Two posts in one day (One-Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes with Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting), I know, pretty silly, but I couldn’t help but share this recipe for Blueberry Cheesecake Pots that I just made.  It took me all of about 20 minutes to make this incredible dessert.

The farmer’s market had beautiful, plump and juicy blueberries that I just couldn’t pass by.  This was the perfect recipe to showcase the berries.  I did add a little creme de cassis to the berries, it provides such a nice compliment to the blueberries and it also adds a little extra sweetness.

The use of mascarpone, Italian triple-cream cheese that is rich and very creamy, was a nice change to the usual cream cheese.  The lemon zest and juice added such a fresh flavour to the mascarpone.  I love taste testing along the way.

Believe it or not, my son, Matt has been chomping at the bit to eat one of these desserts. Normally the only cheesecake he will eat is my no bake cheesecake with cherry topping.

I wonder if this recipe will be good enough to help him keep an open mind when it comes to cheesecake and all the different ways it can be prepared and enjoyed.

I’m looking forward to trying this recipe using all the different berries that are in season right now.  I’m thinking strawberries macerated in sugar and balsamic vinegar could be a winner of a dish.  What do you think?

    You describe these desserts so well that there is often no need for photos, although they look gorgeous. Can I request you make a traditional Scottish Haggis dish?

  2. Grace Says:

    I would really like to oblige but after reading your post, and now knowing what it is, I just don’t think I could do it. Any other request? Have you ever made it? Most importantly do you like it?

    Grace, I love this dessert, especially the colors of the berries. I want to grab a spoon and begin scooping this into my mouth. :)

    Absolutely beautiful- Now I just need to find digestive biscuits! Thanks for sharing such a delicious dessert.

  8. Grace Says:

    Thanks Betty, you should be able to find them at the grocery store but if not you can use any type of cookie, maybe amaretti cookies or biscotti, graham crackers or tea social biscuits.

    Thank you so much for sharing this simple fantastic recipe. i just stumbled upon your site for the first time tonight through dessertstalking.com and have been enticed by all your photos and stories. i can’t wait to try this out since cheesecake is my absolute favorite dessert of all time! do you have any suggestions for raspberries? Thank you again!!! I can’t wait to make these

    Thank you Bambi, yum, I love raspberries, especially now since they are in season. I have a few recipes on the site, Panna Cotta with Raspberry Jelly, Raspberry, Blueberry, Cream Cheese & Mascarpone Pound Cakes (so delicious), there’s also a Pavlova recipe that you could decorate with raspberries. I just picked up a flat at the fruit farm, so I will probably make something special in the next few days. Happy to hear you are enjoying.
