After a six-week “Quick and Easy” miniseries, good ol’ regular Pioneer Woman episodes are back in business this morning on @foodnetwork!

This strudel-inspired confection is a total crowd pleaser. A custardy mix of cream cheese, ricotta, and egg—marbled with a swirl of tart cherry sauce—bakes up into a delicious filling. Plus, to make it easy, the bottom crust is made with store-bought puff pastry. “Blind-bake the puff-pastry crust really well, so the bottom is airy, light and crisp,” says editorial food director @sarahcarey1. And scoring it gives the edges a rustic braided look. Grab the full recipe featured in our November issue at the link in bio + be sure to tag #imsomartha in your best pie posts for a chance to be featured on our Instagram!👆🏼📷: @christophertestani | recipe + food styling by: @sarahcarey1 | prop styling by: @tanyagraff1
