    We have some pretzels left over from our New Years party, but they've gotten kind of broken.
    I know desserts with a pretzel crust can be delicious.
    Often, though, they call for cream cheese, which I don't have.
    I do have yogurt and a can of blueberry pie filling.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I would imagine that you could make a cheesecake-style base with pretzels - blitz them up in a food processor with butter and sugar, and press into the bottom of a cake pan :)

    I understand that part - but what to put on top...
    Yogurt?
    Blueberry pie filling?
    What holds it together then?
    Thanks.

    Add a bit of cinnamon to the blueberry pie filling, and bake in the crust.
    When cool, spread yogurt on top of pie.

    Really? Cinnamon?
    Also, does it serve nicely? What holds it together? Thanks.

    It holds itself together - cheesecake bases are generally made from biscuits (such as graham crackers) and butter, sometimes sugar too. Once it is pressed together and either chilled or baked it holds its shape.
