How to Make a No-bake Cheesecake

1/2 cup butter (1 cube); 2 cups graham cracker crumbs; 1/4 cup sugar
"Mash" crackers; add sugar (I usually use a 9 x 13 dish)
Melt butter; add to cracker/sugar mixture
Flatten to cover bottom of dish
16 ounces cream cheese; 1/2 cup milk; 1/2 cup sugar; 2 tablespoons lemon juice ; blend until smooth
Pour cheese mixture over crumbs
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (or 1 can pie filling of any flavor); 3/4 cup sugar or to desired taste (I added arrowroot to thicken a little)
Cook blueberries and sugar until it starts to thicken (add arrowroot or desired thickener if desired); cool 
Pour over cheese layer
2 cups heavy cream; 1/2 cup sugar; 1 tablespoon vanilla (or use your favorite brand of whipping cream); top the fruit layer with the whipping cream
