Tell your mom she is as sweet as pie this Mother’s Day by serving her a slice of Sara Lee® Perfect Pairings™ Frozen Wild Berry with Lemon Crust.
During my childhood every holiday meal was made sweeter with a Sara Lee Premium Pie. My mom has never been much of a baker but she has always loved desserts. She doesn’t like to fuss over making a pie from scratch when she can enjoy a tasty pie that can simply be popped into the oven.
To this day she still keeps Sara Lee desserts in her freezer for when friends and family stop by.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner I am planning to surprise my mom by baking her one of the new Sara Lee Perfect Pairings Premium Pies.
There are two new flavors to choose from including Sara Lee Perfect Pairings Country Apple with Maple Crust and Wild Berry with Zesty Lemon Crust. I knew my mom would love the Wild Berry pie so I purchased one from Target this week to give it a try.
As the pie was baking the lemon scent filled the air. I was so excited to slice into it. I anxiously waited for it to cool enough to make that first cut.
It was worth the wait! Not only is this pie packed with orchard picked raspberries, blueberries, and cherries, it is baked in a uniquely flavored zesty lemon crust. It is so refreshing.
These pies have no artificial flavors, no high fructose corn syrup, and are naturally sweetened. The flavor of the berries and hint of lemon really shines through.
I just know my mom is going to love this pie and I bet your mom will too. I am certain you will love how easy it is to make.
This is the perfect dessert for your husband and kids to make for you on Mother’s Day too because it is just so easy.
To make your pie:
- remove the frozen pie from the box
- take off the protective plastic wrapping
- set the pie on a baking sheet
- cut 4 slits into the crust
- bake in a 400-degree Fahrenheit oven for 65-70 minutes
The hardest part is waiting for the pie to cool before cutting into it.
You will get nicer slices of pie once the filling has had a chance to cool. After about 45 minutes the pie will be the perfect temperature to enjoy your first slice.
Doesn’t that slice of pie look wonderful?
You can find the Sara Lee Perfect Pairings Frozen Wild Berry with Lemon Crust at Target in the freezer section. I found the 40 ounce pies near the other frozen desserts in my Target store. Use the Sara Lee Product Locator to find availability at a Target near you.
The pies are already a great quality dessert at a great price but as an added bonus from 4/21/19 – 5/12/19 you can save 25% off one of the Sara Lee Perfect Pairings using the Cartwheel app.
To make this Mother’s Day extra special for my mom, I created a cute printable greeting card that I will present to her on Mother’s Day along with her yummy pie.
If you’d like to print one out to give to your mom, just click on the image to get the pdf file. Then print it out on card stock or photo paper, fold the paper in half and cut out around it.
Be sure to write a sweet message inside and enjoy the special day together.
