1 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1 cup powdered sugar
8 oz package cream cheese
1 12 oz frozen whipped topping
3 cups blueberries
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp lemon juice

ABOUT BLUEBERRIES

Blueberries are delicate, so handle them gently. When you get them home do not wash them. Just put them in the refrigerator.  After they have been refrigerated, then wash them right before you are ready to eat.

If you are going to freeze them, again, do not wash them. You can do that when you thaw them.   Just place them in a container with about an inch of air space on top. 

You may also fill the container of blueberries with syrup until covered. If you plan on baking with them, cover them with syrup (1 1/2 cups sugar in one quart of water).

If you want to use them to top ice cream and waffles, raise the sugar level to 4 parts water to 3 parts sugar.

Blueberries are one of nature's marvels! Don't miss out!
