blueberries and cream cookie pie

Yum
I am always looking for new dessert ideas that are quick, easy, and delicious.  After spending all that time cooking dinner I want something that can be put together easily but also looks like I put some time into it.

Today I spent 3 hours at a car dealership, just to get an oil change (before you say "why didn't you go to the quick lube", we have the care package with free oil changes... if you go to the dealership... and wait), then had to take all three kids grocery shopping.  On a normal day this wouldn't be too terribly bad, the kids on the other hand had way to much energy and were so over the day at the dealership.  I was... to put it nicely... exhausted!  HOWEVER, we were having dinner with friends and it was my turn for dessert.  I was short on time, but didn't want to pull the "here are the brownies I grabbed at the grocery store" trick, but "thanks so much for dinner!".  I'll admit... I also didn't want all of the preservatives from the pre-made desserts;)  What sounded good?

  Sugar. Berries. Cookie. I put it all together and came up with this.  Sugar cookie bottom, creamy white chocolate cream cheese, and berries to top it all off.  This is so easy, I almost felt like I was cheating! :)  Have extra strawberries or raspberries that you need to use?  They would be great also!!!


Servings 10-12
Total Time 45 min

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 batch of sugar cookie dough (store bought works too!)
  • 1 cup white baking chips
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, set out 15 minutes before starting
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries


INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Press the sugar cookie dough into a greased 9x13 pan (I used a larger pan, but that made my cookie bottom thinner, so it depends on your needs).  Bake for 15-17 minutes, until the cookie dough is just done.  Cool completely.


In a small sauce pan, over medium-low heat, melt the white baking chips while stirring.  When you can no longer see any of the chips remove it from the heat.  Add the cream cheese and use a hand blender to beat until creamy.


 Spread cheese over the cooled cookie crust.


 Place berries on top.


Enjoy!!!
