Food and Recipes: April 2012 Archives

So I've had ~300g of blueberries in the freezer for the longest time.  And decided I really should use them.  And some butter that's been in the fridge a while too.  The obvious solution to this problem?  A cheesecake!  No, really :)

I googled some recipes and found this one on

I changed the base (I used my regular biscuit base - a crushed packet of Nice biscuits and 125g melted butter).

I took it along to the games night on Saturday night where it was well received.  So will have to try it again some time :)
