Another KEEPER, I made it in a 7x12 pan and the bottom crust was just fine. I will do as one other person said and use blueberries for topping, just for a change.

This is a qick, tasty dessert. We liked it best served "as is" with no extra ice cream or whipped cream. Try blueberry pie filling for a change.

The crust amount needs to be doubled in order to cover the bottom of the pan, and sprinkle on top. I also doubled the cream cheese portion. Very good flavor with the walnuts.
