  • 1-1/4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • GRAHAM CRACKER MIXTURE:

  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant cheesecake or vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 quart heavy whipping cream

Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Gradually stir in water until smooth. Stir in blueberries and lemon juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, sugar and cinnamon. Stir in butter. Pat into an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on a wire rack.
