Blueberry Crumble Cheesecake

CRUMBLE / CRUST
1 and 1/2 cups (200 g) flour
6 tbsp (80 g) sugar
1/2 tsp (1/2 càc) cinnamon
3/4 cup (175 g) butter

FILLING
32 oz / 900 g Philadelphia Cream Cheese / Homemade Soft Cheese
1 cup (200 g) sugar
2 tsp (càc) vanilla
6 eggs
1 tub (16 oz / 50 cl) crème fraîche or sour cream

GARNISH
2 cups (250 g) fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C)

CRUMBLE CRUST
Mix flour, 6 tbsp sugar and cinnamon. Cut in cold butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Save 1/2 cup for the crumble topping. Press remaining crumbs firmly onto bottom of pan. Bake 25 minutes or until the edge is lightly browned.

FILLING
Beat cream cheese, 1 cup sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs and sour cream, beating after each addition. Pour over baked crumble crust.

Bake the first 15 minutes at the preheated temp then add the topping. *Reduce heat to 275°F (135°C)

TOPPING
Top with blueberries and sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. This process of prebaking your cheesecake filling will create a skin layer on top of your cheesecake so that your fruit and crumble will not sink to the bottom during the cooking process.

Bake the first 15 minutes at the preheated temperature then *Reduce heat to 200°F (93°C)

Bake an additional hour and a half at the reduced setting. Turn off the oven.

COOLING
Run a knife around the inside edge of the pan to separate the cake from the pan. Pop the cake back in the hot oven for another hour allowing it to cool as slowly as possible to avoid cracking. When the cheesecake has cooled completely you can transfer it to the refrigerator. Wait twenty-four hours before serving it to allow the flavors to develop.

Bon Appétit.

    I made this Blueberry Crumble Cheesecake for the first time
    for a Chili Cook Off and Auction.

    It sold for $200 to a very happy couple.

    Thank you Nichole for great directions!

    • Congratulations! I’m thrilled for you and for your fundraiser. That makes this my biggest earning recipe yet. It’s so pretty with the crumble finish. Every time I see this photo pop up on my blog’s header I’ll be thinking of you and grinning from ear to ear.
