Blueberry Cream Cheese.....

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 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!

  1. I've made something like this with strawberries. Since we have a line of blueberry bushes, I might think about making it. Thanks!

  2. My hubby loves anything with cream cheese. I'll have to make this for him sometime. :-)

  3. Oh...and my favorite "berry" related food has got to be strawberry ice cream.
