Steps

  2. Crush the biscuits until fine. Melt the butter and add to the biscuits, processing until combined
  3. Press the biscuit mixture firmly into the lined pan and refrigerate for 30 minutes
  4. Meanwhile, soften the cream cheese then beat with the sugar and finely grated lime rind until smooth and combined.
  5. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then beat in the sour cream and lime juice.
  6. Pour the mixture over the base and sprinkle evenly with the blueberries and drizzle over the passionfruit pulp. Bake for 35 minutes, or until set

It does take some forward planning to make this blueberry passionfruit cheesecake slice but your actual hands-on time is pretty low. It keeps well for a few days in the fridge which makes it perfect for parties as the hard work is done in advance.

I love the bursts of sweetness from the blueberries which help to cut through the creamy cheesecake. I used fresh blueberries which hold their shape a little better, so maybe aren’t quite as pretty. Given they’re so abundant and cheap at the moment it seemed silly not to use them though!
