A bright and lemony cheesecake with blueberry swirls!

    For the blueberry sauce:
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • For the cheesecake:
  • 1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs (gluten-free for gluten-free)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 24 ounces (3 8oz packages) cream cheese, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (or heavy/whipping cream)
  • 1 lemon (juice and zest)
    For the blueberry sauce:
  1. Heat the blueberries and sugar in a small sauce pan over medium heat until the sugar melts and the blueberries start to burst, about 5-7 minutes, add the mixture of the cornstarch and lemon juice and cook until it thickens, about a minute, before letting cool.
  2. For the cheesecake:
  3. Mix the crumbs and butter and press into the bottom of a 8-9 inch springform pan.
  4. Beat the cream cheese, beat in the eggs, one at a time followed by the sugar, sour cream, lemon juice and zest.
  5. Pour the batter into a greased 8-9 inch spring form pan, dollop spoonfuls of the blueberry sauce into the cheesecake mixture, take a knife and swirl around the cheesecake three times, wrap the bottom of the pan in foil, place in a larger pan with a small amount of hot water and bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until set, about 50 minutes, turn off the heat and let sit in the closed over for 15 minutes before removing and letting cool at room temperature.

Option: Replace the graham cracker crumbs with vanilla wafer crumbs, gingersnap cookies crumbs, etc. Use gluten-free cracker or cookie crumbs for gluten-free.
Option: Replace the blueberry sauce with a strawberry sauce or a black berry sauce, a kiwi sauce, etc.
