Helpful hints

  • If a gelatin mold is not available, a 9 "x 13" pan can be used instead. Spread cream cheese mixture on top of congealed gelatin.
  • Most brands of flavored gelatin contain phosphate additives.

Blueberry Buckle

This is my first recipe to try on this site; I really appreciate that it states how many cups (2/3) are in a serving. While the helpful hints suggests a 9 x 13 pan, I thought a 9 x 9 would work better for me.

I think a part of the directions are missing. What do you do with the blueberry mixture? Dietitian comment: See step #2. After adding pineapple to the blueberry filling you add it to the gelatin and refrigerate to congeal.

Couldn't figure out why this is called a buckle since a buckle is more like a cobbler but I will give it 5 stars because it is easy and extremely yummy!!!

It sounds very tasty except I feel the carbs and calories are too high as I'm trying to lose weight.
