The pie of my dreams has come to fruition. It is now a real, taste bud tantalizing, creamy dreamy, blueberry smacking pie or it was! It is now in our tummies. Yes I had to share it with my family. My, so-so on dessert, husband loved it and wanted a slice every night. My little one even picked a slice each night over Easter candy. What? No, no, no! I thought they might each have a little slice and the rest would be for me. I thought I would cut it into slices and freeze them to enjoy. It’s gone. The whole pie is gone. There is not a crumb left. I am so sad but so happy at the same time. It is gone because it was so lip smacking good, holy cow good or as we like to rate food, it was a “Wow”.

Luckily it was easy to make so it will live again some day this summer. It might have to be my birthday cake, actually birthday pie. When I was little, I always had a chocolate cream pie. I might have to ditch the cake to go back to Blueberry Birthday Pie. Or, this just came to me, make this into a Blueberry Cream Cheese Cake. Oh, I like that idea. I wasn’t kidding when I said this was the pie of my dreams. I vaguely remember eating a blueberry pie with some type of cream cheese topping when I was in college, umpteen years ago. I remember the sensation of tasting and eating it but that is about it. This one elicited some of the very same reactions, sheer pleasure. And I wonder why I have trouble losing weight. (I am doing much better by the way)

I feel like I was a renegade with this one and used {gasp} frozen wild blueberries. Yes, I ditched the fresh so I could use wild blueberries. Unfortunately blueberries have gotten so undependable anymore. Some may be sweet but most seem to be tart. The wild ones are small and sweet. That is what I wanted for this pie and they really kept their structure. I was so happy I didn’t end up with a mushy blueberry pie. It still would have tasted delicious but it wouldn’t have been as “purrty”. If I was a cat, this pie would have made me purr. My cat certainly thought she should have some. Our dog was eyeing our plates, too. Hello, I’m not sharing.

Whip up some Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie for yourself. Believe me, you won’t want to share either. Maybe hide a slice or two for yourself before your family descends on it. Let me know if this blueberry wonder has you purring too.

    This reminds me of my beloved Marie Calendar’s blueberry or raspberry sour cream cream cheese pie from when I was a kid. I wonder if I could add a smidge of sour cream to the cream cheese filling?

    • Christie Daruwalla says

      Hi Finny, We are thinking the same thing. Yes, I think you could add some sour cream. I added yogurt in place of it to make it a little healthier.
