A mom friend and I went to the baking store a few days before Valentine's day and bought ladyfingers. I know I don't want to make Tiramisu and I just remembered the blueberry charlotte we used to buy back in Davao. That's why I thought of having this for our Valentine's day treat.
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 pint heavy cream
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 packages Ladyfingers, or 1 batch home baked
- 1 can blueberry pie filling, or recipe below
Whip cream cheese with sugar and vanilla until creamy. Set aside. Whip cream until very thick. Don’t go too far or you will have butter! Add cream cheese mixture and blend until smooth. Line an 8 inch spring form pan with Ladyfingers, bottom and sides. Fill with cream cheese mixture then top with blueberry filling. Chill for 6 hours. Serves 10.
2 cups blueberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp butter
juice and zest of one lemon
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring first 6 ingredients to a simmer. Simmer gently for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until filling becomes thick and glossy, stir in vanilla. Cool completely before topping cake.
