The Perfect Blueberry Cheesecake

Is there anything better than a Blueberry Cheesecake made completely by scratch with a graham cracker crust and blueberries dripping down the side? Really, there isn’t!

This recipe has always been my go to recipe for get togethers and parties because it is so easy to serve and is definitely a crowd pleaser. This cheesecake will make a perfect addition to any BBQ or gathering especially during the summer when people are looking for a cold desert to cool them off. Most people who dislike cheesecake do not like the taste because it is too thick and overwhelming; however, this recipe has the perfect crust to cheesecake ratio that will leave you desperate for more.
