Put cream cheese and two eggs in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat with a flat beater until smooth and fluffy. Add the other eggs, one at a time, beating briefly after each. On slow speed, stir in the rest of the ingredients except the blueberries and lemon peel. When mixture is well blended, stir in the blueberries and lemon peel.
