Blueberry Delight – The Perfect Cool Dessert

Hot temperatures call for cool desserts, and this Blueberry Delight is the perfect cool dessert. It is made of shortbread cookies, cream cheese, whipped topping, pie filling and pecans – so many of my favorite things. My mom makes a great Blueberry Yum Yum but when I asked for the recipe, it called for mixing cornstarch and cold water. I know that seems simple for some, but I can only make simple, straightforward recipes that are hard to mess up. This Blueberry Delight thankfully falls into that category.

 

Blueberry Delight

Ingredients

  • 1 (10-ounce) package Lorna Doone Shortbread Cookies
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 (16-ounce) containers frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 (21-ounce) can blueberry pie filling
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Crush the cookies and reserve about 1/2 cup of the crumbs for the topping. (I ended up using all 10 ounces on the bottom and crushed more for the top.) If you don't have a food processor, simply drop cookies in a gallon zipper bag and crush by hand.
  3. Mix the cookie crumbs with the melted butter. Press them into the bottom of a 9x13-inch glass baking dish. Bake for 5 minutes and then cool completely.
  4. Combine the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and 1/2 of of the thawed whipped topping by stirring by hand. Once thoroughly mixed, spread the mixture over the cooled crust.
  5. Drop dollops of the blueberry pie filling over the cream cheese layer and spread carefully. Sprinkle pecans over the pie filling.
  6. Top with the remaining 1/2 of whipped topping and sprinkle with the reserved crushed cookies. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

You can cut the Blueberry Delight in neat squares for a pretty presentation, but my family ended up just eating the leftovers by the spoonful and loved it.

This recipe seems pretty versatile and I am sure you could substitute another type of pie filling. Let me know if you decide to make your own blueberry delight or get adventurous and go for another flavor.
