Kiwi and Cream Pie

A kiwi filling is swirled in a cream cheese base for a one of a kind pie experience.  If you've never had kiwi and cream pie, you don't know what you're missing.

    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!

Kiwi and Cream Pie

A kiwi filling is swirled in a cream cheese base for a one of a kind pie experience. If you've never had kiwi and cream pie, you don't know what you're missing.
prep time: 25 MINScook time: 1 hour and 7 MINStotal time: 1 hours and 32 mins


  • 1 pie crust
  • 5 kiwi
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch 
  • 12 ox Neufatchel cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional: Green food coloring 


1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Place pie crust in pie pan. Prick the bottom with a fork,
then cover with parchment and pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 12 minutes,
then remove weights and bake for 5 more and set aside. Reduce heat to 350 F.

2. Peel and puree the kiwi. Mix kiwi and a half cup of sugar in a small saucepan.
Over medium-low heat, bring to a low boil. Simmer for about ten minutes or until
it starts to thicken. Add a slurry of the corn starch and a teaspoon of water. Allow
to simmer for a minute or two longer. Set aside and allow to cool.

3. In a mixer, whip cream cheese until smooth. Add the other half cup of sugar, egg,
vanilla and salt. Mix completely.

4. Pour cream cheese mixture into par-baked pie shell. Spread kiwi mixture over the
top. Using a knife, gently swirl the kiwi mixture into the cream cheese mixture.
Bake at 350 F for 45-50 minutes or until barely set.

5. Cool for an hour, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
