A Creation of

Shelly of  Cookie and Cups had a decadent Harry & David cheesecake delivered and whipped up a blueberry mousse to top it off. She shared the recipe with us just in time for National Cheesecake Day, July 30.

I love cheesecake. It’s basically my favorite food group.

There have been times that I have eaten cheesecake for breakfast, lunch and dinner until it’s gone out of my house. I can’t be trusted for sure. I am not proud.

The thing is, I am NOT an expert cheesecake maker. Nope, not by any means…especially a perfect, creamy, New York Style Cheesecake. Most of my attempts at cheesecake have been hiding all the imperfections with loads of candy, caramel drizzles or piles of fruit.

Luckily for me, I was fortunate enough to spend a few days out in Oregon last year with my friends at Harry & David…and you know what? They make a mean cheesecake. Not kidding.

Unfortunately I don’t have a Harry & David store close to me…which, now that I think about it, is actually a blessing in disguise. My hips would never be the same, I’m afraid. BUT on the flip side, Harry & David ships beautiful cheesecakes right to your doorstep. Yep, order a cheesecake online and it will be in your hot little hands in days.

Evil genius I tell you!

And all that brings me to today. I just got a cheesecake delivery. What to do? What to do?

I could eat it plain…I mean look at the graham cracker crust!

Yes, absolutely I could eat it plain and it would be fantastic!

ORRRRR.

I could grab out some hot fudge and pile a load of Harry & David Signature Truffles on top!

Oh my word, can you even imagine how gorgeous that would be?

But today I realized I had a container of beautiful blueberries sitting on my counter.

So why not put them to use to turn my gorgeous cheesecake into something extra special!?

I simply mixed some cream cheese and sugar with a homemade blueberry puree and folded in some whipped cream to make it light and fluffy…
