Ingredients:
Crust:

2 cups graham cracker crumbs, I used Keebler
2 Tablespoons of sugar
1 stick of butter, melted


Cheesecake:

3 8 ounce packages of cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup of sugar
3 eggs, room temperature
2 Tablespoons of cornstarch
2 Tablespoons of vanilla
3/4 cup sour cream
*1 12 ounce package of white chocolate chips

Garnishes for flag decor:

Blueberries
Strawberries, sliced in half
Heavy Whipping Cream, 8 ounces
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
It’s time to celebrate Red, White and Blue and our Nation’s holiday, Independence Day. My bloggers friends and I showcasing some brand new, yummy treats that would be perfect for all Patriotic gatherings. Happy Fourth of July!
Combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar. Add melted butter and place into a springform pan. Form crust on the bottom and halfway up the sides of the pan. Place in freezer.
Microwave white chocolate morsels in a microwave safe bowl, according to package directions. Cool 10 minutes. *This is optional, you can make a delicious cheesecake without the white chocolate.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine cream cheese and sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix well. Add cornstarch and combine. Add vanilla, sour cream and cooled white chocolate and blend well. Place in springform pan and bake 1 hour and 15 minutes until center is about set. Cool for 15 minutes and remove ring from springform pan. Cool completely and place in refrigerator.
Prepare whipping cream by placing mixing bowl in refrigerator for a minimum of 20 minutes. At a high speed, combine heavy whipping cream, vanilla and powdered sugar to form stiff peaks. Place thick layer of whip cream on top of cheesecake. This will act as the “glue” to adhere your fruit on the cheesecake. Place blueberries in the upper left corner in a triangle shape. Add sliced strawberries straight across the cheesecake to form stripes. Use remaining whip cream to pipe stars between the strawberries. Refrigerate. God bless America! Enjoy!
