for the filling-

for the blueberry compote-

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Lightly grease individual cheesecake pans with non stick cooking spray and set aside. {My pans were 4 x 1 1/4 inches}.
  • In a small bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter together until thoroughly moistened. Divide evenly among the cheesecake pans and press into the bottom and up the sides about 1/2 inch.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whip cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk together until combined. {If the cream cheese isn't at room temperature, you will have lumps! Beware!} Scrape sides and mix again to ensure the mixture is smooth. With the mixer on low, stir in granulated sugar, eggs {one at a time}, vanilla extract, lemon zest and lemon juice. Scrape sides and mix again.
  • Spoon cheesecake filling evenly into prepared crusts and smooth the tops. Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until filling has set. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Transfer to refrigerator to chill completely.
  • In the meantime, stir blueberries, lemon juice and sugar together in a small pot. Place on high heat and stir about 2 minutes or until sugar crystals dissolve and a purple sauce has formed. Remove from heat and store in an air tight container until ready to serve.
  • To serve, unlatch sides of cheesecake pans and remove. If desired, remove bottoms as well. Place onto plates and top with blueberry compote.
