Nutty Graham Cracker Crust
Fresh blueberry cheesecake pie with homemade crust written by: CisseS

The cream cheese filling is something every pie should have, everything should actually have some sort of cream cheese with it. Creamy, perfect amount of sweetness, fresh and not too heavy. This filling is like the cherry cream cheese filling we have all made before, but with blueberries, this will take your tastebuds on a trip to the moon and back! The lemon juice will help balance the sweetness and give it that freshness the filling needs.
