  3. ¼ cup almonds, lightly toasted and chopped
  4. 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar

  1. 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  2. 4 ounces mascarpone cheese, softened
  3. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  4. 2 teaspoons lemon zest, finely grated
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 2/3 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
  7. 2/3 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (thaw and drain, if using frozen blueberries)

  1. 2 cups fresh blueberries
  2. 1/3 cup water
  3. ¼ cup granulated white sugar
  4. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  5. 1 teaspoon lemon zest, finely grated
  6. 2 tablespoons rum or brandy
  7. confectioners' sugar, sifted (for dusting)
Instructions
  1. Line muffin cups or pans with decorative baking paper. Lightly coat with vegetable spray. Set aside.
Base
  1. Combine together crushed vanilla wafers, melted butter, chopped almonds and sugar in a food processor. Pulse for 1 to 2 minutes or until combined. Stir and pulse for another minute. Press mixture into the bottoms of lined muffin cups. Chill for at least 1 hour or until set.
Cheesecake Layer
  1. Beat cream cheese until smooth, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add mascarpone and continue beating for another 3 minutes, scraping the sides of bowl as needed.
  2. Stir together lemon juice, zest and vanilla extract. Alternately beat into cream cheese mixture with confectioners’ sugar in batches. Beat well after each addition.
  3. Puree blueberries and fold into cream cheese mixture.
  4. Spoon cream cheese mixture over chilled base, about ¾ full. Smoothen top with the back of a spoon. Chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Blueberry Topping
  1. Combine together blueberries, water, sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan. Set aside for 10 to 15 minutes to macerate blueberries. Set pan over medium heat and simmer blueberries. Reduce heat to low and stir in lemon zest and rum or brandy. Cook, while stirring continuously, for another 2 to 3 minutes or until thick. Remove pan from heat and allow sauce to cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
Assembly
  1. Once ready to serve, allow cheesecakes to thaw for about 30 minutes. Spoon blueberry sauce on top of each and dust with confectioners’ sugar. Arrange on a tray server immediately.
Notes
  1. If desired, replace cooked blueberry sauce with canned blueberry pie filling or topping.
