These Blackberry Cream Cheese Pie Dippers are a flaky pie crust filled with creamy blackberry cream cheese spread and baked until golden and crispy!
Are you all pie fans? I mean who doesn’t love a good old pie? Honestly, I’ve never been the biggest pie fan out there. Weird I know, no judging. Like I said before, I’m more of a cake girl, but give me some of these delicious Pie Dippers and I’m SOLD! They are a mix of the traditional pie and hand pies if I had to compare them to anything!
These little hand-held treats are so fun and simple to make that they look more elegant than they really are. It takes pie eating to a whole new level. Dip these bad boys in some creamy glaze dipping sauce and you are ready to go. Oh and these are a little less mess for the little ones and easier to eat as well.
