I'm always quick to give my mom credit for this lovely dessert recipe when people compliment me on it. The fruit topping makes each slice so attractive, and you can detect a hint of citrus in the creamy light-texture filling. —Christine Wilson Sellersville, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW

"This is the perfect cheesecake! The light citrus-y taste coupled with the blueberries made this cheesecake the BEST! I made this cheesecake for my hubby's birthday 5 years ago because he hates traditional cakes. He's asked for it every year since."
