Dive Into the Blueberry Cheesecake Dessert of Your Dreams

Blueberry Cheesecake Dessert

yield: 12 SERVINGS

prep time: 25 MINUTES

cook time: 3 HOURS

total time: 3 HOURS 25 MINUTES

Ingredients

For the Crust:

  • 3 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs (or 2 sleeves of graham crackers, crushed)
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

For the Filling:

  • 2 - 8 oz. packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 8 oz. whipped topping, thawed
  • 21 oz. can of blueberry pie filling

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2

Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. (Note: I started with crumbs, but if you need to crush whole crackers in a food processor, do that step first.)

3

Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9"x13" pan. Bake for 10-11 minutes. Remove crust from the oven and let cool.

4

Meanwhile, use a hand mixer to mix together cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and lemon juice.

5

Fold in the whipped topping to the cream cheese mixture. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the graham cracker crust.

6

Spread blueberry filling over the top. Chill in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. (I was impatient and placed mine in the freezer for an hour, and it worked fine!)

7

Cut into squares to serve. Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to a few days.

Looking for a winning make-ahead dessert idea?

Sweet dreams are made of this! You’ve gotta try this creamy blueberry cheesecake dessert! It whips up in just a few minutes and is completely delicious and addicting. In fact, this is such an easy idea, my 12-year-old makes this by herself!

Warning: Dangerously easy dessert ahead!

I love simple no-bake desserts that you can easily make in a 9×13 casserole dish ahead of time and take with you to any potluck or special occasion. This tastes like a creamy fluffy cheesecake, and something all will LOVE!

Tips for making the BEST blueberry cheesecake dessert:

    • Don’t want to make a whole big dessert? I have cut this recipe in half and made it using a pie dish instead of 9×13 and it turned out fantastic! A pre-made pie crust would be even quicker.
    • If whipped topping, like Cool Whip, isn’t your favorite, substitute with a few cups of homemade whipping cream instead!

Oh. My. Yum.

This is such a great-tasting cheesecake dessert! It has that perfect graham cracker crust, creamy center, and berry topping people want from a cheesecake, but with the simplicity of a bar cookie. It was, dare I say, berry delicious.

    I make it even easier and use premade crumb crust. I’m just that lazy 🙂

    • DealLovinMama

      Lol! I was just thinking about doing this too 😳

    • Lina D

      Perfect!

  4. LC

    Yum!!

  5. candace

    Same as my mom’s recipe but she calls it a torte. I add a little extra butter to the crust 😉

  6. Donna

    I’ve always made mine with cherries …LOL

    • Lina D

      Awesome! I bet that’s yum.

  7. Mei

    Throwback to the 1970’s when my mother used to make this for family gatherings. What’s old is now new again!! I AM THAT OLD!!!

    • Lisa

      LOL! I think about that too:) Delicious, simple recipe. I use unsalted butter & sometimes I add some finely ground nuts to the crust.

  8. nin

    Anything to sub for the whipped topping? I typically don’t use that or whip cream.

    • MAITE740

      You can make your own with heavy whipping cream

    • Bunny

      Nin you could use CocoWhip Dairy-Free Whipped Topping. I’ve never used it but it definitely looks like it’s worth trying.

      • nin

        Thanks for the tips!

      • Jennifer

        So Delicious makes a great dairy free whipped topping if you can do coconut milk products. IMO, it is really delicious!

    • Michele

  9. Juma

    Oh my goodness this looks so good ugh I want a piece of this cheesecake bar . Will be making this this weekend. Mixed berries sound awesome. I like to make desserts like this in those metal throw away pans from the Dollar Tree so I don’t have to worry about it if I go to someone’s home and one less dish I have to wash. Thanks for an awesome refreshing dessert.

    • Lina D

      You’re so welcome!

  10. mel

    Oh my I’m drooling here!!! Def pinning to make this weekend! Have everything except for Graham crackers, so adding to my grocery list!! I was digging through the freezer the other day and came across 2 containers of Cool Whip that are getting close to their exp date and wondering what I could make with them. So 1 dessert and the other for Pudding pops!

    • Lina D

      I think you’ll like this one! Enjoy 😉

    Low Sugar Healthier Version:

    3/4 cup butter or ghee
    stevia or eurythritol, honey or 1/3 cup coconut sugar

    Filling:

    2 8-ounce package cream cheese or goat cheese
    1 cup powdered eurythritol or small amount stevia
    2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 Tablespoon lemon juice
    1 cup whipped cream or kefir cream
    frozen blueberries cooked down with stevia

    • marie

      Thanks, I was looking for a gluten-free crust alternative!

  12. Jahaira

    Can I use a different fruit instead of blueberries

    • Lina D

      Of course! Cherry filling or strawberry would be great!

  13. Holly

    I make something similar, but use Nigella’s no-bake cheesecake recipe (the BEST no-bake version I’ve ever found) and Martha Stewart’s blueberry topping recipe. It’s always a hit!

    • 50ShadesofLipstick

      Nigella has a few no-bake cheesecake recipes…which one do you make?

  14. Q

    I am trying this over the weekend. Thanks

  15. MichelleR

    You can use this same recipe to make individual mini-cheesecakes to bring to parties. It’s even easier because there is no baking of the crust. You literally use a Nilla wafer in the bottom of a cupcake liner. Make sure you use a cupcake tin so the mini-cheesecakes keep their shape while setting in the fridge. Top with any fruit topping you like. Cherry is my favorite! My mom used to make this to bring to parties when I was growing up. Now I make them. Always a hit!

    • Lina D

      Yum! What a great tip – thanks for sharing ❤️

  16. mAb

    4th of July coming up before we know it. This would be great with red, white, and blue such as strawberries or cherries and blueberries with the white peeking through. Got one of my dishes planned. Thanks so much for all of the ideas, all!

    • Lina D

      Yes!! Such a great idea 👍

  17. Bonnie

    How would this be to freeze for unexpected guest and would it thaw out like I just made it?

    • Lina D

      Yes I think so, especially if you use whipped topping. I think it’d freeze great if covered well in freezer!

      • Bonnie

        Thank you Lina. 🙂

  18. Jen L

    I this this would be cute to make into individual cups, but with blueberry & strawberry or cherry filling for the 4th of July!

    • Lina D

      Yes so fun and delish!

  19. Anne

    How can I print this without the pictures? With them it is 8 pages.

  20. marie

    Made this for dessert tonight and everyone thought it was sooo good!

    • Lina D

      Hooray! That’s so nice – thanks for sharing ❤️

  21. instush8593

    Amazing! very nice

  22. Bradley Martens

    If you don’t like the actual filling, can you just add fresh blueberries to the top?

    • Lina D

      Yes I’m sure that would work as well!

  23. Mamamia

    Made this recently, but instead of the lemon juice, I added in 1/2 pint sour cream. Mmmmmmm

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow – sounds delish!

  24. truckinjill

    Hey Lina! I made this cheesecake and it is delicious. I am not a baker at all, but this made me feel like one! Super easy and I love the hint of lemon in the cake. Thank you!!

    Side note: All my recipes this week are all Hip2Save…. 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      OH my gosh! Thanks for the sweet comment and so funny I’m making this tomorrow for a cook out also! 👍YUM.

  25. Pamela

    Hi, love this recipe! Sounds delicious and easy, my kind of baking, lol. My question is this.. Is lemon extract the same as lemon juice?

  26. Pamela

    I’m sorry, I read it wrong. I think I’ve looked at enough recipes tonight, lol

  27. Kayla

    Thanks for the recipe but please make it easier to print. I click PRINT and it printed the WHOLE page, all the photos etc. This is not the normal workings of recipes to be printed. I wasted so much ink and paper & who really needs the photos? :/

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh sorry and thanks for the feedback!

  28. Daneita

    This is one of my favorites!!!! I use to love this year’s ago but lost recipe, thanks for posting it

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome!! Thanks for sharing ❤️

  29. Resam

    Can I use regular sugar instead on powdered sugar in the cheesecake mixture?

  30. flora

    We’ve been making this for decades and it is super easy and yummy! In the summer, we substitute the canned blueberries for fresh picked.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome!! I love that idea and thanks for sharing 💕

  31. Leisa

    I made this for Mother’s Day. It was so good! I will definitely be making it again.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the feedback! Yum!

  32. Hhh

    I love this. Been making it for years, but I use chopped pecans for crust. AMAZING!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yum!

  33. Michelle

    I made the “cheesecake” so far. Just got it in the fridge. Going to make my blueberry sauce now. I am thinking of leaving the fruit mixture off and serving cherry pie filling and the blueberry sauce on the side. I can tell you right now though, for some reason I kept finding reasons to have to taste it 😉 WOW!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I bet it’s great with cherry pie filling! Yum

  34. DebJ

    I would make this a lot back in the day using a shortbread cookie crust and no flavorings. It was SO delicious!

    • DebJ

      Meaning no extract nor lemon juice.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks for sharing!

  35. ShellB

    Make this all the time! I use just a sprinkle of brown sugar in the crust instead of white sugar and quite a bit less powdered sugar in the filling.

  36. melaniemendenhallpine

    This sounds like the blueberry sour cream pie from Marie Callender’s! Would u be able to make this in a cupcake tin with liners? Thanks so much.

  37. ttmanuel

    I got to eat this at Lina’s house and let me just tell you… it was amazing. It’s a tough job having a friend that makes delicious foods, but someone’s gotta do it.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Haha thanks T! Love ya 😂💕

  38. phyllis Medlin wood

    I like to add pecans to mine. I like the crunchiness.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ohhh yum! Great tip thanks!

  39. robinlu29

    Just made it. Can’t wait for it to set!! Thanks for the recipe 😘

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! Enjoy 😉

  40. Diane Hanba

    Made it for Thanksgiving!!! It was delicious! Forgot to put the crust in the oven. Couldn’t tell…

  41. Joan Gignac

    Can this be frozen.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I’m sure it’d do great frozen similar to how a cheesecake is.

  42. Christine

    I made this today. Really simple to make and delicious! I’m going to make it again with 1/2 cherry 1/2 blueberry topping.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Great thanks so much for sharing!
