Blueberry Mini Cheesecakes
Cheesecake is one of those fresh desserts that we’re eating all year round. It’s perfectly balanced in its creamy decadence without going overboard on heavy, rich flavors (because there is certainly such a thing as too much chocolate). This recipe makes the most of fresh summer berries, accentuating the blueberry flavor with bright lemon zest. But the recipe can be easily altered—feel free to stick to the script and use fresh blueberries or change it up with your favorite seasonal fruit. In the winter, might we suggest a honey-and-fig variation? Perhaps a gingerbread crust? The possibilities are endless.We think Blanche, Dorothy, Rose, and Sophia would be mighty big fans of these individually portioned blueberry cheesecakes. Make these cheesecakes in advance and chill overnight for a hassle-free hosting hack. All you need to do the day of is whip up a batch of fresh whipped cream! Your guests will be charmed by these delicate miniatures—and they look much more complicated than they actually are.
