You can substitute the blueberries with strawberries, blackberries, raspberries or even a combination of them all.

Preheat your oven.

In a medium saucepan add the water, blueberries and sugar.

Heat until blueberries are soft and bubbling.

Remove about 1/4 cup of the liquid and set it aside for later.

Add the cornstarch and whisk away any clumps.  Cook a few minutes longer until thick. Let cool completely.

In a medium bowl combine the graham cracker and 1/4 cup sugar.

Add the melted butter.

Mix the graham cracker until completely moist.

Press the graham cracker into the bottom and along the sides of you pan.

A great way to do this is by using a straight sided glass.  It will help press everything evenly.

In a large bowl beat together the cream cheese and remaining sugar.

Add the flour.

Beat in the eggs one at a time.

Beat in the sour cream.

Beat in the milk and vanilla.

Finally stir in your reserved blueberry juice.

Pour the filling into your pan with the prepared graham crust.

Bake in the oven for about one hour until browned and puffy.  Turn off the heat and leave in the oven for an additional hour.

Spread your blueberry sauce on top before serving.
