Whip up a dreamy no bake blueberry dessert, aka blueberry delight, with cream cheese, Dream Whip, blueberry pie filling, and a pecan crust. Easy recipe!
If you've been blueberry picking, I've got the perfect blueberry dessert for you. Made with a pecan crust, blueberry pie filling, and a creamy layer of cream cheese lush, it's just as dreamy as fresh blueberry cobbler.
Growing up, my mom always made what she called a Cherry Crunch; it was my dad's favorite dessert. Well, this blueberry delight is a twist on that classic dessert.
While the pie crust does require bake time, the rest of this recipe is no bake. You can find links to both the crust recipe and the pie filling in the printable recipe card toward the bottom of this post.

INGREDIENTS FOR A NO BAKE BLUEBERRY DESSERT:
HOW TO MAKE THE 3-INGREDIENT PIE CRUST
Making the crust is so simple and easy and requires just a few minutes of bake time.
It requires only 4 steps…
- Melting the butter.
- Mixing the butter with the flour and pecans.
- Pressing the dough into a 13″x9″ baking dish.
- Then just bake and cool.

ALTERNATIVE PIE CRUST OPTIONS
You can get creative with the crust, as well. For instance…
- Graham cracker crust
- Pecan Sandies crust – Make it like you would a graham cracker crust.
- Easy shortcut no-roll pie crust (without nuts)
- Vanilla Wafer crust
- Buy a store bought crust and press pecans into it. (This would likely make a smaller pie.)
- Line a graham cracker crust with sliced bananas.
TIPS FOR HOW TO MAKE THIS EASY BLUEBERRY DESSERT
I've tried making the cream cheese filling with homemade whipped cream; for some reason, it just hasn't worked as well. So I usually reserve my whipped topping for the top and use Dream Whip for the filling, which is what my mom uses in her Cherry Crunch.
Now some people do make this filling with Cool Whip, but I’ve carried on my mom’s tradition of a creamy Dream Whip filling. I like to call it angel fluff.
Tips and steps for making blueberry delight with Dream Whip…
- Beat the cream cheese separately first thing. This will help it soften up more, and it will blend in better with the Dream Whip, once you’re ready for that step.
- Mix the Dream Whip according to the package directions (also included in the recipe card below). You can also follow this tutorial for how to make Dream Whip.
- Then, using a mixer, fold in the whipped cream with the confectioners sugar and softened cream cheese.
- Spread the creamy filling on top of your cooled pie crust in the baking dish.
- Then top it all off with the blueberry topping (pie filling).
And that's it! You can save back a little bit of Dream Whip and use the remaining whipped topping for the top, maybe add a dollop on each slice you serve.
This recipe is so easy. If you're not quite ready to serve it, just cover it and chill in the refrigerator; and it'll be ready when you are.
Another great tip… You can split the Dream Whip filling (and the blueberry topping) in half to make 2 smaller pies.
CAN YOU FREEZE BLUEBERRY DELIGHT?
You can definitely make this recipe ahead of time, freeze it, and thaw it when you need it.
Now one tip… I would definitely freeze it before adding the pie filling. Especially if you're using canned pie filling, it'd be super easy to just add that later on after you've thawed the crust and creamy filling.
Just be sure, if you do freeze this dessert, to cover it well so it doesn't get freezer burnt.
