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. 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!
