Blackberry CheesecakeThis cheesecake is wonderful! We had friends visiting and I offered them a piece of cheesecake after our wonderful meal at the Lobster Pound. They asked if they could have seconds! They asked if they could have a slice for breakfast! I actually gave them the rest of the cheesecake to take home, they remembered that I had said that before our wine tasting outing and when we returned home, they said, “Oh we don’t want to forget our cheesecake!” Best review ever!
