Heat oven to 425 degrees. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out pie dough to an oval about 16" wide. Trim a strip about 1-½" wide off each long side and discard. Fold over a 1" border along each long side. Put dough on a baking sheet and prick surface with a fork. Beat egg with 1 T.

In a bowl , combine cream cheese, sugar, lemon zest and juice and beat until smooth. Chill. Spread cream cheese mixture over the bottom of the baked crust and arrange blueberries on top.
