How to make the best blueberry cream cheese pie with this easy recipe using fresh or frozen blueberries. Can be no bake and gluten-free too!

Cream cheese blueberry pie has to be one of my favorite desserts, kinda like cream cheese strawberry pie. It's full of creamy goodness and outstanding blueberry flavor.

One of my most popular recipes is my blueberry delight, made with Dream Whip and cream cheese. This pie is similar, but without the Dream Whip, and it's made in a regular pie plate.

Instead of using Dream Whip, I love to make a no bake, cheesecake-like, cream cheese filling with cream cheese, powdered sugar, and milk.

It's topped with homemade blueberry pie filling you can make with fresh and/or frozen blueberries. And also note, this pie filling requires minimal stove time, making it a win win in my book, cuz y'all know I don't like stove time.

This blueberry cream pie is perfect for a weeknight dessert, church potluck, backyard bbq, 4th of July celebration, and all manner of family and friend get togethers.

Although sometimes I'd rather have cake over pie, and that's when I make a lemon blueberry cake.

FIRST, LET'S TALK ABOUT PIE CRUST OPTIONS

Before you get started making your pie, you need to decide what type of crust you want for your blueberry pie.

Personally, I like to use my favorite regular single pie crust recipe, which I usually make gluten-free with my favorite gluten-free flour.

However, you can also go with any one of a number of other options:

  • Graham cracker crust
  • Pecan Sandies crust – Make it like you would a graham cracker crust.
  • Vanilla Wafer crust – like a graham cracker crust.
  • Golden Oreo crust – again, like a graham cracker crust.
  • Pecan nut crust – or buy a store bought crust and press pecans into it.
  • Store bought crust

Just be sure to make your crust ahead of time, so it's all set and ready to go. From that point on, there will be no baking necessary.

HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY PUREE

To make blueberry purée, you simply put blueberries in a blender, and blend them up into a purée. Your blender may even have a purée button.

It'll likely take around 3+ cups of blueberries, fresh or frozen, to make 2 cups of purée. If you're using frozen berries, make sure to rinse and dry them off so you don't get ice (aka, extra liquid) mixed in with the berries, which will lessen the flavor.

HOW TO MAKE A BLUEBERRY CREAM CHEESE PIE

Ok, you've got your crust made and ready to go. And you've got your blueberry purée ready to go too.

Now it's time to make the blueberry pie filling with said purée. Then I'll show you how to make the cream cheese filling.

  1. In a small measuring cup or bowl, whisk together the water and corn starch first. This will ensure no lumps in your pie filling.
  2. In a medium saucepan on medium heat, whisk together the corn starch mixture with the lemon juice, sugar, and cinnamon.
  3. Add the puréed blueberries and whole blueberries to the mixture. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries, but I highly recommend fresh blueberries for the whole berries.
  4. Cook the entire mixture for about 10-15 minutes, bringing it to a slow boil, stirring constantly 'til the mixture begins to thicken.
  5. Remove the mixture from the heat and allow it to cool completely. Sometimes I even stick it in the fridge to cool more quickly.
  6. Meanwhile in a separate bowl, mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and milk.
  7. Spread the cream cheese filling in the cooled and prepared pie crust.
  8. Top the cream cheese filling with the cooled blueberry pie filling.
8 steps for how to make blueberry cream cheese pie, including whisking corn starch and water, then mixing with lemon juice, sugar, and cinnamon in saucepan; adding blueberry purée and whole blueberries to saucepan, cooking blueberry pie filling in saucepan 'til thickened; cooling pie filling; cream cheese and powdered sugar in green mixing bowl; cream cheese filling in pie crust, and blueberry pie filling on top of cream cheese filling in pie plate

At this point, you'll need to chill the pie for at least 1-2 hours, or overnight.

Once it's chilled, you can slice it up, serve it, and enjoy! You can even top it with a dollop of Cool Whip if you want.

It's such a yummy pie!

HOW TO THICKEN PIE FILLING

If the blueberry pie filling doesn't seem to be thickening up enough, you can add a little more corn starch, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon at a time.

Just be sure to whisk the corn starch with a little bit of water first (about 1 tablespoon of water for every teaspoon of corn starch), so you're not just adding lumps to your filling.

HOW TO STORE BLUEBERRY CREAM PIE

Be sure to cover the pie and store it in the refrigerator if not eating right away. Any leftovers should be refrigerated due to the cream filling.

And yes, you can freeze this pie. Just be sure to cover it well and store it in an airtight pie container so it doesn't get freezer burn. It should keep for up to 2 months in the freezer.

HOW TO THICKEN PIE FILLING

If the blueberry pie filling doesn't seem to be thickening up enough, you can add a little more corn starch, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon at a time, while it's still on the stove. Just be sure to whisk the corn starch with a little bit of water first (about 1 tablespoon of water for every teaspoon of corn starch), so you're not just adding lumps to your filling.
