Reviews for Cream Cheese Blueberry Pie
"I made this pie for a ladies luncheon and everyone loved it. I have always baked the standard two-crust berry pie and this recipe now tops the list of summer favorites."
"5 stars for this delicious pie! Got lots of raves & "yum"s. I doubled the cream cheese (light) but not the powdered sugar. Also used whipped topping instead of whipping cream. I threw in some raw berries to the cooled berry mixture, too. Nummy!"
"I won first place in a pie contest with this recipe."
"good but really rich"
"I used low fat cream cheese, 1 cup lite cool whip instead of whipping cream, Stevia instead of sugar, reduced cornstarch to 1 1/2 tabs. and added 1 tea. of vanilla paste to the cream cheese mixture. Lower in fat & calories and still tastes great!"
"Wow, what a delicious pie and pretty to look at. I did not have whipping cream on-hand and used 1/2 cup of sour cream, it was fabulous."
"Easy and delicious. People love it."
"A taste pie, but not anything that I would write to mother about."
"Super easy to make and delicious. I also double the cream cheese layer. The last time I made it I used an oatmeal pie crust. Yum!"
"This was very good! I accidentally left out the whipping cream and it still turned out nice. I love graham cracker crust so I used that instead. And instead of the lemon juice I did the zest like someone previously suggested."
"OH! I also doubled the cream cheese filling and it was just the right amount."
"Good easy recipe. I would do a few things differently next. One would be to reduce the cornstarch. It came out too thick and syrupy for my liking. More like a blueberry pie filling rather than a topping. I'm thinking 2 tablespoons of cornstarch tops. Also, I might replace the lemon juice with lemon zest and add it to the cream cheese mixture instead. The topping is REALLY sweet. And since sugar is being added to the cream cheese, I might reduce the sugar in the topping next time too and leave half of the blueberries out to mix in at the end to result in a more light and fresh blueberry topping. Overall a good recipe but will tweak next time to accommodate my personal preference."
"I made this recipe as a gift and was asked for the recipe. I am seventeen years old and I have been cooking for several years...that's the first time that anyone has asked me for my recipe and I was so flattered! Also very versatile; I forgot the lemon juice the second time and it still came out great. Thank you, Taste of Home!!"
"Delicious and easy to make."
"This is perfect just as written. Thank you."
"I just realized...I made this last year too and it was a hit but I never whipped the whip cream! I am making it again now for a church contest and realized this. It turned out really good with out whipping it..more firm. Oops. I feel like an idiot, I always follow recipes so closely..oh well, if it doesn't win it doesn't win! lol"
"Not only do I love this recipe, but I have friends who beg me to bring this along with me! The recipe usually makes enough for me to make 2 pies, so I bring an extra along for them to keep! (I should clarify that I only put a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture on the bottom of the pie)DELISH!"
"Excellent!!! The only change I made was using Clear Gel Pie Enhancer instead of corn starch for thickening. It gives the blueberries a nice dark color and shine without a cloudy appearance. This is a wonderful recipe, and, so easy !!"
"Very good. I should have used a deep dish crust, especially if you do double the cream cheese filling. I will make it again!"
"very good, I also doubled the cream cheese part, but next time I am going to tweak the cream cheese part a bit, I'd like the filling to be more firm, less fluffy. still very good flavor, everyone wanted the recipe!"
"I agree with the previous review and double the cream cheese filling part! I may even triple it next time. It was very yummy!!1"
"very good and easy, except I used cool whip instead of whip cream to make it lite, just as good."
"Very good. I double the cream cheese mixture to make it even better."
