No-bake Blackberry-Plum Pie (Two Ways)

Two variations of one delicious Blackberry-Plum Pie that doesn’t require any baking and had the most delicious no-bake oreo cookie crust.

No-bake Blackberry-Plum Pie (Two Ways)

Happy Sunday everyone! It’s very unusual for me to post on Sundays but today’s a special occasion. I’m sharing a recipe that was made in collaboration with my two fellow bloggers Kristina and Mateja from Story On A Plate blog. The recipe is by the talented Mateja, Kristina took care of this amazing styling and I was happily hiding behind the camera.

We shot the whole thing at Kristina’s house. She’s got a beautiful garden and the most amazing little studio in the basement. Check the photo below. Isn’t it cute 🙂 And the light is absolutely stunning. I’m secretly jealous of that place.

We started our day with coffee (tea for me) and delicious breakfast that Kristina prepared one her tiny balcony. And then we spent hours in the studio. It’s so much fun working with other creative people, especially since I don’t do it often. Kristina and Mateja are the nicest, so creative and talented. We’re planning on making more collaborations in the future and I’m super excited about that!

We’re enjoying our last days of Summer…

The heat is supposed to end tomorrow and then we’ll be ready for Autumn. I can’t wait for long Autumn forest walks and all the colors of that season. I probably said it too many times, but early Autumn is the favorite time of year. Still, I’m enjoying the last day of Summery heat and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate that than with this delicious blackberry-plum pie.

Two ways to make this blackberry-plum pie

The procedure of making it is basically the same. The only difference is how you make the purée. The two ways are:

  1. Making purée with fresh fruits
  2. Cooking the fruits and then making the purée

So what’s the difference?

Cooked purée has a deeper flavor while the non-cooked one is more light and fresh. There’s also a difference in color. Cooked purée gives a more reddish color while the non-cooked gives a more purple color.

Ingredients

Oreo crust

  • 250 g oreo cookies
  • 70 g unsalted butter

Fruit Purée

  • 200 g blackberries
  • 200 g plums
  • 80 g icing sugar
  • juice of ½ lemon (only use if you're making the cooked version of the purée)

Other ingredients

  • 100 g cream cheese
  • 100 g heavy cream
  • 10-15 ml rose water
  • 10 g gelatine

Instructions

Oreo Crust

  1. Melt the butter.

  2. Use a food processor to very finely grind the oreo cookies. Add butter and pulse a few times. Transfer the crust to a pie tin with removable bottom. Press the crust evenly to cover the bottom and the sides. A glass with a straight bottom is very helpful for forming even and straight bottom of the crust. Chill before filling.

Pie Filling (First Option)

  1. Cook blackberries, sliced plums, lemon juice, and icing sugar until soft. Purée them in a bender. Pour the purée into a sieve and use a rubber spatula to press the purée through the sieve. Discard the solids that remained in the sieve.

  2. Prepare the gelatine as per instructions.

  3. Use a stand mixer to quickly (about 30s) whip cream cheese and heavy cream. Add 200g of fruit purée. Continue mixing with medium speed while adding prepared gelatine.

  4. Pour onto the chilled crust and leave in the fridge to set overnight.

Pie Filling (Second Option)

  1. Purée blackberries, plums, and icing sugar in a blender. Pour the purée into a sieve and use a rubber spatula to press the purée through the sieve. Discard the solids that remained in the sieve.

  2. Prepare the gelatine as per instructions.

  3. Use a stand mixer to quickly (about 30s) whip cream cheese and heavy cream. Add 200g of fruit purée. Continue mixing with medium speed while adding prepared gelatine.

  4. Pour onto the chilled crust and leave in the fridge to set overnight.

Decorating

  1. When the pie is chilled top with some more blackberries and plums.

Notes

  1. Why do we add gelatine while mixing? It is to avoid chunks of gelatine in the mixture. If we added galetine in cold puree without mixing we would get chunks that would look and taste unappetizing.
  2. For a more purple color use a higher blackberry to plum ratio and the non-cooke version of the purée.
  3. You can use amaretto instead of rose water. Amaretto and plums are a very classical combination

First let me brag a little. My broken leg is getting much better. I’ve been cycling, swimming, dancing… It feels very liberating to be able to move normally. 

And to be able to hold stuff in my hands. What?

Yeah, when you’re using crutches it’s hard to even bring your meal to the table, go figure. Don’t get me wrong, I had my highly developed methods to do this, but I’m glad to be rid of them. 🙂 🙂

Now to the no-bake blueberry cheesecake…

Let’s admit it. Noone want’s to bake a cake in the crazy summer heat. But we still want cake, right?

A light fluffy refreshing cheesecake that melts in your mouth.

All you need is your favorite cookies. If you like chocolate chip, go for it! You could even use Graham crackers (don’t forget to add a little sugar or honey if you use those). I’m using butter cookies, yum!

I’m ashamed to admit, but the first time I’ve tried cream cheese frosting was three years ago in Norway, when I had their famous carrot cake. It was enough to become obsessed with it. This cream cheese filling is made similarly to that frosting.

Only it contains a secret ingredient. One that I shouldn’t really be eating, because my body doesn’t process it well. But once in a while it’s fine to sin. It’s not sin if it’s good, is it?

Yoghurt 🙂

I added it, because it gives the cheesecake a little freshness and sourness to the filling.

Oh yeah and did I mention the filling is freaking creamy and not overly sweet. The sweetnes actually depends more on the cookies and the fruit you use.

As for the fruit, you could use any kind that you like. We are blueberry freaks over here, so we can’t resist them and their little blue faces.

Or the cheesecake filling for that matter. Or the no-baking part. 

Ah, all of it 😀
