It's been a couple months since I posted a cheesecake even though cheesecake is one of my favorite "food groups". What??? It's not a food group? Well, it should be!

Perfect for spring and summer, this dessert has the best of both worlds - a delish berry pie layer covered by a silky cheesecake layer.

I hope you give it a try and serve to your family and friends.
