Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Kraft.

My mom has been making this dessert for our family for years and it is so refreshing and light for summer. Made with fresh blueberries that they grow up in NC at their mountain house, they always have a bountiful crop of sweet delicious blueberries and my mom then freezes to use later. This recipe can be used with fresh or frozen blueberries. It’s equally delicious either way!

This is a take-off of the old style cherry cream cheese recipe that we all grew up with, but really blueberries make it even better. Mom had a great idea when she started substituting blueberries in her version.

Does that look fantastic or what? This is a wonderful dessert for summer months, when you want something cool and refreshing.  Pop it in the fridge to cool it off and it is a very tasty treat.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie

One 9″ Graham cracker crust

1 8 oz. PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese bar

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1/3 cup lemon juice

1 tsp. vanilla

Mix the cream cheese with the condensed milk with a mixer. Then add the lemon juice and vanilla. Mix well to thicken. Pour into crust.

Blueberry Topping

1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

1/4 cup sugar

Heaping tsp. corn starch

Cook berries with sugar over medium/low heat, stirring well. Add a heaping tsp. corn starch to thicken. Mix well and cook about 5 min.

Pour over top of cream cheese mixture and chill for a few hours.

Slice, eat and sit back with a sigh of contentment! Let me know if you try this one. It is definitely one of our family faves!

  6. Oh holy cow. . . I looove graham cracker crust and I also love fruit mixed with cream, so this is a no-brainer for me. Yum!

  7. My daughter (who is 19) made the cherry version just this weekend! It was actually the 1st time she had ever had it which was funny because my Mom made it all the time!

    YAAAY, Rhoda! SOO happy to see this on here…. I grew up with this as one of Mother’s “special” desserts…. and somehow thru the years, I had misplaced the recipe….thanks so much for posting it… and guess what? I just happenend to have bought a pint of N.C. blueberries the other day( don’t tell, cause we also have great ones here in TX.) so we’re having this ASAP!
    Thanks for the chance to relieve such a delicious Summer memory!

  9. This looks dangerously good……wow just printing the recipe as it looks too good to not make! Stop by..doing an amazing giveaway for a gorgeous Kilim bench!

  10. YUMMY!! SO making this on vacation next week…looks like a perfect beach desert!

  11. Hi Rhoda

    I’m trying to catch up with my blog friends tonight. It seems like forever since I’ve had time to just sit at the computer and visit.

    Hope all is good with you.
    Hugs,

  13. wow this sounds great… I will be making it this week.. love the blueberry substitution … thanks!

  14. Made this last night – it was great!

  15. Melissa says:

    Made this for a party and it was devored. I tweeked it byadding an additional 4oz of marscopone and 1/2 containter of of coolwhip. It was delicious!!

  16. I can’t wait to make this recipe in a few minutes for my family dessert.. I know its more of a summertime dessert but I love these pies anytime! Except the directions say to cook for 5 Min.. at what temperature in the oven do I cook this for? also do I sit it on a bake sheet or leave as is
    and place in the oven without a rack underneath

    • HI, Holly, this is a no bake pie. The 5 min. cooking is for the blueberry topping that goes on top and the whole pie is chilled. Hope that explains!

  17. I picked some wild blueberries a couple days ago and wanted to make a pie for my dad for helping me. Made this recipe and it didn’t even make it out the door, my husband loves it! Says it’s his favorite pie!! And that is truly an honor considering all of his grandmas baking! Making another one now for my dad, let’s hope he gets this one :) the only this is, is that’s it’s pretty sweet, so pieces you serve could be a little smaller, also I prefer to make my own graham cracker crust, I like it a little thicker. Going to try it with raspberries next!!
