My co-worker Kari shared a wonderful recipe the other day with me, which I got permission to share with all on HubPages. She makes this recipe for family functions and whenever she needs something sweet. I'm a huge fan of blueberries so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it. Experience the great blueberry taste, or create your own choice of topping!

      Delicious. I like the contrast in texture between the filling and the crust. Voting this Up and Useful.

      This looks incredibly tempting. Am I right in thinking is sort of between a cream pie and a cheesecake? I wish we could get Cool Whip in Paris.
