This recipe was inspired by the desperate need for a cream cheese dessert I had at my sister-in-laws bridal shower. One of her friends made this heavenly concoction of cream cheese, blueberries and graham crackers. I searched all over the internet until I found something similar and than made my own little adjustments here and there until finally, this is what I came up with.
Here's what you'll need:
3 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup chopped pecans, walnuts work too
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
3 tablespoons butter
2 8 oz package of cream cheese
2 tbs honey, warmed
2/3 cup powdered sugar, add a spoonful or two more if necessary.
3 teaspoons lime juice
2-4 tbs milk (optional, to lighten consistancy of cream cheese)
4 cups fresh blueberries (any berries work for this)
1/2 cup Cool Whip
Pour in the cinnamon, sugar, graham crackers and pecans into a bowl, stir in butter. In another bowl, mix cream cheese, honey, lime juice and powdered sugar , you want this to be smooth. Make sure you do a "taste test" to see if its sweet enough for you.
Serve this in any large serving bowl, but if you have a clear glass dish...it looks quite lovely. Your gonna wanna layer it in. Start with a thin layer of graham crackers, than some cream cheese, berries. Graham crackers, cream cheese berries...continue till your out of everything and than top with a thick layer of cool whip. Maybe add a couple blueberries to the top, or a sprig of mint... Oh my goodness is this ever delicious!
Bring this to any gathering and you'll be the new favorite cook, I promise. It might even be better than cheese cake. Ok...maybe I got a little over-excited... It's REALLY good though!
