Preparation

Step 1

CRUST:
Measure the flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the cubed butter and mix with a pastry blender until it resembles coarse crumbles. Add the ice cold vinegar water by teaspoon and mix. Continue adding water until the mix barely comes together. Turn out on a piece of plastic wrap and form into a ball. Wrap tightly in the plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least one hour.

FILLING:
In a heavy bottomed sauce pan combine 2 cups blueberries, water, sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, lemon juice and vanilla. Cook covered over medium heat for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
Preheat oven 425°F.

Next, roll out pie dough adding flour as needed and press into a 9 inch pie plate. Prick the bottom with a fork. Place a piece of parchment paper over the dough and fill the plate with dried beans (or use pie weights if you have them). Bake for 20 minutes and reduce heat to 350°F. Continue baking 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.

Finally, spread the softened Neufchatel cheese over the pie crust. Mix the remaining 2 cups of blueberries with the cooked berries and pour the filling into the crust.
Serve chilled with whipped cream.
