Well, I have no idea what this pie is called. I know cream cheese is a cheese and not a cream, but I tried. My mother has made this as a dessert for many of our family gatherings. She altered the recipe based on one from her Aunt Alice. On to the pie! Luckily for me, aside from the store-bought crust, it’s already low-carb! To make the crust, I’ll be using the same one from my Key Lime Pie recipe. I am using lemon and raspberry for flavoring, but any fresh fruit should work. You can substitute the monk fruit sweetener for one of your choice, but be sure to reference a conversion chart. If you decide to experiment and change up the recipe, let me know what you tried, and how it turned out!
