Frozen Blueberry Cheesecake
Frozen blueberry cheesecake is perfect to cool you off on a hot summer evening.
3/4 c. graham cracker crumbs
2 tbsp. sugar
3 tbsp. butter, melted
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. water
1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
3 egg whites
2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese
1/2 c. dairy sour cream
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. grated lemon rind
1/2 c. blueberry preserves
Fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries
Combine crumbs, sugar and butter in a small bowl and blend well. Press firmly over the bottom of an 8-inch spring form pan. Chill. Combine sugar, water and cream of tartar in a small saucepan; bring to boiling. Boil rapidly, 8 to 10 minutes, or until syrup registers 236 degrees on a candy thermometer (or until from spoon).
Meanwhile, in large bowl of electric mixer beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Pour hot syrup in a thin stream over egg whites while beating constantly. Continue beating until very stiff peaks form and mixture cools, all together about 15 minutes. Beat cream cheese and sour cream until light and fluffy, beat in vanilla and lemon rind. Add 1/4 of meringue to cheese mixture, stir to combine well. Fold remaining meringue into cheese mixture until no streaks of meringue and cheese remain.
Spoon about 1/4 of cheese mixture into prepared pan, drizzle part of blueberry preserves over. Continue to layer cheese mixture and preserves this way creating a marbled effect. Freeze overnight or until firm.
Decorate with whipped cream and fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries. (Raspberries or strawberries may be substituted for blueberries.) 12 servings.
