Blueberry Cheesecake

Standard

I love all desserts with the word “cheesecake” in it…blueberry, strawberry, cranberry… GLAZED FRUIT is delicious on damn near anything! And the cool thing about this recipe is if you have some leftover compote left, you can use it for breakfast on an English muffin, pancakes or even waffles! IMG_5756

Ingredients: 

  • 2 pkgs of Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 3-4 cups of blueberries
  • 3 cups of white sugar
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 3-4 cups of keebler graham crack crust crumbs
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter melted

Prep: 10 mins. Cook time: 30 minutes. Let cheesecake cool off for 30 minutes before adding blueberry compote.
