Cheesecake Tart with Blueberries

55 / 100

Necessity is the mother of invention – this saying yet again proved itself, when it came to this recipe. One day I had some quark (cottage cheese) and some blueberries left and I was thinking how I could use them. The easiest solution – cheesecake – wouldn’t have worked as I didn’t have enough of the cheese so a seemed to be a better answer. Sadly, the outcome wasn’t as good as I expected because I found the filling of the too grainy.

But a few days later I wanted to give this concept another chance and used cream cheese instead of the quark. This time the result was heavenly: a scrumptious with melt-in-your-mouth filling that tasted a bit like New York cheesecake but with a bonus – juicy blueberries bursting in your mouth with every bite of this .
