Fruit Pie with a Pecan Crust

Yesterday our sweet friends John and Samantha invited us over for a BBQ, so I wanted to bring a dessert that fit the occasion. I didn't want to do anything too heavy or chocolaty, so my mom suggested this delicious dish. It was perfect for an outdoor get-together, and yall, this pie was delicious. Oh, I almost forgot, it's also the easiest thing to make.

Ingredients:

1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup cool whip
8 oz cream cheese, softened
fruit of your choice- I used blueberries and strawberries
cool whip to dollop on each slice, optional

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.  Stir pecans, melted butter, and flour in a mixing bowl until dough forms. Press mixture into pie plate with your fingers, and bake about 25 minutes. Cool completely.


3. With an electric mixer, cream powdered sugar, cool whip, and cream cheese until incorporated. Spread mixture into cooled, baked crust.
4. Top with fruit. If not serving immediately, place finished pie in refrigerator until serving time. Enjoy!
