Blueberry Fluff

The dessert recipe from this weekend's birthday is called Blueberry Fluff, but any berry can be substituted.

My son likes blackberries, but Hubby has requested strawberries before.

I actually had some really great peaches this weekend, and thought about doing half in peaches and half in blackberries.

The recipe actually calls for a different crust, so I will give you both.

I will start with the original recipe.

1 cup flour (self rising is what I always use)
1/2 butter
1 cup chopped pecans

Work the three ingredients together and pat into a 9X13 dish and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until light brown. Cool.

Then mix...1 - 8 ounce cream cheese and 1 cup of sugar. Mix until smooth. Fold in 1 container of Cool Whip. (I use the mixer for the entire process...just slow the speed for folding in the Cool Whip)/

Spread onto crust.

Then cook...
2 cups of blueberries or any berry
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water

Cook 15 minutes. Thicken with 1/4 cup cornstarch. During the 15 minutes the fruit will be bubbly...after 15 minutes add cornstarch and make sure it is mixed in well.
Spread on cream cheese mixture and refrigerate.

I usually make this the night before I serve it.

Now, for the pretzel crust. Other than the crust everything else is the same.

1 1/2 cups of crushed pretzels. I just do this with my hand. My son doesn't like them finely ground.
Mix with 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup melted butter and pat into 9X13 dish.
Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes.

I will share the fudge icing recipe tomorrow.
