Tall and Creamy Cheesecake Topped with Fresh Blueberries and Raspberries-Tuesdays with Dorie

I would have loved to play around with this yummy cheesecake if I had more time. With my family visiting, I knew if I was going to get this cheesecake made, I’d have to get up early to prepare it so it will have time to bake for the hour and a half, plus “luxuriate” in the water bath, cool to room temperature and refrigerate before we all went out for the day. However, I misjudged just exactly how long this process would take and our plans had to be altered so I almost regret making it. Apparently, I didn’t read Dorie’s caveat”Never rush a cheesecake to the table”. Despite my breakneck speed in making the cheesecake, it made it to the refrigerator and we were able to enjoy a nice picnic and trail walk at Skidaway State Park near Savannah. Anne over at AnneStrawberry choice was a good one for a crowd during the holidays. You can find the recipe with some creative twists on her blog and as always, check out the TWD blogroll for other variations of this decadently rich cheesecake.

    Well, I am jealous of your cheesecake, which looks super, and I think even more jealous that you were able to have a picnic. That’s what I get for living in the tundra! Great job.

    I say plain cheesecake with fruit is a mighty fine treat. Great work.
