We have the perfect Mother’s Day dessert! You will love this Blueberry Jamboree. It’s from a delicious bakery that first opened in 1996 on a quiet street corner in the heart of New York City’s West Village. It’s called
Magnolia Bakery. They now have one in Los Angeles close to our sister Stephanie. She has had their delicious macaroons. We had this blueberry jamboree at a recent family party and it was a hit. It’s a pecan shortbread crust layered with real whipped cream and a cream cheese filling, and topped off with a fresh blueberry topping. Happy Mother’s Day!

Blueberry Topping: 3 1/2 cups fresh blueberries, divided 1/4 cup sugar 1/8 cup brown sugar 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons water 3/4 teaspoons lemon zest Crust: 3/4 cup butter, unsalted 2 cups flour 1 cup pecans, toasted and chopped Filling: 2 cups heavy whipping cream 16 ounces cream cheese, room temperature and cut into chunks 2 cups powdered sugar
In a large pan combine 1 1/2 cups blueberries, sugar, and brown sugar. Cook over medium high heat and stir constantly. Stir until sugar is combined and blueberries start to pop and come to a boil. Dissolve cornstarch in water. Add the cornstarch/water mixture in the pan with the blueberries and stir until the mixture becomes thick. After it has thickened, remove from heat and add the remaining 2 cups of blueberries, then add in the lemon zest and stir in gently. Cool to room temp or refrigerate until ready to use. Grease a 9x13 inch glass pan. For the crust, melt the butter and stir in the flour and pecans. Press crust evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Cook at 325 for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Then let crust cool to room temperature. For the filling, whip the heavy cream and set aside. In another mixing bowl beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar together until smooth. Then add the whipped cream in with the cream cheese mixture and combine. Then spread over the cooled crust. Spread the blueberry topping over all. Let set in the fridge for about an hour.
