Mixed Fruit Cheese Pie

by Joanne on September 14, 2009

What a busy day.  How about you guys?  It was crazy GOOD at work today.  The hours fly by when your so busy.

I just have to share the following recipe with you.  Crazy Delicious to go with my Crazy day! 

When I got the monthly fruit delivery from Harry and David, I glanced at the little leaflet that accompanies the fruit.  A recipe jumped out at me and grabbed at my wheels of creativity.  Of course I couldn’t just follow their delicious looking suggestion.  I took one peach, one nectarine, looked at the over ripe bananas on the counter and wondered.  This is what came from those moments of deep thought.

  • 1 nectarine – peeled and sliced
  • 1 overripe banana – sliced

Beat the cheese with the peel, juice, ginger, egg, and ¼ cup of the powdered sugar.  Carefully pour then spread over the half and half mixture and fruit already in the pie shell.

      I love the mixed fruit. Fruit is great but I don’t like a lot of it in its natural state. Love apple pie, apple cake, apple crumble but not apples. This would be a dream for me to have a bunch of fruits all hiding for me to enjoy.
