Blueberry Chocolate Cheesecake

I am not very looking forward to this weekend as my maid is going back for home leave next Monday. That means I'll have no one to cook, to wash and to clean the house for almost a month, I probably be the "maid" during that period and might not have spare time for baking and other stuffs that I would like to do.

I don't like to be bogged down by house chores. As I've not been doing this for more than 10 years, I'm not sure whether I will be able to cope again. After discussed with my hubby, we decided not to cook, this will help to reduce some of the washing part so that we have more time for ourselves. Will keep my fingers crossed, everything should go well ...

This is the dessert I made yesterday. Blueberry again?! Oh ya.. I still have half can of blueberry pie filling left over from my last Blueberry Sponge Cheesecake and since I've been wanting to try this Blueberry White Chocolate Cheesecake recipe for sometime, this just fits in. This recipe is taken from one of the cookbook I bought sometime back, it's a cold set cheesecake and therefore, no baking is needed. There is no hassle to make this dessert, what you need is patience as a lot of waiting time will be required.

Since this is my first attempt, I decided to halve the recipe. I added 1 tbsp of lemon juice hoping that it will cut down the sweetness of the blueberry pie filling. To my surprise, the combination of white chocolate, cream cheese and blueberry blend so perfectly, the sweetness is just right, the cake turned out extremely creamy, yummy and tasty. For those who are health/ weight conscious, this will be a very sinful dessert since cheese and chocolate both contain high level of calories and fat. You probably have to halve the amount of your intake.

Here is the recipe for sharing.
