These are a star-shaped baked crust, filled with fresh blueberries and a most delicious cream cheese mixture, my advise is double the recipe, cause you'll end up eating most of them yourself LOL!... they are so good. Note: only use fresh berries for this recipe.

I am a Pampered Chef Consultant and made this for a business office. They loved it and so much that the orders and show booking just poured in. I'm sure our great products had something to do with it, but this recipe was great!
