Meyer-Lemon Ricotta pancakes for Sunday breakfast. Instead of making Lemon Curd I decided to make fresh blueberry sauce.
We were having guests for dinner, and I always like to bake a dessert to serve. I thought of the blueberry sauce... how could I use this? Could I make a pressure cooker cheesecake, and top it with this sauce Oooh, that would be good! Then, it hit me. Why not combine the pie idea with the cheesecake? Yes! That's exactly what I'll do!
fancy looking pie crust (though I do find that fun to do) So, I made an all-butter pie crust, layered a sweetened cream cheese mixture...
The topping was firm, and the crust had layers of buttery goodness.
As my family and guests dug in to our barbecued ribs, I heard someone say "make sure you save room for dessert". So, we did.
TASTING NOTES: I'm one of those rare Americans who isn't wild about pie crusts. My boys don't mind, because they love it. On the other hand, an all-butter crust will quickly change my mind. This is one of the tastiest pie crusts I've ever made. It was so tender, and you can't taste the apple cider vinegar. How can cream cheese and any kind of fruit filling not taste good? We loved this dessert, and I still have a little more blueberry sauce left. However, I think this would be good with any kind of berry sauce, or even cherry pie filling. I offered a scoop of ice cream, but everyone declined. They said the dessert was delicious enough without it. I'll take that as unanimous approval.

I hope you try it!
