Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, chilled
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups homemade yogurt cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon

Sauce

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • To make crust: Mix together flour and powdered sugar. Cut in butter with a fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into a 9-by-9-inch baking pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • To make filling: Combine whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl, and beat with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.
  • In a separate bowl, beat yogurt cheese, lemon juice, and zest until smooth. Gently fold in whipped cream mixture until just combined.
  • Spread filling over cooled crust in an even layer. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  • To make sauce: Combine water, sugar, and cornstarch in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then add blueberries and lemon juice and continue simmering, stirring frequently, for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla.
  • Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • To serve, top each portion of cheesecake with a spoonful of blueberry sauce.
