For the Crust:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Cream Cheese Layer:

  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whipped cream or whipped topping

For the Blueberry Layer:

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water

For Garnish:

  • Additional whipped cream
  • Fresh blueberries


Step 1: Prepare the Crust

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter.
  2. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish to form an even layer. Chill in the refrigerator while preparing the next layers.

Step 2: Make the Cream Cheese Layer

  1. In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth.
  2. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and beat until well combined and creamy.
  3. Fold in the whipped cream or whipped topping until incorporated.

Step 3: Spread Cream Cheese Mixture Over Crust

  1. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the chilled crust in the baking dish. Use a spatula to smooth the surface.

Step 4: Prepare the Blueberry Layer

  1. In a saucepan, combine blueberries, granulated sugar, lemon juice, and water.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  3. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch with a tablespoon of water to make a slurry. Stir the slurry into the blueberry mixture.
  4. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5-7 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened and the blueberries have softened. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

Step 5: Add the Blueberry Layer

  1. Spoon the slightly cooled blueberry mixture evenly over the cream cheese layer in the baking dish. Spread gently with a spatula if needed.

Step 6: Chill and Serve

  1. Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to set.
  2. Before serving, garnish with additional whipped cream and fresh blueberries if desired.
  3. Cut into squares and serve chilled.

Tips and Variations

  • Frozen Blueberries: If using frozen blueberries, thaw them slightly before cooking.
  • Lemon Zest: Add lemon zest to the cream cheese layer for an extra burst of citrus flavor.
  • Crust Variations: Substitute graham crackers with crushed vanilla wafers or digestive biscuits for a different twist.
