Blueberry-Cream-Cheese-CrisDid you get a chance to freeze some blueberries this summer?  Here is a great recipe to use some of those in, although I’m sure you could use frozen ones from the store and it would be almost as good.

This dessert was very good.  It’s like putting a blueberry crisp on top of a cheese cake.  I loved the combination of the cream cheese and crisp together.  Make it for Thanksgiving dessert or hold on to the recipe until the blueberries are ready to be picked next summer and make it then!

Blueberry Cream Cheese Crisp

Cream Cheese layer

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 pint blueberries (2 & 1/2 to 3 cups)

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1/3 to 1/2 cup chopped pecans

For the cream cheese layer, preheat oven to 325.  Grease 8×8 inch pan (or one around that size).

Beat cream cheese, sugar, and flour until well-blended and smooth.  Add egg and vanilla and mix until combined.  Spread mixture evenly into the bottom of prepared pan.  Bake 15 minutes, or until just set.  Set pan aside while you prepare the topping.

For the topping, increase the oven to 375.

Place blueberries in a medium bowl.  Add granulated sugar and lemon juice, and toss to coat.  Set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix flour, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Add butter and mix with a pastry blender or fork until combined.  Dough will be crumbly.  Add pecans and toss to mix.

Pour blueberry mixture over cream cheese layer.  Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over blueberries.

Bake 22 to 25 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and the blueberries are bubbly.
