Happy National Cheesecake Day!

      Comments Off on Happy National Cheesecake Day!

I have one of those funky calendars that has weird holidays listed on it. It says that July 30 is National Cheesecake Day.

I wonder if that is official? Or do we need a reason?

I dug up this scrumptious Blueberry & White Chocolate Cheesecake recipe for you – 

1 cup roasted ground hazelnuts

½ cup brown sugar

4 Tablespoons melted butter

4 ounces white chocolate, finely grated

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

¼ cup sour cream

2 cups fresh blueberries

¼ cup sugar

White chocolate shavings

Line bottom of a 9 inch tart pan with parchment paper.

Mix hazelnuts, brown sugar and melted butter.

Press into bottom of pan, and a little up the side.

Melt white chocolate until melted and smooth, stirring often.

Whip cream cheese for about 3 minutes.

Add the melted white chocolate, beat for another minute.

Add sour cream. Beat until very smooth.

Pour into prepared crust.

Chill until firm.

Toss clean blueberries with ¼ cup sugar.

Heap on top of cheesecake.

Garnish with White Chocolate shavings if desired.

In a real hurry? Use a prepared vanilla cookie crust. Or even a chocolate one!
