This is a recipe from my mom. It's easy, light and flavorful! You can use canned pie filling (any flavor, really) but making your own really does taste better (and it's not all that hard to do!).
2 cups flour
2 sticks melted bullter
3/4 C. chopped pecans
Mix and press into a 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
8 oz. & 3 oz. cream cheese (Mama said she used 2 8 oz. cartons), softened
1 lb. box powdered sugar
12 oz. cool whip
Mix together and spread on top of the cooled crust
Homemade Blueberry Pie Filling:
2 cups blueberries
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup of water
3 T. cornstarch
Pour sugar over the berries. Stir water and cornstarch together and add to berry mixture & heat slowly until thick. When cool pour on top of cream cheese filling.
Add some cool whip to the top if desired but it honestly doesn't need it.
NOTE: For a patriotic flare, put blueberry pie filling in the left corner, cherry everywhere else. Pipe cool whip stars over the blueberry corner; stripes over the cherry part.
