Ingredients

* 1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
* 1/4 cup sugar
* 1 tablespoon lemon juice
* 2 teaspoons cornstarch
* 1 tablespoon cold water
* CRUST:
* 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 16 squares)
* 2 tablespoons sugar
* 2 tablespoons butter, melted
* FILLING:
* 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
* 1 cup sugar
* 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* 4 eggs, beaten
* 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


In a small saucepan, combine the blueberries, sugar and lemon juice. Cook and stir over medium heat for 5 minutes or until the berries are softened. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into the blueberry mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; cool to room temperature. Transfer to a blender; cover and process until smooth. Set aside.


For crust, in a small bowl, combine the crumbs and sugar; stir in the butter. Press onto the bottom of a greased 9-in. springform pan. Place pan on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.


In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and flour until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Stir in sour cream, and vanilla. Pour into crust. Drizzle with blueberry mixture; cut through batter with a knife to swirl. Place pan on a baking sheet.


Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around the edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight.


Remove sides of pan. Refrigerate leftovers.
