Blueberry and rasberry cream cheese pie

I've been baking like crazy recently and I want to share a super easy and absolutely delicious recipe with you.

Finland has absolutely the best blueberries in the world. As a matter of fact the berries we call blueberries are called Bilberries or European Blueberries in other countries. No matter what, they are the best. The so called normal blueberries have a much milder taste and they are also more watery. Whether you are using Bilberries or just the "normal" blueberries, this recipe is worth trying, I can assure you!

You will need a pie dish (24-26cm wide) and the following ingredients:

For The Crust
125g butter

4dl flour
1 dl sugar
2 tablespoons potato flour
2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 dl plain yoghurt 
1 egg

For the The Filling
200 g frozen blueberries
1 handful of frozen rasberries
2  tablespoons potato flour

200g Philadelphia cream cheese
1 egg
2 tbs vanilla sugar
1 dl sugar

Cook in 200 celsius for 25-30minutes

First of all heat the oven. After this melt the butter in a heatproof bowl in the microwave. I use a big coffee mug. It takes about 1 minute for the butter to melt, and it doesn't have to be fully melted, as long as it's soft. Let it cool while you mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Mix the melted butter with the dry ingredients and finally add the youghurt and egg. Mix until texture is smooth. Next spread the batter into the pie dish:

Add the frozen berries on the batter and sprinkle the 2 tablespoons of potato flour on the berries.
Now it's time to prepare the cream cheese topping. I find it easiest to first mix the egg and the cream cheese in the bowl and then add the rest of the ingredients.Make sure there are no clumps.
Just pour the mixture on the berries evenly.

Now the pie is ready to go to the oven! Cook it for 25-30minutes in 200 celsius. The result should look something like in the next picture, but if it gets more of a golden colour, it's totally fine!
