Birthday blueberry please-cake
This is not cheesecake—it is not tangy or ‘crumbly’ like cheesecake—but it is a little cloud of creamy, blueberry-y, crunchy scrumptiousness, and that sounds mighty fine by me. And the recipe could not be easier, especially if you have a Cuisinart. (Crushing graham crackers in a bag with a rolling pin is absolutely no fun; a food processor is definitely the way to go!)
