Blueberry Cheesecake Parfait

My Aunt Carol was an amazing cook There was nothing better than her homemade bread and butter. She would have loved my Raspberry Honey Butter recipe. Blueberry Cheesecake Dessert was one of my favorite recipes that she made for special family occasions.

It is so easy to make. If you can make Jello, you can make Blueberry Cheesecake Dessert. My mother-in-law makes the Strawberry Pretzel version. It uses strawberries instead of blueberries.  It is delicious too. 

I like to combine blueberries and blackberries because they taste so good together. If you want to leave them out the recipe is still really good.

One of my favorite stores to buy these berries is Sprouts They are located in many parts of the United States. I have included a link to help you find a store near you. 

I probably should have called it the Black & Blue Cheesecake Dessert.  Not a very appetizing name so I decided to just call it Blueberry Cheesecake Desserts. No matter what it is called, it is one of my favorite desserts.

The recipe for the Aunt Carols Blueberry Parfait is easy to serve in fun stem ware for an individual dessert.  Try Blueberry Cheesecake Dessert for your next special occasion.   Easter brunch, Mother’s Day brunch are two that would be perfect occasions to serve this dish.
