Reviews for Blueberry Orange Cheesecake
"Always a winner. Lighter than the usual cheesecakeCottage cheese makes it lighter. I use extra orange zest & oJ concentrate to make it more flavorful. Some folks don't like sour cream topping. Taste it before topping...A bit sweet."
"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."
