This week's Sweet Melissa's Sunday's recipe was the Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake with a Crumble Cornmeal Crust chosen by Eliana of a Chica Bakes.
I decided to make these into mini versions of it because I like mini versions of cake and cheesecake. My friend Andrea is leaving for Spain, well she left. The dinner before her leaving was Friday night and I decided to make these cheesecakes.
I made these without mascarpone cheese either. I didn't have the time to go to either Whole Foods or Berkeley Bowl with all the summer school, so instead I decided to look for a mascarpone cheese substitute. I found a recipe of Allrecipes that was one. I'm sure it doesn't taste exactly the same, but it was a lot cheaper to do it this way especially time wise.
I also decided not to make it a Cornmeal crust since I don't have cornmeal, but I did have extra graham cracker crumbs from making my s'mores bars. I made a graham cracker crust for the bottom. I ended up make 50 (!) mini cheesecakes and brought almost all of them to the party. Everyone basically loved it. =]
Make sure to check out the other bakers at the Sweet Melissa Sunday's website.
Like the new signature and blog front? I decided to change it up a little bit!
