Blueberry Treat

Still on the blueberry kick here. Still also on the Farm Journal Country Cookbook. Still recovering from the Battle of the Bands at the library Tuesday night...While we had great bands, moving in the middle of the program to an indoor location as the skies opened and enjoying window rattling heavy metal inside the library while explaining to some teens why they need their shirts in the library was a little crazy.

I need a:
Blueberry Treat!
"Off the beaten path in blueberry desserts - rewarding taste adventure" (sounds scary)
1 1/2 c. graham cracker or vanilla wafer crumbs
1/4 c. sifted confectioners' sugar
1/4 c. melted butter or margarine
2 eggs, unbeaten
1/3 c. sugar
1 (8 oz.) pkg. softened cream cheese
1/4 tsp. salt
2 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 c. sugar
2 tblsp. cornstarch
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. water
1/4 tsp. grated orange rind
Mix together crumbs, confectioners sugar and butter; press in layer 8x8x2" pan.  Beat eggs; add 1/3 c. sugar, cream cheese and salt; blend together.  Pour over crumb crust; bake in moderate oven (375F) 20 minutes. Cool.  Cover with 1 c. blueberries.  Blend together 1/2 c. sugar, cornstarch, salt and water.  Add remaining blueberries and rind.  Cook over low heat until clear and thick stirring constantly.  Pour over berries.  Chill before serving.  May garnish with whipped cream.  Makes 8 servings.
