  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Cheesecake Filling:

  • 3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

For the Blueberry Topping:

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water

For the Berry Coulis:

  • 1 cup mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Instructions:

1. Prepare the Crust:

  • Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C).
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter.
  • Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan to create the crust.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and let it cool while you prepare the filling.

2. Make the Cheesecake Filling:

  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  • Add in the sugar and continue to beat until well combined.
  • Mix in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract, sour cream, and heavy cream until the filling is smooth.
  • Pour the filling over the cooled crust.

3. Bake the Cheesecake:

  • Place the springform pan on a baking sheet to catch any potential leaks.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 50-55 minutes, or until the edges are set, and the center still has a slight jiggle.
  • Turn off the oven, crack the oven door, and let the cheesecake cool for an hour in the oven.
  • Remove it from the oven and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight, to set.

4. Prepare the Blueberry Topping:

  • In a saucepan, combine fresh blueberries, sugar, water, and lemon juice.
  • Bring the mixture to a gentle boil and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the cornstarch-water mixture and continue to cook until the sauce thickens.
  • Remove from heat and let it cool completely.

5. Make the Berry Coulis:

  • In another saucepan, combine mixed berries, sugar, water, and lemon juice.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5-7 minutes until the berries break down and the sauce thickens.
  • Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any seeds.

6. Assemble and Serve:

  • Carefully remove the cheesecake from the springform pan and place it on a serving platter.
  • Spoon the blueberry topping over the cheesecake, spreading it evenly.
  • Drizzle the berry coulis over the blueberry topping for an extra burst of flavor.
  • Slice and serve your delicious Blueberry Cheesecake with Berry Coulis.
