Cool Blueberry Delight

There’s just something about having a nice, cool 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 whipped cream is usually a hit with me and the rest of the family. 😉

One dessert my mom makes all summer long is this Blueberry Delight. We’ve always been fans of layered desserts, and this one has so many delicious layers. If you love blueberries, you’ll definitely enjoy this recipe.

How to Make Blueberry Delight/Lush

There may be a few layers but this blueberry delight (aka blueberry lush) is easy to make

Begin by crushing the 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 at 350 and let cool.

While that is baking, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and whipped cream (about 3 cups or once 8 oz. tub of cool whip) in a medium bowl 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.

Serving, Storing + Making Ahead

We know this is a popular dessert to make for company and if you don’t want to be rushing around the kitchen right before everyone arrives, you can definitely make this treat AHEAD OF TIME.

We recommend making it just 24 in advance and waiting to add the cool whip and cookie crumbs until right before serving.

If you have LEFTOVERS, you can STORE this by covering with Saran Wrap and placing in fridge for 2-3 days. You can also store in an air-tight container.

You can also change up the recipe by using different fruit pie filling (Cherry and Lemon are both great!)
