The crust is fabulous! I love the nuts, buttery flavor, and texture. The cream cheese layer is light and creamy and, well, my homemade blueberry topping is fan-stinkin-tabulous!

*If you decide on a refreshing lemony taste try fresh squeezed lemon juice instead of the extract and toss in some zest.

This is a very adaptable recipe that will work well with almost any type of fruit. Want to lighten it up a bit, try fresh fruit instead of a pie filling.

You can make an amazing patriotic dessert for the Fourth of July by using fresh strawberries and blueberries.
