Blueberry Cheesecake~yummy!


My daughter made this delicious Blueberry Cheesecake and I just had to share it with y'all. If you're a cheesecake lover, you will love this recipe. It's adapted from 3 different recipes that she tweaked until it was what she was looking for.

For the crust:
2 1/2 cups Graham cracker crumbs 
1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup butter (melted)
Mix the 3 ingredients in a bowl then press into a greased 9" pie pan.
Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

For the cheesecake:
16 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese,sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour into baked crust. Drop 1/2 cup of blueberry sauce (recipe below) by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the cream cheese mixture; cut through with a knife to swirl the blueberry sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until center in almost set. Cool on wire rack for 1 hour then refrigerate for 3 hours. Cut into slices and dip blueberry sauce onto each slice.

Before cooking in oven with blueberry sauce swirled on top.


For the Blueberry sauce: (Reserve 1/2 cup for cheesecake mixture)
1 cup sugar
2 TBS. cornstarch
3/4 cup water
3 cups blueberries
Combine sugar and cornstarch in small saucepan. Stir in the water until smooth. Add blueberries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and set aside. Refrigerate sauce until ready to use.

  4. Jana, your blog has hit my weak spot. Cheesecake. I have actually had it wake me up for a sound sleep, in the middle of the night, saying, "Connie come eat me, you know you want me". I have never meant a cheesecake that I didn't like, but New York is my very favorite. Do you have a good rich recipe for plain ole New York cheesecake? Well, here I am drooling on my keyboard, wishing I were sitting at your kitchen table with a fork in my hand. Looking forward to going through your archives and seeing all your great recipes. Your newest follower . . . before I wish you a good evening, I want to invite you to come on over and follow my blog, no recipes, but lots of art, crafts, photography, travel and entertaining. Looking forward to hearing from you, your new blogging friend, Connie
