Contest-Winning Blueberry Cream Dessert Recipe

Here is a tasty, cool treat I especially enjoy serving for spring or summer luncheons or as a light finish to dinner. Feel free to vary the flavor to strawberry, orange, raspberry or whatever fruit is in season.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:9 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream

  • 1-1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
