It’s so funny to me how people react to us when they see us out with the twins. I am totally aware of how insane twins are, but it’s funny to me how people must think we are barely surviving. 🙂

A couple weeks ago, we took the twins out with us to lunch for the first time. It went pretty well considering. We fed them while we ordered and waited for our food and it seemed like we managed the chaos pretty well. But the next thing you know the waitress told us someone anonymously paid for our lunch, ha! We must have looked like more of a train wreck then I thought! And then of course shortly after we received our food, Brooks lost it and the hubs didn’t get to finish his lunch. But we were still happy with our little outing and felt like it was a success just by doing it.

Then the other day, we took the twins to the park on a walk. We each had one in a carrier and brought Jessie. When one guy ran by with his dog, he gave a very wide buffer saying that we had our hands full enough without his dog getting our dog riled up. And several women commented about having our hands full. Ha!

It’s funny how nice people are when they think you’re drowning in babies. 🙂 Things definitely feel insane sometimes, but I also feel like we’re doing pretty well. I guess we look like more of a mess than we feel though!

Fortunately I still find time to make pie and it’s not the hot mess we look like as a family. 🙂

This Blueberry Crumb Cheesecake Pie is based on this apple version. Both are so darn good and I’m loving this berry version for summer. One of my favorite things about summer is all the berries – bring ’em on!

The pie starts by making the blueberry filling, which needs some time to set before moving on to putting the whole pie together. It’s made with blueberries and cooked over the stove with some sugar and cornstarch to thicken it up.

Next up is the crust and I just used a store bought one. Add it to your pie plate, add a nice border and set it in the fridge. The cheesecake filling comes next and is simple to put together with just cream cheese, sugar and an egg.

Spoon the blueberry filling top, add the crumb topping and you’re ready to bake it! It’ll still have a little jiggle to it when it’s done baking, but will firm up as it cools.

Serve the pie with some ice cream and you’ve got the perfect summer treat! It was a big hit at our house with family and friends and nearly caused a fight for the last piece! Now that’s some good pie!

Scale

Ingredients

BLUEBERRY FILLING

  • 1/2 cup (104g) sugar
  • 4 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 4 1/2 cups (625g) blueberries

CHEESECAKE

  • Refrigerated pie crust
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup (52g) sugar
  • 1 large egg

CRUMB TOPPING

  • 6 tbsp (48g) all purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp (33g) quick cooking oats
  • 6 tbsp (84g) packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp (42g) unsalted butter, melted

Instructions

TO MAKE THE BLUEBERRY FILLING:

1. Stir together the sugar, cornstarch and salt in a large saucepan. Whisk in the water until everything has dissolved, over medium-low heat.
2. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring regularly. Reduce the heat slightly and simmer for 2 minutes.
3. Add the blueberries and increase the heat to medium-high, allowing the blueberries to releases their juices. Continue heating and stirring, allowing the mixture to boil a little and thicken for about 8-10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let the mixture cool.
4. Refrigerate the filling in an airtight container for 4-6 hours to thicken. Store in the refrigerater for up to 2 weeks.

TO MAKE THE PIE:

5. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 9-inch pie plate with non-stick baking spray.
6. Place the pie crust in the pie plate. Fold the edges of the crust under and mold them to your preference. Refrigerate until ready to use.
7. To make the cheesecake layer, beat the cream cheese until creamy.
8. Add the sugar and beat the mixture until smooth.
9. Add the egg and beat until full incorporated. Do not overbeat the batter.
10. Spread the cheesecake batter in the prepared pie crust.
11. Gently spoon the blueberry filling on top of the cheesecake batter.
12. For the crumb topping, mix together the crumb topping ingredients. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the blueberry filling.
13. Bake the cheesecake pie for 40 minutes.
14. Remove the pie plate from the oven and place it on a wire rack. Let the cheesecake pie cool for 1 hour, then refrigerate for 2-3 hours, until completely chilled.
15. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.

    Hi Lubdsay,
    I’ve just gotten done making the blueberry portion – and mine went to THICK with 3.5 more minutes to go out of the 8-10. I think the heat was a bit too high for the pan I was using. Should I have continued cooking so that more juices would have been released? I was concerned because I wasn’t able to get through to the bottom of the pan completely with my spatula, and was afraid that would burn and color the flavor of the whole batch. Any thoughts? Thanks! Kitty

    When I read the title I knew I had to try this pie, and I made it yesterday and it was delicious!!! For some reason I forgot to grease the pan, so it was messy to serve, but it was okay because I didn’t make it for any occasion, I just really wanted to eat that pie! Your recipes never disappoint!

    This pie has my name all over it!  Cheesecake + pie is the best of both worlds!  Definitely making this and the apple one soon. 

    I’m so glad to hear about the kindness of strangers toward your family. The news is filled with so many bad things. The fact that others are taking a strangers situation  into consideration (whether they have it right or are totally mistaken) is so good to hear.   If we all just do one random act of kindness each day, imagine the happiness you can bring someone who may be struggling. 

    Thank you Lindsay!!

        I made this the other night for a work friend’s birthday and it was a huge hit!  I have to admit I cheated with a can of blueberry pie filling instead of making my own and it was perfect. I’m trying another version this weekend with a can of diced apple/peach pie filling I bought.  This is an excellent recipe when you need to make something easy but truly impressive. I know I’ll be making this over and over with fruit fillings. Thank you!!!

    I enjoy the family updates! Thanks for sharing with us. Now, on to the delectable pie. This sounds
    wonderful and easy to make. I like any type of fruit dessert–pie, cake, cheesecake….I will add this

    to
    my dessert menu. As always, thanks, Lindsay!!! Enjoy your day with the family!

    You will definitely have your hands full!  But as they grow up, they will be best friends and entertain each other .  My cousin has twin boys and they are so fun.  This pie looks amazing!
