Blueberry Heaven

Creamy, cool and with a satisfying crunch at the bottom, this unusual dessert really is heavenly! The pineapple in this dish takes a backseat, pumping up the blueberry flavor for a summery sweet treat.


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 stick melted butter
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (plus extra to sprinkle on top if desired)
  • 1 container (8-ounce) cream cheese
  • 2 containers (8-ounce) Cool Whip
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 can (20-ounce) blueberry pie filling*
  • 1 can (20-ounce) pineapple pie filling*


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. First layer: Sift flour into melted butter, then mix in pecans. Press mixture into the bottom of a 13-x-9-inch pan. Bake until lightly browned (about 20 minutes). Set aside to cool completely.

  3. Second layer: Combine cream cheese, one container of Cool Whip and the powdered sugar. Whip until smooth, then spread over the first layer.

  4. Third layer: Spread blueberry pie filling on second layer.

  5. Fourth layer: Spread pineapple pie filling on top of the blueberry filling, then top with another container of Cool Whip and sprinkle with chopped pecans. Chill — or even freeze — for a summertime treat.

*Alternatively, you can make your own filling. For pineapple, combine 1 can (20-ounce) of pineapple (drained), 5 tablespoons flour, ½ cup of sugar, 1 egg and ½ cup of water over low heat, stirring until thickened. For blueberry filling, follow the same process, subbing out a pint of blueberries for the pineapple.

    • Marcia — we couldn't agree more! That’s why we were happy that Alice provided instructions for make-your-own filling. You can find them at the bottom of the recipe.
