We all have one or two in our back pocket: those recipes that we know will wow the crowd as long as you don’t let them know how little cost and effort you put in to making it. This is my go-to-kitchen-cheat. You need five minutes to prep, one or two items from the grocery store (most pantries are stocked with these basic ingredients) and that’s it. Easy as pie…literally.

The name of this pie raises questions I am sure. Sour cream pie? Is that something a five-year-old came up with when mom was away and they were  given free reign of the kitchen. The answer is no! This pie is  the result of some cooking genius. It is so light, cooling, and divine. A perfect, easy, summer treat.The sour cream puffs up until it is like a super light version of cheesecake. The fruit becomes soft and sweet. Just try it. You’ll soon understand
