You’ll be saying bye bye to this American pie because it doesn’t hang around long! A sweet biscuit base filled with a creamy, lemony filling and topped with your favourite summer berries – flag arrangement optional! :)

 

In a medium sized bowl combine the digestives and the melted butter, mix until combined then tip into a 9” x 1” pie tin with a removable base. Press the mixture into the base and sides of the tin evenly. Cover and place in the fridge while you prepare the filling.
Beat the mascarpone and cream cheese with the sugar and lemon rind until evenly combined, make sure not to over beat. Remove the base from the fridge and fill with this cheese mixture.
Decorate the top left quarter of the pie with the blueberries and arrange the raspberries in strips in the remaining section, pressing down slightly into the filling. Refrigerate for an hour or until it is firm. Place the white chocolate stars on the blueberries and serve.
