Blueberry Cheesecake Pie

OK this is my favorite blueberry recipe. It is the recipe that makes me excited about blueberry season every year. It is also the dirtiest recipe card in the box. So.... you know that means it is the best one! I don't remember where we found this one but it is now a family tradition. We get this treat once every year.

FINALLY! A blueberry cheesecake recipe. I've loved this desert forever but have never had it. I'll be having it now! I have an orchard about 4 miles from me...the BEST peaches. They also grow berries and you can go pick your own in the mornings.
