Tips on Making Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie

This blueberry cream cheese pie is made easier with its no-bake ingredients. But there are still some tips you need to know to ensure its richness. We listed a few helpful baking tips for you to try when making this fruit and cream pie dessert. 

  • Use frozen or fresh blueberries instead of the canned ones. Using fresh or frozen blueberries gives the dessert a richer tart flavor. It also lessens the chances of a runny or gooey pie filling. Just make sure that you drain them properly, especially if you’re using frozen blueberries. 
  • Try making a homemade pie crust. If you have some time, make this simple no bake graham crust that pairs well with the rest of the ingredients. Alternatively, you can also try a baked pie crust version. Both the graham cracker pie and baked pie crust will taste amazing with the blueberry cream cheese filling. 
  • Avoid using evaporated milk. The blueberry cream cheese filling should have that thick and creamy consistency. Evaporated milk is too thin and silky. That’s why condensed milk is better for thickening the filling, and it’s also much sweeter.
  • Try mixing in fresh raspberries into the glaze or filling. Mix in other fruits aside from blueberries. You can add about 1 cup of each berry for a delicious blueberry-raspberry cream cheese pie combination. Other fruit variations include strawberries or blackberries as well to ensure that sweet and tart balance.
  • Serve with a delicious topping. Aside from the blueberry glaze, add more decoration to the dessert with some simple toppings. Try adding a dollop of whipped cream or lightly sprinkle some lemon zest all over the glaze.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you thicken blueberry pie filling?

To thicken your runny pie filling, try adding flour or cornstarch into the mixture and continue stirring until it reaches the desired consistency. You can also try tapioca, arrowroot, or potato starch as an alternative. Aside from thickening agents, remember to make sure that your canned or fresh blueberries are completely drained before adding them into the mix. Too much natural liquid or juice can make your pie runny.

Can you freeze blueberry cream pie?

Yes, you can freeze this blueberry cream cheese pie for a longer shelf life. Carefully cover the uneaten pie with plastic wrap and tightly seal to avoid any freezer burns. If you’re freezing individual slices, transfer each to a freezer safe zipper bag or an airtight container. This blueberry pie can last for up to 1 to 2 months in the freezer.
