"Berries in a light custard sauce. Unbelievably easy to make, with an incredibly decadent taste. Despite that, this recipe is ultra low fat. Can also be made with peaches, or a combination of peaches and raspberries."

I liked this better than my boys & hubby. I am a lover of creamy-type desserts. My husband is more of a purist and I think the custard detracted from his berries! Because I bake for them mostly, I probably won't keep this recipe.

i started making this pie and quickly realized that someone had put onion soup mix in our sour cream, so i substituted strawberry yogurt. since it turned out great, next time (will definately make it again) i'll probably use yogurt even if we do have sour cream. we topped the pie with whipped cream. the only problem with the recipe was the dough was very sticky and it took a long time to get spread over the pan because it stuck to my fingers even with flour. it was worth the effort because it was absolutely delicious. thanks for a great recipe!

I thought this was a great sweet snack. I love that it is low fat. I used peaches and raspberries and I used frozen fruit. It tasted a lot like a cobbler with out all the fattening ingredients.

Wow! I loved this pie. My husband who doesnt really like custard also enjoyed this pie. I cannot tell this is low fat at all. The crust is not my favorite but still a winner!

Very simple recipe that my 11 year old made. He used a graham cracker crust and that may have been some of the difference as there seemed to be something missing flavor-wise. The custard was nice but next time we may try a traditional egg custard and see what happens. Will make it again just because our family loves berries and we need new ways to use them.

Like Nalova, I found the dough mix to be quite sticky. You may want to keep the cooking spray handy so you can apply to your hands as needed for easier spreading. Or maybe add a little more baking mix to the dough mixture. It was well worth the effort -- it's a hit!

This was really lovely. I used a graham cracker crust because it was easier for my toddler to help make. I also used frozen berries. The custard browned beautifully. I did add some corn starch to the berries and they set up perfectly. A few berries bubbled through to the top of the custard, giving it a lovely colorful top.
