Blueberry Delight Recipe

Cookout season has officially started! Barbecues are one of my favorite gatherings whether it’s a backyard BBQ or beach BBQ.

They’re as fun and breezy as summertime. Part of the reason is because everyone just brings a dish to pass so you get a feast without all the work!

I always like to have a go-to savory recipe like Tuna Pasta Salad and a dessert recipe like this Blueberry Delight with graham cracker crust.

It’s almost no-bake, but the crust needs about 5 minutes in the oven to set up. It’s a graham cracker-pecan crust and I promise the toasty, nutty flavor is worth it!

UPDATE: some people say they don’t bake their crusts in the summer and it comes out fine!

If needed, you can leave out the nuts and use all graham crackers. You can even substitute another cookie for the crust such as vanilla wafers or shortbread cookies.

It’s a very versatile dessert! Just be sure to let the crust cool completely before adding the next layer.

The middle layer is cream cheese based. Think no-bake cheesecake, but even fluffier.

If you love the rich flavor of cheesecake, try my No-Bake Pineapple Cheesecake Bars instead.

This blueberry delight has a very light texture and flavor, which lets the blueberries and toasty crust shine.

Use well-softened cream cheese so it will blend smoothly with the whipped topping.

Homemade whipped cream will work as well if you prefer not to use cool whip.

You’ll need about 3 cups whipped (approximately 1.5 cups of cream).

The third layer is simply blueberry pie filling (how easy is that!). Of course, you can use any flavor pie filling you like.

It won’t be blueberry delight, but cherry or even lemon would be amazing!

Lastly, it’s topped off with a layer or whipped topping (or homemade whipped cream).

I also like to add chopped pecans for extra crunch and to highlight the delicious crust.

Let it all chill and you have a blueberry layered dessert for all your summer parties!

What do you call this dessert? Blueberry Delight? Blueberry Lush or Blueberry Yum Yum?

I’ll be making this for the ladies group at church. I’ll let you know how everything turns out. I’m sure they’re going to love it. Is there a recipe for gluten free?

Rebekah

Sunday 15th of August 2021

I don't have a specific recipe, but gluten free graham crackers shouldn't be hard to find. Check the other ingredients, of course, especially the brand of blueberry filling.

Can you clarify the measurements on the graham crackers. They come in different size sleeves, so that measurement is ambiguous.

Rebekah

Saturday 7th of August 2021

1 sleeve = 9 crackers = approximately 1 cup of crumbs. Hope that helps!

If I don’t have a food processor... Could I skip the nuts and just crush up graham crackers?

Rebekah

Tuesday 27th of April 2021

Yes absolutely. You need approximately 2 cups of crumbs, about 15-18 crackers.

I make my own wild blueberry filling. Lots of extra fruit. Question have you ever made ahead of event and frozen this dessert?

Rebekah

Tuesday 30th of March 2021

Wild blueberries are the best! I've never frozen it, but I think it would work for this dessert.

My Aunt use to make a desert called Idiot delight. Much like this except used lemon. Can you find a recipe for Idiots delight?

Rebekah

I love lemon! I'll have to look into that, but you can definitely use lemon pie filling instead of the blueberry.
