Recipe: Blueberry White Chocolate Cheesecake

I adore the Wild Blueberry White Chocolate Cheesecake from Cheesecake factory and this is my attempt to knock it off. I haven’t had the real version for at least a month so I’m not sure how close it is but I think this is pretty yummy and close. It’s got a graham cracker crust, luscious cheesecake swirled with whole blueberries, and it’s topped with mousse and white chocolate shavings. And if that’s not enough I highly recommend serving it with whipped cream.

For the Crust
1 1/2 (about 1.5 C) packs of graham crackers (crushed)
1/3 C Margarine (melted)

For Cheesecake
3-8 oz pkgs Cream Cheese (room temp)
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 C Sugar
3 Eggs
3 Tbls Lemon Juice
1 Tbl Vanilla
1 C Frozen Blueberries
1/4 C Sugar
1 tsp Cornstarch

(if you want it to be good you MUST wait for the cream cheese and eggs to come to room temp. don’t bother using light or fake cream cheese unless you have high quality artisan cream cheese use Philadelphia cream cheese the taste is worth the extra fat, cost, and time)

For the Mousse
1-8 oz pkg Cream Cheese (room temp)
1-8oz pkg Cool Whip (Thawed)
1/4 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 squares almond bark or white chocolate thawed.

The Steps
  • Cook blueberries, 1/4C sugar and cornstarch until thick. Cool
  • Break up the graham crackers (I like to stick them in a ziplock and mush).
  • Melt the butter and mix with the graham cracker crumbs. Press them into a springform pan.
  • Beat the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk until smooth.
  • Add sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice until well combined.
  • Add eggs one by one until combined.
  • Pour half of mixture into springform pan.
  • Add blueberry mixture and top with remaining cheesecake mixture.
  • Swirl with a knife being careful not to touch the bottom crust.
  • Bake in at 300F with steam for 1 hour and 15 minutes (until outside is set but inside is still jiggly). Heat a dish while preheating the oven and pour hot water in the dish when you stick the cheesecake in.
  • Let cool in the oven with door closed for at least 2 hours
  • Mix remaining pack of cream cheese, vanilla and sugar. Whip in cool whip to form the mousse.
  • Using a potato peeler make white chocolate curls.
  • Spread mousse over cooled cheesecake and top with chocolate shavings.
  • Refrigerate for at least 4 hours I think overnight is best, the texture and taste are much better when it’s colder
  • Cut with a knife rinsed with hot water between each slice

You can put whipped cream on the cake but I regretted doing that because I thought it looked way prettier without it. So next time I’d just have it on the side. There are a lot of steps but it’s all pretty easy and way cheaper than paying 7$ a slice at cheesecake factory. Plus it looks so stinking impressive.

What flavor cheesecake should I try next?

    I made this for my mother’s birthday and it was insanely delicious. SOOOOO good- thank you so much for this recipe- everyone loved it and I’ll never make cheesecake any other way.

    • oh I love hearing that! I’m so glad you guys liked it. I am such a big fan of making cheesecake this way it’s been so reliable for me :)

  30. I baked it and it was HEAVENLY! everyone went “pleasantly” crazy hehe :))))
    For the topping I only put the mousse with white chocolate shredding, I preferred not to decorate it with whipped cream and it turned out to be amazing :)

  31. Is it Vanilla EXTRACT? I sure hope so! Making it in now!

  32. I made this awhile back and it was TO.DIE.FOR!!! My question: I’m headed to the beach with several couples and we are each responsible for one nights meal. I would love to serve this however do not want to be in the kitchen making this while losing time on the beach! Do you think it would freeze well so that I could make it the week before?

    • oh yay I love hearing that. I have frozen the cheesecake before but it’s been so long that my memory is fuzzy. I remember thinking it worked though. Definitely yummy enough and way better than wasting beach time in the kitchen! Have so much fun

  33. My sister and I made this and it was AMAZING- the family had it finished off in 2 days!
