There’s just something about having a good fruity dessert in the summer time – don’t you agree?
All summer long all I’ve wanted is fruit. It’s just so refreshing and usually hits “the spot” when I’m trying to think of what to eat. Throw fruit into a dessert and it’s even better, right?? I admit I’m not a fan of all fruit-filled desserts, but anything with graham crackers, butter and cool whip is usually a hit with me and the rest of the family. 😉
Back in June, I was able to go back to visit family and we pretty much ate the entire time. If we weren’t in the kitchen making things ourselves we were out at all the great restaurants I miss so much. One of the first nights we were there my mom decided to try this Blueberry Crumb Delight dish that everyone loved. It was perfect in every way and was a delicious summer treat everyone enjoyed. I think you’ll like this recipe too, especially if you like Blueberries. 😉
Here’s the recipe:
Blueberry Crumble Delight Recipe
- 10 oz Shortbread Cookies
- 1/4 cup butter melted
- 8 oz cream cheese softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 8 oz Cool Whip
- 12 oz Blueberry pie filling
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat the oven to 350°.
Crush shortbread cookies in a bag. Take out about ½ cup of the mixture and set aside. Mix the remaining crushed cookie mix with the melted butter.
Place buttered crumbs into the bottom of a 8.5 inch x 11.5 inch pan. Bake for 5 minutes and let cool.
In a bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and container of cool whip until mixed well. Spread over bottom crust later.
Slowly pour blueberry pie filling over the cream cheese layer making sure it is spread all over.
Sprinkle crushed pecans over the pie filling.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour until ready to serve.
Right before serving add some cool whip and reserved cookie crumbs. ENJOY!

I think you’ll love this dessert! In fact, it would be really easy to change up by adding a different fruity pie filling (cherries, strawberries, etc.)
