Cheesecake with Fresh Blueberries

cheesecakeblueberriesmay2012.jpg

I remember the first time I had cheesecake. I was about 9 years old and my dad picked one up from the bakery.

I took my first bite and said, "I don't get what's so good about this?"

He sighed, said I was too young to appreciate it, and didn't offer me another slice until I was a teenager. lol

My kids have a different view on cheesecake. They happily ate every cake I worked on for the last two weeks to get this recipe right. It's great to have little helpers who will give their honest opinion about the food when I play in the kitchen.

This cheesecake is creamy, simple, and delicious. It doesn't taste exactly like traditional cheesecake but it's pretty close. I love my cheesecake with fresh fruit...especially blueberries.

If you try this recipe, let me know what you think.

What's your favorite cheesecake topping?
