Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie

This was served to us at cousin Ted's house in Hawaii.  The buttery crust made it so delicious.  It is also very easy to make.

Crust:*  1 ½ C flour  (1 C)*
      1 ½ cubes butter  (1 cube)*

            Cut butter into flour and mix until crumbly.  Roll into a ball and press into a 9x13” pan or baking dish.  (10" pie plate)*  Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.  Cool.

Filling:  2 8-ounce cream cheese  (1 1/2 blocks)
¾ C powdered sugar  (1/2 C)
1 8-ounce Cool Whip  (
1 can Comstock pie filling**

            Whip cream cheese and powdered sugar.  Then mix in Cool Whip until smooth and creamy.  Spoon into pie crust.  Top with pie filling and chill for at least 4 hours.

*I just made this in a 10" pie plate using 1 cup flour and 1 cube butter.  Used 3/4 of the filling recipe, although I think the whole recipe would have fit in fine.  

**Obviously blueberry is the usual, but cherry is tasty, too.
