Cream Cheese Pastry

I made Judy's Peach Pie but wanted to try a new crust recipe with a cream cheese pastry which was delicious.

  • 3 1/3 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • 1-8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  1. Combine the dry ingredients and work in the butter and cream cheese until you have a crumble texture. Add the cream. 
  2. At this point the dough may be chilled for an hour for easier handling, but I made my pies immediately. 
I found this crust not to be as flaky as my other one, but richer and very tasty. This amount makes 2-8 or 9 inch double crusted pies. Just double the filling if you are using Judy's recipe for peach pie. I highly recommend you do as peach pie is awesome!!! 


  1. This looks delicious and one of my friends on facebook says that this is her favorite crust for her pecan pie!

  2. It looks really good and delicious and I believe that it will be good in taste as well. Thank you for sharing the recipe with us, will be asking my wife to make it for us
