide what to tell you about this pie.  So far I have "it was good" and "I wish there was more."  But, alas there is no more.  Darn!


     It all started because I had some kiwi that I wanted to use.  I searched for ideas online, but I didn't want to make a smoothie or sorbet.  There were some tasty looking salsas, but that wasn't what I had in mind either.  So, I set off to make something on my own.


    What I ended up with was so tasty!  The kiwi added a light tart tropical flavor swirled into a cheesecake type base.  This would be really good in a graham cracker crust too, but I didn't have any graham crackers on hand today.  So, pie crust it was!


    After just eating a half of a homemade pizza, Matt still got a second piece, which almost never happens with dessert.  He had to share one with Sam when he came by too.  He made the comment that I could make it again whenever I would like.  It always cracks me up when he says stuff like that.  But I took it as a compliment.  He had just gotten done telling me about how he really isn't into pies, other than his mom's apple pie, so I was happy to have one he would request again.

  I don't know why, but I just love that you can see the speckle of the seeds in the kiwi filling.  So fun!

    1. I never had either, but I couldn't see a reason why it wouldn't work. I'm glad I tried it! See you Tuesday!
