My blueberry was loaded this year and I've been looking for new and exciting ways to prepare them. I'd been thinking about apples. I even prepared a dessert a few weeks ago with apples and blueberries. I love a good 4 layer dessert and this one proved to be delightful. Hope you enjoy it.
Blueberry Apple Layer Delight
Preheat oven 350 degrees. Butter the bottom of a 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 dish
2 cups of tiny twist pretzels
8 squares of graham crackers
2 Tbl sugar
3 Tbl butter, melted
Pulse dry indredients till crumbs and add melted butter. Pat into square pan and bake for 13 minutes. Set aside and let cool.
2 cups blueberries
2 medium apples peeled, cored and chopped into sm.pieces
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 Tbl flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 tea cinamon
1 cup V8 Vfusion Pomegranite/Blueberry Juice
1 Tbl butter
Place all of these ingredients into a pot and cook on low stirring often for about 30 minutes. Apples should be soft cooked. Set aside and cool completely. May need to place in fridge to finish cooling. (You don't want it to be warm when adding to crumb mix.)
After the fruit mixture is completely cool - spread on top of the baked crumb crust.
Layer 3 - Cream Cheese Layer
3/4 of a tub of Cool Whip
8 oz softened Philadelphia Cream Cheese
Mix with an electric mixer till blended.
Spread on top of fruit mix.
Layer 4 - Pudding
1 sm pkg of Jell-o Vanilla Pudding
3/4 cup of half-n-half
3/4 cup of milk
Mix on low for 30 seconds and then on medium about 2 minutes. It will thicken as it sits a few seconds. Spread on cream cheese layer.
Spread remaining Cool Whip on top beginning from center.
Add crumbled candy bar - Hersheys Cookies and Cream Candy Bar.
I hope you enjoy it as much as my taste testers did.
