Lemon Cheesecake with Blueberry Topping
 
 
Ingredients
For the cheesecake:
  • 15 graham crackers, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 4 (8oz) packages cream cheese
  • 1.5 cups white sugar or cane sugar
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • the zest from 2 lemons
  • the juice from 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
For the blueberry topping
  • 3 cups frozen blueberries
  • 6 heaping tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • the juice of 1 lemon
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9-10 inch springform pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. Press onto bottom of springform pan.
  4. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in heavy cream, and then mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate. Mix in sour cream, vanilla, lemon zest, lemon juice, and flour until smooth. Pour filling into prepared crust.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Place a large pan of water on the rack below the cheesecake. Remove the cake & run a knife alongside the edge to loosen the cheesecake from the pan. Return to the oven, that should still be on & heated to 350. Turn the oven off, and let cake cool in oven with the door closed for about 5 hours or overnight. This helps prevents cracking. Chill in refrigerator,
  6. In a small saucepan, combine the blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, & lemon juice. Cook on medium heat for 7-10 minutes, or until thickened slightly. Remove from heat & transfer to a heat proof container. Cover & refrigerate until completely cooled.
  7. Once both components are completely chilled, spread the blueberry topping on top of the cheesecake. Store in the refrigerator.
