No-Bake Blueberry Pie - such a great way to enjoy pie in the summer!

I don’t really think of myself as a pie person.  My sister?  She loves pie.  My dad, too.  I like pies a lot, but don’t get all that excited about them too often.  However, I have a history with this blueberry pie (it pretty much blows every other pie out of the water).  This summer I decided to make a no-bake version.  It simplifies things and adds a nice item to the “don’t-have-to-turn-on-your-oven” repertoire.  Traditional pie crust fans, I’m sorry.  But to the rest of us who are all about the filling anyway, the graham cracker crust is still a great compliment to this perfect specimen of a fruit filling.

Recipe type: Dessert
Makes: 8 servings

Graham Cracker Crust
  • 180g (1 ½ cups) finely ground graham cracker crumbs (10-11 full sheets)
  • 55g (¼ cup) granulated sugar
  • 85g (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
Cream Cheese Layer
  • 113g light or regular cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 41g (3 tablespoons) granulated sugar
  • 15 milliliters (1 tablespoon) heavy cream
  • 2 milliliters (½ teaspoon) vanilla extract
Blueberry Pie Filling
  • 165g (3/4 cup) granulated sugar
  • 25g (3 tablespoons) cornstarch
  • 1g (1/4 teaspoon) salt
  • 570g (4 cups) blueberries, separated in half (if you can, group the best looking blueberries together, you will want to cook the blueberries that aren’t “perfect”)
  • 60 milliliters (¼ cup) water
  • 15 milliliters (1 tablespoon) fresh lemon juice (from ~1/2 lemon)
  • 14g (1 tablespoon) unsalted butter, softened at room temperature

  1. Prepare pie crust; in a medium bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter
  2. Press crust ingredients down with your hands into a 9-inch pie plate
  3. Place crust in refrigerator and make cream cheese layer and filling
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer use whisk attachment to combine ingredients until creamy, light and smooth; set aside and prepare blueberry pie filling
  5. In a medium heavy duty pot, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt; add half of the blueberries and water
  6. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until blueberry mixture turns thickens and turns a very dark purple; this will take several minutes
  7. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice and butter
  8. Fold in remaining blueberries
  9. Assemble the pie; remove crust from refrigerator and spread cream cheese layer evenly over top; gently spread blueberry filling into pie, making sure to keep cream cheese layer intact
  10. Chill in refrigerator at least one hour before serving and store leftovers in refrigerator; serve at room temperature

Slightly adapted from this pie which I blogged about here
Crust can be made up to 24 hours before filling, just cover it in seran and keep refrigerated
Pie should be enjoyed within three days of making
