Preparation

Step 1

Line a 9 inch deep-dish pie plate with bottom crust. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate; flute edges. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450 for 8 mins. Remove foil; bake 5 mins. longer. Cool on wire rack. Reduce heat to 375.

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk until blended. Spread into crust.

In a large saucepan, combine 1/2 cup sugar, flour and cornstarch; stir in water until smooth. Stir in 2 cups berries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 mins. or until thickened. Cool slightly. Gently stir in the lemon juice, mint and remaining berries. Pour over cheese filling.

Cut decorative cutouts in remaining pastry; arrange over filling, leaving center uncovered. Brush pastry with egg white; sprinkle with remaining sugar.

Bake at 375 for 35-40 mins. or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 mins. to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate leftovers.
