Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake

“A perfect flavour combination ....... a creamy, velvety texture ......... delicious! When I saw the photo in the Company's Coming - Baking - Simple To Sensational, I just had to buy the book. This recipe alone made me glad that I bought it! I forgot to keep track of my prep time (so I've estimated) but due to the standing time, its best to make this a day in advance.”

  4. Bake in preheated 325F oven for 1 to 1/1/4 hours until centre is almost set.
  5. Run a knife around the inside edge of the pan to allow the cheesecake to settle evenly; let stand in the pan on a wire rack until completely cooled.
  6. TOPPING: Combine berries & sugar in a heavy saucepan; heat & stir on medium for 5 to 7 minutes to dissolve sugar.
  7. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for another 5 minutes to release juice from the berries.
