You might want to start with the summer berry cheesecake pie or lemon icebox pie. Make juicy berries the star with the no-bake fresh strawberry pie. Or capture favorite candy and cookie flavors by making the grasshopper pie or Butterfinger pie.

Summer Berry Cheesecake Pie

This refreshing mix of Jell-O, COOL WHIP and cream cheese has all the richness of cheesecake without all the work. Beat room temperature cream cheese with sugar until smooth then stir in COOL WHIP. The next layer is a mix of strawberry-flavored Jell-O with strawberries and blueberries. Chill and you have a sweet summer berry cheesecake pie from Kraft for dessert.

Lemon Icebox Pie

Here’s another fast recipe using cream cheese as the base. Whip together cream cheese, fresh lemon juice, and one can of sweetened condensed milk before pouring it into a prepared graham cracker crust. That’s all you need to create this lemon icebox pie from AllRecipes.

No-Bake Fresh Strawberry Pie

You can make your own buttery crust with this recipe for no-bake fresh strawberry pie from King Arthur Flour or you can use a prepared one. The next step is filling the crust with chopped strawberries flavored simply with sugar, lemon juice and a little cornstarch for thickening.

Grasshopper Pie

Melted marshmallows mixed with milk and mint flavoring create the creamy filling for this grasshopper pie from Simply Recipes. Add a few drops of food coloring to give the pie a slightly green hue. Garnish with fresh whipped cream and mint leaves.

Butterfinger Pie

Candy, meet pie. That’s the idea behind this Butterfinger pie recipe from The Farm Girl. Crushed Butterfinger candies get soaked in cream cheese and sweetened, condensed milk that’s flavored with peanut butter.
