Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare crust: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

  • Coarsely chop walnuts in a food processor. Add graham cracker crumbs and process until the mixture looks like fine crumbs.

  • Whisk egg white in a medium bowl until frothy. Add the crumb mixture, butter, oil and salt; toss to combine. Press the mixture into the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of a 9-inch removable-bottom tart pan. Set the pan on a baking sheet. Bake until dry and slightly darker around the edges, about 8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

  • To prepare filling: Beat cream cheese, sour cream and 1/4 cup maple syrup in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. When the crust is cool, spread the filling evenly into it, being careful not to break up the delicate crust. Arrange blueberries on the filling, pressing lightly so they set in. Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons maple syrup over the berries. Chill for at least 1 hour to firm up.


Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate for up to 1 day.

Equipment: 9-inch removable-bottom tart pan

Tip: To toast walnuts, spread on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F, stirring once, until fragrant, 7 to 9 minutes.

Note: To avoid trans fats, look for graham crackers without partially hydrogenated vegetable oil. To make crumbs, pulse graham crackers in a food processor or place in a large sealable plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. (You'll need about 14 whole-wheat graham cracker squares to make 1 cup of crumbs.)

Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

super good and easy I happened to have some Neufch ótel in my fridge and never used this ingredient before and thought this recipie would be perfect to test it out when I needed to make a dessert last minute. I would have given it 5 stars but needed a couple tweeks to have a more complex flavor. To the filling I added about a tablespoon vanilla extract and about a fifth a cup raspberries and blended it in. Then in addition to blueberries I used a kiwi and a white nectarine for the fruit on top. Everyone loved it and had seconds. Read More

This was a good recipe and easy to make. I used the Midel whole wheat graham crackers and the crust didn't get soggy even after a few days in the fridge. I would make this again but cook the crust longer though. I really must take issue with the number of servings. 12? Really come on EatingWell. This serves 8 tops. Read More
