I have made this many times over the years. It's always a hit and there is never a crumb leftover.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

The flavors of fresh blueberries and lemon adorn this silky smooth cheesecake. It's cooked low and slow as not to overcook the blueberries. The cream cheese filling is a perfectly soft and smooth texture. An elegant springtime dessert, the cheesecake alone is delicious. To make this cheesecake even prettier, we spread a blueberry glaze on top and added additional fresh blueberries. However you decide to serve it, this creamy cheesecake recipe is fantastic.
