Blackberry Cheesecake Pots

I am sure you have heard the rumor by now that Mardi of Eat. Live. Travel. Write is hosting this round of Hay Hay it’s Donna Day. I was really excited that she said she had the time as I had to beg her to get her entry in last month – sorry about that “gentle” nudge!

Mardi decided to sweeten up HHDD this month with Blackberry Cheesecake Pots.  I made this recipe last Saturday – it did not last long enough to photograph it.  So, I made it again on Sunday, snap some pictures and we shoveled it into our big mouths!  Easy.  Delicious.  Basically cheesecake filling in a cup.  This is one of those fall-on recipes to have when you need a quick dessert for guests.  It has cream cheese, sugar, a little cream and fruit.  Simple, right!  I did add a little more cream cheese then the recipe called for as well I cut the sugar down a bit and added vanilla bean paste.  Really lovely!  Thank you Mardi for hosting this month’s HHDD and for picking a winning recipe!

What are you waiting for? Time to get cooking …



  1. Love this! The jars that you used are adorable. Love this challenge and will have to check out the recipe :)

  2. Beautiful photo. Saw your tweet that those are yogurt jars from from your travels in Europe. I never thought to bring them home. I now know what I need to do the next time I’m in France!

  3. Eeee! Beautiful (look at those sweet glass jars!!)Is this using your new-ish lens? These are the kind of desserts I’ve told myself I need to try and not make at home for a little while…so easy to eat it all myself :) Looks great, Denise!

  4. Glad to host Denise – so much fun seeing what everyone else is coming up with! And *snap* on the little glass pots!!! Love that you had to make it twice!

  5. Julia says:

    Gorgeous picture!!!!! Vanilla bean pasta, that would be AMAZING!

  6. Blackberries are my favorite berry. Love them! Your photos are fantastic. I need a spoon to dive in!

  7. What gorgeous photos! Yum!

  8. Absolutely stun.ning.

    LOVE IT!

  9. Oh these pots are so cute, what a great idea!! I’m so happy that berry season’s just round the corner, already thinking about these pots with strawberries, blueberries or raspberries…mmmmmm!

  10. Your dessert looks yummy! I could not find blackberries, so I will be posting a little variation shortly. It was fun to participate in this month’s HHDH event.

  11. Hmm, I make a white chocolate mousse something like this. So white chocolate blackberry mousse?

    and yes yes…I know it’s not really chocolate.

  12. Oh that looks so good. Blackberry picking is just a week or so away, so I’m bookmarking this one for sure!

  13. Made this, layered with more fresh berries & real whipped cream in clear glasses and had teenage boys ask me for the recipe. Seriously. Thank you.

  14. My goodness those blackberry cheesecake pots look to die for! I can understand why you would have had to have made them twice in one weekend.

  15. I love blackberries, love cheesecake, and love simple desserts. I’ll definitely be checking out this recipe. I also love your beautiful photo! :)

  16. I wish I could have found blackberries but did not, so in the exhaustion of the other night, finished my RASPBERRY cheesecake ones and managed to call them STRAWBERRY in my entry; so you might eventually see my STRASBERRY recipe? This was so easy and so good…but seriously…did you get four of them? I got two and had no problem eating one myself, nope, I did not!
