I made this for a company potluck. The crust was soggy from the blueberries and the cheesecake filling wasn't very creamy. I did like the flavor of the crust (that did not absorb the blueberry liquid) and will use this portion of the recipe again.

What a great cheesecake! This recipe isn't for the inexperienced. It is time consuming but very much worth it. I made Penne Pasta with Vodka sauce by meow and served this as my dessert.
