24 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Zest of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Ingredients for Blueberry Topping:

1 cup fresh blueberries
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
Zest of 1 lemon


Preheat the oven to 325ยฐF (160ยฐC). Grease a 9-inch springform pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Stir in sour cream, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla extract until fully combined.
Pour the cheesecake filling over the crust in the pan.
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the edges are set and the center is slightly jiggly.
Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake inside with the door closed for 1 hour.
Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool completely before refrigerating for at least 4 hours or overnight.
In a small saucepan, combine blueberries, sugar, water, and lemon zest. Cook over medium heat until the blueberries burst and the mixture thickens, about 10-12 minutes.
Allow the blueberry topping to cool before spreading it over the chilled cheesecake.
Slice and serve chilled. Enjoy!
