"This is an excellent recipe on its own . I have tried to make it with eddiehamilton's variation without much success. Does anyone know how much cream cheese and how much cool whip is needed. Thank you"

"I love this recipe and will make it again and again. But I have to ask about the nutrition information. On the page below the list of ingredients it says each slice has 0 calories, 0 fat, 0 cholesterol, etc. While i love the idea of guiltless pie, it would be nice to know the actual stats."

"Excellent flavor, texture, and so easy! I followed this recipe exactly as shown. I'm sure this recipe will work well with any berry. Just adjust the sugar to the sweetness of the berry. This is so MUCH better than any canned pie filling! This is going into my recipe collection today."

"This is the best recipe I've ever tried. I even used the base and used strawberries and it works too. I took a bowl of Cool Whip and a block of cream cheese a tablespoon of lemon juice and a 1/2 cup of sugar and mixed It together, put it in the bottom of a graham cracker crust. Then, put the blueberry or strawberry topping on it and... WOW! I'm the new hero at home...lol"

"I have fresh blueberries that I had froze. Do you think I can use them and if so should I thaw them first?"

"Made this pie to use up some of my homegrown blueberries. I used a premade graham cracker crust(I'm lazy) and took it to a church dinner-I didn't even get a piece before it was gone. Many great remarks though-I will surely make it again."
