Life is good when you're eating this cheesecake! I could not find the lemon creme cookies anywhere, so I had to use vanilla creme instead. Even though I used a 9-inch springform pan, the filling really rose pretty high. I let it sit for a while to settle down before I added the sour cream topping, but the topping still overflowed the top during baking anyway. Still, there was plenty of topping to enjoy. I garnished with fresh blueberries for a cheesecake that looked as good as it tasted.
Mmmm! Delicious! You can't beat the lemon & blueberry combination & this recipe is no exception. I used all fresh blueberries in the mix and for garnish, but in the future I might make a blueberry sauce to drizzle over it as well. Super easy recipe, and I only had to make one adjustment. I knew I had two 8oz boxes of cream cheese in the fridge, so I only purchased one more. Then when I went to make the filling I opened the boxes only to find that DS had eaten at least 4 oz of one of the packages. :? I improvised by using the 20 ozs of cream cheese & only putting in 2 eggs instead of the 3. There were no ill-effects from doing this besides the fact that my filling didn't rise as far up the springform pan as I had put the crust. I ended up trimming off about a half inch of crust above the cheesecake before removing it from the pan. Thanks for posting, LIG! Made & enjoyed for ZWT-6 Team Xtra Hot Dishes! :D
I love blueberry and lemon flavors so knew this would be a big hit. Bought store brand lemon cream filled cookies and used a 9 inch springform pan. A very easy cheesecake to make that tastes amazing. Topped with some blueberry pie filling when serving and enjoyed! Made and reviewed for KK's Chef's Pick Tag Game.
ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS CHEESECAKE! The combo of lemon & blueberry was great, & being the lemon love that I am, I added a bit of lemon zest to the crust mix AND to the filling! Then, when serving, I left off the garnish, but topped it all with a small drizzle of another recipe I'd just made ~ Light Blueberry Sauce! Will certainly make this cheesecake again!

This is a very tasty cheesecake! I had a bit of trouble with it but I think that was due to the altitude (nothing bakes the same at 9,600 ft!) It didn't look very pretty when it first came out but the topping covered the ugliness and all the flavor was certainly there. I will definitely try to make this again. Thanks for posting!
