Fresh blackberries, cream cheese, and a hint of lemon make this no bake blackberry pie a delicious treat.

Blackberries are very abundant her in Upper Michigan this year and I like to use as many of them fresh as possible. It has been years since I have eaten a no bake blackberry pie. I was getting ready to bake a regular blackberry pie, but it was so hot outside I was reluctant to fire up the oven for a long period of time – so I decided to do a little surfing and came across this  Blackberry Cream Cheese Pie recipe. This is not exactly a no bake, but close, the pie crust is prebaked. You can substitute a graham cracker crust if you want to turn this into a 100 percent no bake recipe.

If you have blackberries available give this Fresh Blackberry Cream Cheese Pie recipe a try; it’s delicious!!

Blackberry Ice Cream Recipe picture
We have had a great year for berries here in Upper Michigan. Hot weather for most days and rain about one day a week. Our blueberry, raspberry and blackberry plants producing just an unreal amount of berries. I love homemade ice cream. This Blackberry Ice Cream Recipe was a great way to use some of the fresh berries. A beautiful color with a fresh delicious blackberry flavor. It is a simple recipe. Most of the time is used letting the ice cream mixture cool before putting it in the ice cream machine.
I have a small ice cream machine. My only regret was it was not big enough to double the recipe. Enjoy
