Blueberry Cheesecake Dessert

How can you go wrong with both cheesecake and blueberries? You can’t, because this Blueberry Cheesecake Dessert is outstanding! I have combined my  Fresh Blueberry Pie recipe with a graham cracker crust, along with an added cheesecake layer. You can make this dessert in an 8×8 pan or make it as a pie. It is a rich dessert, so if you make it as a pie, cut the pieces small! 

Crust:

16 graham cracker squares, crushed – approx. 1  1/2 cups

1/4 cup. melted butter

3 T.  sugar

 

Cream Cheese Filling Layer:

12 oz. cream cheese, softened

4 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup sugar

 

Blueberry Layer:

2 pints fresh blueberries  ( use one for the blueberry sauce and one fresh pint on top of the cooked cream cheese layer)

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1 cup sugar, scant

3 T. lemon juice

 

Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter together and press in either an 8×8 pan or a 9 inch pie pan. For the filling, mix the softened cream cheese, beaten eggs, and sugar together and spread on top of crust. Bake 25-30 minutes until center is set. When cool, put one pint of fresh blueberries over the cream cheese layer.
