Blueberry Double Yum Cheesecake

Perfect for Christmas!

We drooled several weeks ago over the Blackberry Cheesecake recipe (see below) and I placed it at the top of my “to do recipe” list.  This is truly truly a double yum cheesecake. Pictured is my version of this cake.  We love blueberries so I substituted blueberries for the blackberries, vanilla wafer crust, added a layer of Savoiardi, blueberry liqueur, Crème Fraîche topping, blueberries and chocolate-covered blueberries, powdered sugar, sprinkles for garnish.  Oh, and a bit of “Tiramisu” as the secret ingredient.  It was so “beyond the yum” I am including it in the new cookbook.
