Amish Country Berry Pie

(sorry mine is a little messy looking)

Update: A different version of this recipe, which I think I like even better!
Beat together one 8 oz. package softened cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until creamy.  Blend in 2 cups thawed whipped topping.  Pour into unbaked 9" grahm cracker crust.  Top with fruit.  Chill 3 hours before serving.

This is a no bake pie, which is perfect for the hot temperatures we're having!  The cream cheese layer really makes this pie!  I got this recipe from my mom; she would make this often in the summertime!  She is the queen of berry pies!

1 baked 9" pie shell (or a store-bought Oreo cookie or graham cracker crust)
3 oz. cream cheese
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
5-6 cups whole berries (blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries)

Beat cream cheese with sugar and spread carefully over bottom of pie shell.  Arrange berries in shell.  Pour the following glaze over berries:
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons white Karo
1 cup water
2 tablespoons jello
3 tablespoons cornstarch

Glaze: Cook all ingredients except Jello, mix over medium heat until thick.  Add Jello mix.  Cool before pouring over berries. 

Top with fresh whip cream or cool whip to taste.
