Recipe Ingredients for Ricotta Cheesecake with Warm Blueberries

8 oz. graham crackers, crushed
6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
12 oz. part-skim ricotta, drained
16 oz. light cream cheese, softened
14 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 tbsp lemon juice
3 eggs
16 oz. frozen blueberries

Recipe Directions for Ricotta Cheesecake with Warm Blueberries

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cover the outside of a 9" springform pan with a layer of aluminum foil.

  2. Grind the graham crackers in a food processor. Add melted butter and whiz again for a few seconds. Pour crumb mixture over the bottom of the pan and press firmly into pan. Bake about 15 minutes, until crust is a deep brown shade.

  3. Blend the ricotta, cream cheese, 3/4 cup of sugar and lemon zest in the (clean) food processor until smooth, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the eggs and pulse just until blended.

  4. Pour the cheese mixture over the crust in the pan. Place the springform pan in a baking dish. Pour enough hot water onto the dish to come halfway up the sides of the springform pan.

  5. Bake until the cheesecake is golden and the center of the cake moves slightly when the pan is gently shaken, about 1 hour. Cool for an hour on the counter, then refrigerate until the cheesecake is cold, at least 4 hours.

  6. When the cheesecake is ready to be cut, combine the blueberries, lemon juice, and 2 tbsp sugar in a saucepan. Simmer 5-7 minutes, until the blueberries begin to pop and become syrupy. Cut the cake into wedges and serve with a generous scoop of the blueberries over the top.
