    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min. + chilling
  • Makes
    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen blueberries, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • CRUST:
  • 1-1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • FILLING:
  • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Directions

  • In a food processor, process the blueberries, sugar, water and cornstarch until blended. Transfer to a heavy saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir over medium heat for 2 minutes or until thickened. Set aside 1/3 cup for filling. Refrigerate remaining sauce for topping.
  • Combine crust ingredients. Press onto the bottom of a greased 9-in. springform pan; set aside. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and milk until smooth; beat in lemon juice. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour half of the filling over crust; top with half of the reserved blueberry mixture. Repeat layers. Cut through filling with a knife to swirl. Place pan on a baking sheet.
  • Bake at 325° for 40-45 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around the edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight. Remove sides of pan. Serve with blueberry sauce.

    Very good. I just wish TofH would stop changing the names of recipes once they have been published in its cookbooks. It makes it difficult to find recipes to check reviews and tips.
