Award Winning Blueberry Cheesecake


 This recipe is from my mother. It has won awards. My sister Susan entered it in her Girl Scout bake-off contest and it won first place!! Hey an award is an award. Although it was actually a cherry cheesecake, not blueberry. My son Jack loves blueberry topping so, we switched it up. But you still get a very rich and creamy cheesecake. The recipe is very interesting since you bake it for a short time at a high heat and then let it sit in the turned off oven for an hour an a half to set up Of course you can make your own graham cracker crust and put it in a spring form pan but I didn't want to be bothered with all of that. I instead opted for a  prepared graham cracker pie crust since it's faster and easier.



Ingredients:

1 lb. Philadelphia cream cheese (2 8 oz blocks)
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sour cream
1 prepared graham cracker pie crust
1 can of blueberry Comstock pie filling (original recipe made with Cherry)

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees (yes, 425). In a mixer blend all ingredients. Pour into crust. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn off heat and open oven door slightly. Let bake for an additional 1 1/2 hours. Cover top with Comstock pie filling of your choice. Refrigerate overnight (don't skip the refrigerating step.  It needs to fully chill to be set).

  4. I looked all over web for a cheesecake recipe. I must have had 12 recipes in front of me, when I decided to try your recipe -- it looks so simple, which is the way I love things. I followed your recipe to the letter, (loved, YES, 425 degrees) and each time they came out PERFECT! The first one I did I put apple Comstock on it, then Lemon Curd, then I tried it with blueberry Comstock and at Thanksgiving since my mother is a diabetic, I made her one with artificial sugar. So I have ONLY made this 4 times in the last month. I would say it's addicting....They all came out PERFECT!!!! I love this recipe. It's the only I will use from now on and I'm looking forward to trying your other recipes. Thank you so much.
