Stay cool with summer sweets from Lucky Leaf

Yummy treats and Mason Jars, I mean, is there anything better than that combo???

Lucky Leaf has easy summer treats that are guaranteed to make a splash.

So summer is upon us and that means being outside, enjoying the fresh air and staying away from hot kitchens. With that in mind, Lucky Leaf has compiled a few recipes to make your summer cooler.

Let me tell you that I love Lucky Leaf Pie Fillings, but I'm sure you know that because I'm always talking about them and use them quite a lot in my desserts....but when I got the package in the mail and looked through the recipes included, my eyes immediately stopped on the one I'm sharing with you today.

Not only does it look adorable in the mason jars, but it features one of my husbands favorite flavors, Lemon.

I had NO clue that it was going to be so good, and I mean delicious make you sigh and groan in happiness good. It's like a lemon pie in a jar but with blueberries floating around. Oh goodness.

No Bake Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Trifles
Source: Lucky Leaf

1 frozen pound cake (10.75 ounce), thawed slightly and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
18 ounces fresh blueberries
1 recipe graham cracker streusel (see below)
1 recipe no-bake lemon cheesecake (see below)

Graham cracker streusel:

9 cinnamon graham crackers, crushed to crumbs in a food processor
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
Generous pinch of salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

No-bake lemon cheesecake filling:

24 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 1/2 cup Lucky Leaf Premium Lemon Pie Filling

To make the graham cracker streusel, toss all ingredients in a medium bowl until the butter is evenly distributed.

To make the cheesecake mixture, beat together cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Gently fold in the frozen whipped topping and pie filling until evenly combined.

Layer the graham cracker streusel, blueberries, lemon cheesecake mixture, and pound cake cubes in a medium mason jar until filled. Repeat with remaining jars.

You have to try this dessert, and whether you're using it in mason jars, or making a big trifle, either one will be the hit of the party, especially if you have lemon loving friends and family.

Thank you Lucky Leaf for providing me with the mason jars, the recipes and the delicious pie filling.


  1. Wow! I love the combination of lemon and blueberry, and no bake desserts are key in hot weather.. and it's going to be close to 100 here in Massachusetts over the next few days. I'm going to pick these ingredients up Friday, they'll be perfect to the cookout my friends are having. Sandra, would you say those jars are 8 oz sized?

  2. Oh my gosh that looks so yummy. I've not seen the Lucky Leaf brand here, so that's a bummer. I wonder if anyone else makes the lemon pie filling. Hmmmm.


  3. MM, yes they are the 8oz jars.

    It's a pretty big serving for one person, next time I'm going to make them in the smaller 4oz jars OR as a big Trifle.

  4. Lemon is my favorite. Looks delicious.........
