Ingredients:

  • 1 individual package graham crackers (9 full crackers)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup sugar (optional)
  • 10 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons milk or half-and-half
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1.5-2 (21-ounce) cans blueberry pie filling
  • 2 (8-ounce) containers frozen whipped topping, thawed

Directions:

  1. Pulse graham crackers and pecans in a food processor until finely ground.
  2. Pour into a large bowl and add melted butter and 1/4 cup sugar (the sugar is optional. It’s just as good without the extra). Stir to mix.
  3. Press into a 9x13-inch pan and bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Let cool.
  4. Using an electric mixer (or with a whisk and brute strength), beat cream cheese, milk, and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Fold in 1 cup of whipped topping. (Save remaining whipped topping for the final layer.)
  5. Spread cream cheese mixture on top of crust.
  6. Spread blueberry pie filling on top of cream cheese layer.
  7. Top with remaining whipped topping.
  8. Chill thoroughly before serving (aim for an hour or more).
