Here's something delicious and sweet to start the week, may it be as sweet as this cheesecake! Take a look:


Recipe by Sweet Caroline

Ingredients:
Cheesecake
2 (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ready graham cracker pie crust

Sauce
6 oz. blackberries
4 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
Juice and zest of a lemon

Directions:
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Using a mixer, beat the cream cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla extract together at a low/medium speed until completely smooth. Bake for 30 minutes. Let it cool completely and refrigerate. Meanwhile, in a saucepan oven medium/high heat, add the blackberries, sugar, cornstarch, juice and zest of a lemon. Stirring constantly until the blackberries break down a little (or smash the blackberries a little with the back of a wooden spoon) and it creates a slightly thick sauce. Remove from heat and reserve. Once the cheesecake is cold and ready to serve, spoon the blackberry sauce all over the cheesecake. Serve and enjoy!
