Making pie crust doesn’t have to be difficult – but sometimes you just want to whip up a filling and be on your way! That’s where ready-made pie crusts come in. Keebler Ready Crust Pie Crusts are on sale this week if you’re shopping at our Coborn’s stores or having your groceries delivered by – and we have some great recipes to help you create some delicious (and easy) desserts.

Fruit, pudding and ice cream fillings work great with graham cracker and shortbread pie crusts. Key Lime Pie is a classic way to use a graham cracker crust. We love this recipe for Key Lime Pie – just skip the instructions on making your own crust.

This Easy Easter Pie is a cinch to whip up and a festive dessert for Easter. The filling is melted chocolate kisses and whipped topping – with a center layer of chopped peanut butter cups!

Want your dessert to give you a healthy boost? This Chocolate Fudge Pie uses silken tofu as its secret ingredient.

A ready made shortbread pie crust is a delicious way to add a twist to a traditional cheesecake. This recipe for a Sour Cream Cheesecake is a great one to try.

Keebler also makes a chocolate graham cracker crust – so embrace your inner chocoholic and make a milk chocolate cheesecake filling for it!

This recipe from Good Housekeeping is delicious:

2 package(s) (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup(s) sugar
2 tablespoon(s) sugar
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup(s) whole milk
2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
1 bag(s) (11.5 ounces) milk chocolate chips, melted
1 1/2 cup(s) sour cream

In large bowl, with mixer on medium speed, beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 minutes or until smooth, occasionally scraping bowl with rubber spatula. Reduce speed to low. Add eggs, milk, and vanilla, and beat just until blended, occasionally scraping bowl. Add chocolate and beat until combined.

Pour cream-cheese mixture into crust. Bake cheesecake 45 minutes (cheesecake will jiggle slightly in center). Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir sour cream and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar until sugar dissolves; set aside.

Remove cheesecake from oven. Gently spread sour-cream mixture evenly on top of cheesecake. Return cheesecake to oven and bake 5 minutes longer to set sour cream.

Remove cheesecake from oven and cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours until well chilled, or up to 3 days.
