Blueberry Orange Cheesecake Recipe
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
