Contest-Winning Blueberry Cream Dessert

Here is a tasty, cool treat I especially enjoy serving for spring or summer luncheons or as a light finish to dinner. Feel free to vary the flavor to strawberry, orange, raspberry or whatever fruit is in season.—Harold Kruspe, Hall, New York

    Really like the taste of this dessert and especially how easy it was to make; being I'm really not into baking :)

    We both loved this dessert. It's so light, and the flavor of the fresh blueberries is enhanced by the not-too-sweet cream. It's also nice that you don't have to bake it, especially when it's 90+ degrees outside.

    I loved this dessert; however, I would use half the graham cracker crust ingredients for the bottom, and I would bake it for 10 or 15 minutes. Also, blueberries are so expensive right now, so I used frozen blueberries and drained them well.
