My husband is crazy about cheesecake, but he isn’t so keen on fruit. However, when I made him this blueberry cheesecake dessert the other night he was gobbling it up like it was his last supper! He said that the berries were very sweet and paired well with the cream cheese filling. I thought the cake turned out pretty well, myself. Enjoy!
Check out what my friend Hannah had to say about this recipe:

Hannah speaks the truth. This is by far the BEST blueberry cheesecake recipe that I’ve ever come across.
For the crust:
2 cups shortbread crumbs (about 20 to 25 shortbread cookies finely crushed)
6 Tbsp. Kerrygold unsalted butter, melted
Generously butter a 9-inch springform pan.
Combine the shortbread crumbs and the butter in a bowl and mix well.
Pack the crumbs into the pan, making sure to spread them about a quarter of the way up the sides of the pan.
Place the crust in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
For the filling:
