To us Idahoans, huckleberries are a treasure! We've enjoyed this recipe a lot, and serve it as a "special treat" when we have out-of-state guests. —Pat Kuper, McCall, Idaho

Ingredients

  • BUTTER CRUNCH CRUST:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • CHEESE FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Dash salt
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions

In a bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and nuts. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Spread on baking sheet; bake at 400° for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from oven. While mixture is still hot, press into a 9-in. pie plate forming a pie shell. Cool completely.
For cheese filling, beat cram cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth; gently fold in whipped cream. Pour or spoon filling into cooled crust; refrigerate.
For topping, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt in saucepan. Stir in water until smooth; add 1 cup berries. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Add butter and remaining berries. Cool; pour over filling. Top with additional whipped cream if desired. Yield: 8-10 servings.

"I have made this numerous times with blueberries. It is phenomenal! I use walnuts in the crust. When baking the crust mixture, I reduce the oven temp to 350 & only bake it 10 minutes otherwise it would be burnt to a crisp."

"Made this according to the recipe, using fresh picked huckleberries (we live in Montana). It is absolutely one of the VERY BEST DESSERTS I HAVE EVER TASTED!!! I served it at a dinner party and all the guests just loved it! The texture is wonderful - does not fall apart when sliced. I would give this one 10 stars if I could! This one is a must-make!!"
