Easy pie for pi day
Here is an easy pie to make in honor of super-pi day (3.14.15). It’s based on a minute cheesecake recipe for the microwave. It’s surprisingly good, but after you cook it for a minute or two, it needs to chill for about an hour. The recipe was originally Atkins/paleo friendly. Mine is not, but could be adapted easily.
Of course, I made some changes to the flavors, too:
2 minute blueberry key lime pie
This has a great flavor, and almost the same texture as authentic key lime pie. It could easily serve 2. I added some whipped cream.
- 2 oz cream cheese, softened
- 2 oz. vanilla greek yogurt
- 1/2 T lime juice
- 1 egg
- 1/4 c blueberries
Whisk together first four ingredients in a mug or microwave safe bowl.
Cook 4 times for 30 seconds each time, and mix between each.
Before the last cooking time, mix in blueberries.
Chill about 1 hour and enjoy.
5 minute strawberry cheesecake pie
The taste is similar to New York style cheesecake, but the texture is a bit creamier. You might like it a bit sweeter, so add more sugar or the sweetener of your choice.
- 6 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 6 oz greek yogurt
- 1/3 c sugar
- zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
- 3 eggs
Whisk together all ingredients.
Microwave on high 4 times, 1 minute each time, mixing between each time.
Mix again after cooking, and pour into graham cracker crust, or leave in cooking bowl.
Chill for at least one hour. Top with sliced strawberries before serving.
