Topping

  • 2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  3. Press crust into bottom of 10-inch springform pan. Place in preheated oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the crust begins to brown.
  4. Reduce oven to 350°F.
  5. Prepare the first cheesecake layer: In a clean blender combine crumbled cream cheese, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 c. sugar, and 4 room temperature eggs. Blend until smooth. Pour over macadamia crust.
  6. Prepare the second cheesecake layer: In a clean blender, combine sour cream, sugar, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract. Spread second layer over the first layer. Place in oven and bake at 350°F for 5 minutes. Let cool.
  7. Finally, prepare blueberry topping. In a small, shallow bowl, combine 1 tbsp. cornstarch and 3 tbsp. cold water; stir until a thick paste forms. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, scoop paste into pan using a rubber spatula, add in blueberries and stir. Cook until the blueberry mixture forms into a thick topping. Remove from heat and let cool.
  8. When cool, spread blueberry topping over cooled second layer. Place in refrigerator and let cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, then store in refrigerator until ready to serve. Slice and serve chilled.
