The other day Big Daddy, love of my life, man who drives me bananas, my partner in crime and my babies’ daddy was thumbing through my All Recipes Magazine and came across a recipe that looked good to him. He rarely does this and just gladly eats whatever I make. Now in the past he has mentioned in passing that he had the envie for a blackberry cobbler, I make it and he forgets to eat it. Yeah that has happened. But still, he’s big daddy and I aim to please my man. Sometimes. When he is not annoying me. Which really could depend on the day or hour, because we are married and I am tired and we don’t live in a bubble. Ha ha!!! Truthfully I do aim to please when I can and he does not usually ask for much. He works so hard and takes good care of us and he deserves a pie if that is what he wants. So of course I was all over making him that pie asap. He cut that recipe out and I stuck it in my purse so I could get the ingredients on my weekly (ok triweekly…ok dang it sometimes daily) trip to Target. I collected the stuff I needed and a few days later (there was a delay called life) I set out to make my man a pie!! It was a success and he LOVED it! He raved about it. If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, he is mine all mine forever.
It was super easy to put together and the colors make it a shoe in for your upcoming spring soirees. So make someone happy today and make them a really effortless pie that will yield high praise for you. Also you make someone feel loved and valued. And that’s how you stay married. Lol! I wish it was all that easy but it dang sure cannot hurt.
Lemony blueberry layered pie
Stuff you need~
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant lemon pudding mix
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 (21 ounce) can blueberry pie filling
1 (9 inch) graham cracker pie crust
What to do with the stuff~
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, condensed milk and powdered sugar. Mix in with your standing mixer or electric mixer for 1-2 minutes, until smooth and creamy.
Blend in pudding mix, lemon zest and lemon juice.
Spread half of the blueberry pie filling into the bottom of the pie crust. Spoon the lemon cream cheese filling on top and spread to cover the pie filling. Speed the rest of the pie filling over the lemon cream cheese mixture. Cover and chill for at least an hour. Overnight is best. Enjoy!!!
