Equipment

  • mixing bowl
  • 9-inch springform pan
  • serving dish

Ingredients

For the crust

  • 1 CUP graham cracker crumbs
  • ¼ CUP melted butter
  • ¼ CUP sugar

For the filling

  • 8 ounce package of cream cheese
  • 1 CUP Sugar
  • 2 large Egg
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 12 ounce package of frozen blueberries

For the topping:

  • ½ cup Sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • ¼ cup black food coloring
  • ¼ cup water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch springform pan with butter and set aside. To make the crust, mix together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar in a bowl until it forms a thick paste.
    Press the mixture into the greased pan and bake for 8 minutes. Let cool completely before adding the filling.
  • To make the filling, beat cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in sour cream and vanilla extract until combined.
  • Pour mixture into cooled crust and spread evenly. Top with frozen blueberries. Bake for 40 minutes or until the edges of the cheesecake are golden brown.
    Let cool completely before adding the topping.
  • To make the topping, mix together sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add food coloring and water and stir until combined. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened.
    Spoon topping over cheesecake and let cool completely before serving.

Notes

  • Be sure to use a 9-inch springform pan when making this cheesecake. This will help ensure an even cook time and create a perfectly cooked crust.
  • Allow the cheesecake to cool completely before adding the topping. If the cheesecake is still warm, it can cause the topping to melt off.
  • Serve gothic blueberry cheesecake chilled. This will help to keep the topping intact and ensure that all the flavors are at their best.
  • For an extra gothic touch, you can add a black chocolate drizzle over top of the blueberry topping.
