Blueberry Cream Cheese

Food blogger Kelly from TheMeaningOfPie writes: "Bagels and blueberry cream cheese is easy. This is a great way to liven up a breakfast or brunch and the color is quite stunning. Add a big bowl of seasonal berries and call it good."

Ingredients:
  • ½ cup fresh Georgia blueberries, plus a few for garnish
  • 16 ounces cream cheese (2 big blocks), room temperature
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tablespoon water
  • ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar
Directions:

 

Rinse and drain the Georgia blueberries. Place them in a small saucepan with the granulated sugar and the water. Bring to a gentle simmer, stirring occasionally, and cook for about three minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer to a heat-safe bowl to cool. You may place it in the refrigerator to cool.

Once the sauce has cooled, place the cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer. Whip the cream cheese for one minute. Add the sauce a little at a time until it is thoroughly incorporated. Scrape the bowl to ensure that you have no white stripes. Add the confectioners’ sugar and continue to mix until it is thoroughly combined with the cream cheese.

Transfer the blueberry cream cheese to a serving dish. Cover it with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve. Garnish with fresh Georgia blueberries.
