Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust

  • 2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter melted

Filling

  • 32 ounces cream cheese (4 packages)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

Garnish

  • whipped cream
  • fresh blueberries

Instructions

  • Get the eggs, cream cheese and butter out to start bringing to room temperature before preparing the cheesecake. 
  • Heat oven to 325 degrees. 
  • Place graham crackers in food processor to turn into crumb. Add in 1/3 cup of the sugar and the melted butter. 
  • Press the graham cracker crumb mixture into the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch pan. Press the mix down with a flat surface ( I use the bottom of a measuring cup) so it is even and will hold together after cooking. I line my pan with parchment paper so you can easily remove the entire cheesecake for serving. 
  • Bake the crust for 10 minutes. Then set to the side to cool. 
  • Use a hand or stand mixer to beat the cream cheese. Add 1 cup of sugar and beat until creamy and smooth. Add vanilla extract and sour cream. Beat again. Add in one egg at a time. Blend and then pour over the crust. 
  • Purée the blueberries in food processor. Use a spoon to drop the purée on the top of the cheesecake. Use a knife to cut into the batter and create a marble effect. 
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until the center is almost set. 
  • Cool and then chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours- overnight. 
  • Cut into 16 equal pieces. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream on top and more fresh blueberries.
