I love super easy dessert recipes, especially ones that look like I spent way more time and effort than I actually did. Yup, I’m all about the lazy, especially in the summertime. It’s already hit the 100s here in Phoenix, and I have zero desire to heat up my house by using the oven.
Just a quick blast in a food processor to make the crust, a hand mixer to blend up the filling, and that’s IT! Chill it for a few hours then top with some blueberry filling. Slice it, and devour!
This would be awesome for a summer barbecue, or Mother’s Day, or any time you need an impressive, delicious but super easy dessert!
