This Blueberry Cheesecake Dessert recipe is my husband’s childhood favorite with a light, moist cheesecake topped with blueberry pie filling and whipped cream.
Before I got married over 20 years ago, my family, my husband’s family and my friends gave me a box of recipes.
I love that recipe box and still have all of the recipes. They are tried-and-true recipes that I know I will turn out. I love that the recipes are handwritten which gives them a more personal feel.
While I realize that it is somewhat ironic for someone who shares recipes online to treasure handwritten recipes, it is what it is. I decided to share one of the recipes from my box called Blueberry Dessert.

Brian’s grandmother gave this recipe to me because she knew it was one of his favorites. Both his grandma and his mom used to make this dessert for him.
It is light, moist cheesecake topped with blueberry pie filling and whipped cream. Here is the recipe she gave me (with her name removed to preserve her privacy).
I’m not sure where the recipe originated so if you have the source, please share it with me and I will add a link to this blog post.
*Update: A couple of readers have said the credit for this recipe goes to Philadelphia Cream Cheese although I have not been able to locate it on their website to add a link here.
