Pillsbury Pie Crust
Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Pie Crust, baked in a 9-inch pie pan and cooled
packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
cups sugar, divided
tablespoons orange or almond liqueur
cups whole fresh cranberries or 1 can (15 oz) whole berry cranberry sauce
teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Begin by gathering your ingredients.
Drape a Pillsbury™ dough round into a 9 inch pie pan. Gently pinch the edges together decorative-style, and place some pie pearls on the bottom of the pan. Don’t have pie pearls? No problem! Toss about 1 1/2 cups of dry pinto beans into the bottom of your pie crust before baking.
In a stand mixer or large bowl beat cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Add sour cream and 3/4-cup sugar. Beat until smooth and well combined. Spoon into prepared pie crust. Refrigerate until topping is prepared.
In a saucepan over medium high heat, stir together remaining 1/2-cup of sugar, orange liqueur, fresh cranberries and pumpkin pie spice. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly allow to boil for 1-2 minutes. Remove and cool completely. Once cool, spread on top of pie.
Cover pie and refrigerate an additional 1-2 hours, or until topping is set and filling is firm.
