Luckily for all of us, this ridiculously easy sorbet pie is so simple to make that it can hardly even be called a recipe. But that’s what we are all about here at Living Well Spending Less–delicious easy recipes that make your life easier!

Step 1: Brush bottom and sides of crust with egg yolk. Place on baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 5 minutes. Allow pie crust to cool on baking rack.

Step 2: Allow sorbet to thaw a bit and then scoop into pie crust. Then top with second flavor of sorbet.

Step 3: Smooth sorbet with spoon; cover and place in freezer for at least 2 hours.

Step 4: Top pie with whipped topping and place back in freezer for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 5: Slice and serve.

2: Easy Homemade Blueberry Pie

The great thing about homemade pie–especially when you “cheat” and use ready-made pie crusts–is that it only seems hard and labor intensive. Blueberry pie is especially easy because unlike most pie fruits, blueberries require almost no prep work.

Here is what you need:

1 package ready made refrigerated pie crust (2 crusts)5 cups fresh blueberries1 cup white sugar6 tablespoons cornstarch1 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon2 tablespoons butter1 egg yolk1 tablespoon heavy cream.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Let pie crusts sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes. Carefully unroll one of the crusts onto 9″ pie plate.

Step 2: Unroll second crust onto large cutting board. Using decorative pie crust cutters or a small cookie cutter, cut shapes out of crust. Alternatively, you could cut the crust into strips to do a lattice-type crust.

Step 3: Add sugar, cornstarch, salt, & cinnamon to blueberries; carefully mix together until blueberries are evenly coated.

Step 4: Pour blueberries into pie crust; cut butter into several pats, then arrange pats overtop of blueberries.

Step 5: Cover blueberries with second pie crust. Crimp edges together, then place cutout shapes overtop of crust.

Step 6: Whisk together egg yolk & heavy cream; brush over pie crust.

Step 7: Place pie on cookie sheet and bake for approximately 50 minutes at 425 degrees. You may want to cover pie with foil after 20-25 minutes so that it doesn’t get too brown.

Step 8: Let cool at least 1 hour before serving. Depending on your preference, serve chilled or warm with vanilla ice cream!
