I had totally forgotten about this recipe....it was stashed in the back of my dessert card file. I have so many recipe boxes or folders or clipping around that I totally need to get organized this year and bust a system out. I can't part with some of my actual handwritten recipe cards though....they have history/memories/sentimental value.
It was nearing Wednesday dinner with the Inlaws and I needed a dessert. I thought blueberry....which had me thinking fruity....which had me thinking cream cheese....which made a light bulb go off to remind me of this dessert.
I'm not even sure it has an actual name....nor can I remember where I got this...(from a person not a book) I hadn't made it in years, but knew it was a favorite of mine.
YOU MUST MAKE IT.....everyone went in for 2nds if not 3rds. That's when you know you have a winner on your hands. Simple ingredients Simple to prepare...what more can you ask for?
Blueberry Banana Dessert
1 pkg Pecan Sandies
8 0z cream cheese (softened)
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 pint cool whip
blueberry pie filling
cream cheese, powered sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla until smooth. Fold in cool whip
In a 9x13 layer pecan cookies on the bottom
top with banana slices
top with cream cheese mixture (I've even thought about doubling for extra)
*dollop cream cheese all over top and then spread together. Go slow ....takes a few mins to spread*
Spread blueberry pie filling before serving.
I like to make mine the day before.....and I put the pie filling in the fridge too. I will spread the filling before I serve...(I like things cold) The flavors overnight have a chance to marry ...and the cookies soften a bit....it's quite lovely!
A few of you were asking about a GENDER POLL.
