Lemon Blackberry Cheesecake

Lemon Blackberry Cheesecake

I made this dessert for the 2012 Carroll Easter. I found this recipe on Pinterest. It was posted on iVillage(http://www.ivillage.com/lemon-blackberry-cheesecake/3-r-408025). I made a couple healthy changes; greek yogurt instead of sour cream and light cream cheese instead of regular and then I mixed some yogurt, sugar and a squeeze of lemon and poured a few tablespoons on top with blackerries and a dusting of icing sugar – purely esthetic. When I make this again (can’t wait for the next time – it was delicious) I would make two small changes: I would divide the batter in 1/3 and 2/3 and add the blackberries to the 1/3 instead of 1/2, this way you could get a much deeper colour in the bottom; andI would add some more lemon to it for a stronger lemon flavour.
