Topping (you can also use canned blueberry topping)

  • Add sugar and mix until smooth.

  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating the mixture smooth after each. Make sure you scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl after each egg then add the vanilla .

  • Mix in the sour cream and heavy cream and stir until smooth. Then add the cornstarch and mix really well.

  • Pour the batter on top of the crust in the pan and bake at 325 for 60 minutes.

  • The middle should still be a little jiggly, but the sides should be set. Crack open the oven door a little bit and turn the oven off and let the cheesecake cool in the oven for an hour.

  • Then take the cheesecake out, and let it sit at room temperature for 45 minutes to continue cooling.

  • You can refrigerate it for 5 hours or over night.

  • To make the topping combine the blueberries with the 1/4 c. of water and bring to a boil in a small saucepan. Once it is boiling mix the cornstarch with the 1 T of water and add it to the blueberries to thicken them up. Let the berries cool for 10 minutes before putting on top of the cake. Or just add any canned blueberry topping!
