  1. Good afternoon Lady: I made the blueberry cream cheese for a friend, and I get good comments from the family, they love the cheese cake, they said, never had such delicious dessert and they told me that I’m so talented, made so happy because they did enjoy it, plus I did omit the walnuts on the crust looks that was not a problem. Thank you so much for this great recipe, next will make it for us.

    Have a good day,
    Libni

    • The Southern Lady says:

      They are below that toward the bottom of the page, however if you are using the browser Firefox and have your security settings really tight to avoid any extras on the page, you will not be able to see them. I am on Google Chrome and see all of them just fine.

  3. Good Afternoon; I love your recipes , I will let you know when I do make it how they come out.
    I have a question we don’t like walnuts, can I use anything else??? or not use nothing, please advise.
    Thank you,
    Libni

    • The Southern Lady says:

      I usually add some kind of nuts. You can use whatever you like. I have not made it without but see no reason why you couldn’t. Happy you enjoy the recipes and thank you.

  4. love your recipes keep posting.

  5. Wondering if this could be frozen for travel and then thawed? Sounds delish!

  6. Could you post the ingredient amounts for making this recipe in a 9 x 13 pan?

  7. Could you make this the day before?

  8. Paula Kurth says:

    This pie is wonderful! My grandmother use to make it all the time. If you have an allergy to nuts just add another 1/2 c. Of grahams and it will be fine. I have also used lime juice when I did not have lemons. It was super. Thanks so much for sharing this. I had forgotten about this recipe. Making it tomorrow

  9. If you use frozen blueberries( I picked them last summer and froze them) do you thaw them first?

  10. Just finished making the topping. It is soooo good. I think it would be great on pancakes

  11. Making this and wondering if you can make the topping and let sit in fridge overnight, then put on in the morning?

  12. I love cheesecake with any toppings but I never topped with blueberries before, simply because the never made it home. Lol

  13. years ago a friend gave me her recipe for an easier form of this. The middle layer is cream cheese and pwd sugar and cool whip. The topping is canned blueberry pie filling. The crust is flour, graham crackers, butter and walnuts. I have changed out the blueberry for raspberry or cherry and we love them all.

    • WOULD YOU PLEASE GIVE ME THE RECIPE? I WOULD LOVE TO MAKE YOUR VERSION. THANK YOU.

  14. Any suggestions on how this could be made without using Lemon juice?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Sorry, I don’t know what you would use in place of the lemon juice in this recipe that would work.

  15. Could u use black berries????

  16. Just made this for the first time and I followed the recipe exactly. This was GOOD! Will definitely make again.

  17. What exactly do you mean softened cream cheese!!! Use mixer on low, high speed or left out until room temperature? Waiting f your answer. Thx Debby

  18. Could you leave the nuts out of the crust for people with allergies?

  19. I added the lemon juice to the blueberry mixture in the beginning just took off stove will it still thicken while it cools?

  20. could I use black berries?

  21. Crush up Biscoff Cookies

  22. It was the best no baked cheesecake I have made. Several of my friends commented on how delicious it was and how much they liked the crust! It is definitely a keeper!

  23. I just finished making this delicious looking cheesecake and will be taking it to a barbeque with good friends. It looks so delicious ans I can’t wait to try it! Thanks for sharing.

  24. I love that this has instructions to make your own blueberry (or other fruit) topping instead of the expensive canned pit filling.

    Yummy sounding recipe. We’re featuring blueberries at Saturday Dishes. I’d love it if you brought this over.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,

    i love to cook and i want to try your recipe.yummy.

  27. What if you live in Australia where there are no graham crackers and nothing made of graham anything?

  28. I don’t have condensed milk so I’m using skimmed evaporated. Hope this works!

  29. Looks wonderful. Normally I use ricotta. But I just made my first philly cheesecake and well let’s just say it’s a good thing we don’t have too many cheesecakes. Way too addictive.

  30. Check out the crust on this one. I bet it is good!
