"What could be more enjoyable than a slice of, delicious, Blueberry pie? Blueberries, or star berries as the Native Americans called them, are one of nature’s super foods. The humble blueberry is one of few blue foods, found in nature, and it is native to the Americas. The chemicals found in blueberries may contribute to fighting diseases and preventing against certain cancers. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, it’s only fitting that we should have a special day, in the form of Blueberry Pie Day, to celebrate them."- daysoftheyear.com
Yesterday was Blueberry Pie Day, and in honor of Blueberry Pie Day, here is our favorite blueberry recipe, our Blueberry Cream Cheese pie, a delightful creamy crustless pie with a tangy berry topping.
Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie
- 1 lb. cream cheese, softened
- 3 eggs
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon (tsp) sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon (tsp) good vanilla
- 1 cup sour cream
- 3 Tablespoons (Tbsp) sugar
- 1 teaspoon (tsp) good vanilla
Berry topping (optional)
- Cherchies®Blackberry Preserves (could also use Terrapin Ridge Farms Blueberry Bourbon Pecan Jam
- 1 pint Blueberries or blackberries
Beat the first five ingredients together until smooth. Pour into a lightly greased 9" pie plate. Bake at 30 minutes at 350. While the pie is baking, make the sour cream topping by mixing together the sour cream, sugar and vanilla.
When the pie is finished, cool for 20 minutes and spread the sour cream mixture on top. Return the pie to the oven and bake an additional 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Make the fruit topping by combining the berries and preserves in a small sauce pan, and cook for about 10 minutes on low. Cool for 5 minutes and spoon on top of cream cheese pie. Enjoy and celebrate everything blueberry!
