Blueberry Delight


It's summer time, time for some Blueberry Delight!! This stuff is amazing and has a wonderful blueberry taste!! The only issue with this recipe is it calls for four cups of blueberries. Fresh blueberries are the best, but if you get them from the store they can get expensive. Luckily, I was visiting my family in Michigan where I could pick some fresh blueberries for cheap!! I picked about 6 pounds of blueberries for $8 at a U-Pick Blueberries Farm in Benton Harbor, Michigan (3209 E. Empire St). Here's a photo of the blueberries I picked:

Crust Ingredients:

1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup flour

Filling Ingredients:

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
8 oz Cool Whip

Topping Ingredients:

4 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 cup sugar, divided
3 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup water

Directions:


  1. Combine crust ingredients. Spread in a 9x13inch pan for 15 minutes at 350. Remove from oven and cool.
  2. Cream together the cream cheese and powdered sugar. Fold in Cool Whip. Spread over cooled crust.
  3. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Add water and 2 cups of the blueberries. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened and translucent. Crush some of the blueberries as they cook. 
  4. Remove from heat and add remaining sugar and blueberries. Cool.
  5. Spread over cream cheese filling and chill.
