FROZEN LEMON CHEESECAKE WITH FRESH BLUEBERRY TOPPING — A cool, refreshing lemon cheesecake smothered in a homemade blueberry sauce.
There are so many things I love about this recipe. The creamy, cool cheesecake has just the right amount of sweetness, with a hint of tart lemon. And the fresh blueberry sauce is the perfect accompaniment!
The cheesecake and sauce are both delicious on their own, but together, they’re a match made in heaven!
Best of all, this dessert couldn’t be any easier to make. I love simple desserts that can be made ahead, and since this cheesecake goes into the freezer, it can be made weeks in advance.
The blueberry sauce can also be made several days ahead and kept in the refrigerator.
Of course, you don’t have to limit yourself to blueberry sauce. This cheesecake would be great with other berries too.
Just remember, you do need to let the cake sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before serving. The longer it’s been in the freezer, the longer you’ll have to let it sit.
