4
egg yolks, lightly beaten
2 1/2 Tbsp
corn starch
2 Tbsp

1/4 c
milk
6 oz
cream cheese- softened
1/4 c
plus 1 tablespoon - fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 Tbsp
lemon zest
1 tsp
vanilla extract
whipped cream & fresh blueberries for the top

BLUEBERRY SAUCE - FOR 2 DESSERTS - DOUBLE FOR MORE OR CAN USE CANNED BLUEBERRY PIE FILLING

1 c
blueberries
1/4 c
sugar
1/4 c
water - or more for thinner sauce
1 Tbsp
corn starch

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place the 3/4 cup milk in a medium saucepan along with the 3 tablespoons of sugar. Bring to a boil.
2
In a bowl, lightly beat egg yolks and add the cornstarch, 2 Tablespoons sugar and 1/4 cup milk and mix.
3
Pour the hot milk into the egg yolk mixture & whisk together, then return all to the saucepan. Over medium heat whisk constant until mixture thickens.
4
Once thickened, turn heat down and whisk in the cream cheese, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla, until pudding is smooth. Remain on heat for another minute or so.
5
Pour pudding into a dish and place plastic wrap directly onto pudding to keep it from forming a skin. Place in refrigerator and chill for a few hours.
6
Make your blueberry sauce:

In a small saucepan, place your blueberries. Mix the cornstarch, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Pour the mixture over the blueberries and then add the water.

Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until thickened and sauce becomes clear. About 4 - 5 minutes. ( if too thick, just add more water until you get the desired thickness.) Set aside to cool.
7
Assembly:

Get a tall clear glass, wine glass or miniature parfait cups and place a few dollops of pudding in the bottom of glass. I used a baggie for the pudding and cool whip, to squeeze into the cups for a neater presentation.

Next, some blueberry sauce, whipped cream, cookie crumbs then repeat the steps, until you get your glass as full as you want it.
8
Top with fresh blueberries, cookie crumbs and whipped cream.
