Blueberry Lemon Goat Cheese Cheesecake

Looking for an unforgettable Easter dessert? This cheesecake recipe comes from my dear friend (and fellow Le Cordon Bleu graduate) Chef Jamie Colboth.  If you’ve never baked anything in your life, this is a GREAT recipe to get you started.  And for the more experienced baker, you may end up throwing out every other cheesecake recipe you own!  So easy and quick and the final product is not only beautiful but it’s also out-of-this-world in flavor.

See for yourself!  Jamie recently joined me in the kitchen for an episode of “Sugared” to make her cheesecake!  You can follow the recipe with us here step-by-step.

Blueberry Lemon Goat Cheese Cheesecake

Servings: 8

Ingredients:

12 ounces cream cheese-softened

12 ounces goat cheese-softened

1 cup sugar

1 cup sour cream

the zest and juice of one lemon

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 large eggs

1 basket fresh blueberries

*1 graham cracker crust pie shell (see recipe below or you can use a store bought shell)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Using a mixer with a paddle attachment or a hand mixer, beat cream cheese, goat cheese and sugar on medium speed until it is free from lumps

Add sour cream, lemon juice and vanilla to same mixing bowl and beat on medium speed just until combined

Switch mixing speed to low and add eggs one at a time and mix just until combined.

In graham cracker pie shell pour a single layer of blueberries in the bottom of the crust (you may not use the entire basket)

Pour cheesecake filling into the crust on top of the blueberries.

Bake cheesecake for about 40-50 until set (give cake a jiggle- if the center stays put then it’s done)

Cool cheesecake on a wire rack, cut and serve

2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 stick unsalted butter- melted

In a medium to large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and brown sugar.

    I’m not normally a cheesecake fan, but I like the goat cheese twist! Again, this just makes me upset that I don’t live near you to sample. 🙂

    Great shows, Jess. Keep rockin ’em!
