This show-stopping pie can be decorated to fit any season. I like to make stars for Independence Day, leaves for fall, hearts for Valentine's Day or even flowers for spring. Have fun with it! —Kerry Nakayama, New York, New York

Ingredients

  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • CHEESE FILLING:
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 egg yolk
  • BLUEBERRY FILLING:
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 6 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, divided
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint or 1 teaspoon dried mint
  • 1 egg white, beaten

Directions

Line a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate with bottom crust. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate; flute edges. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce heat to 375°.
In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk until blended. Spread into crust.
In a large saucepan, combine 1/2 cup sugar, flour and cornstarch; stir in water until smooth. Stir in 2 cups berries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Cool slightly. Gently stir in the lemon juice, mint and remaining berries. Pour over cheese filling.
Cut decorative cutouts in remaining pastry; arrange over filling, leaving center uncovered. Brush pastry with egg white; sprinkle with remaining sugar.
Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.

"Very good! Love fresh blueberries! Lemon and blueberry goes well together and was well received when I served it at a family summer picnic."

"Very easy to make. I should have let the blueberry filling cool some more before I poured on top of the cream cheese...Once it was chilled, you couldn't tell there was cream cheese in there- I was in a hurry though and didn't have time to wait. My husband loves blueberry pie but he didn't love the lemon in this. Maybe next time I'd cut back on that. Those aren't faults of the recipe though...it set up beautifully and looked so pretty. I cut out butterflies and tulip shapes to put on the top."

"The taste was wonderful. However, it did not set up and we had to eat from bowls instead of on a plate. I did use frozen blueberries (no fresh ones to be found here) and perhaps there was too much liquid and I need more thickener?"
