Huckleberry Cheese Pie Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. + chilling 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!!"
