Creamy and slightly tangy, the goat cheese gives a twist on the traditional cheesecake. Light and airy, this goat cheese cheesecake is drizzled with berry honey creme and topped with fresh blueberries. A scrumptious dessert to enjoy at the end of the day.
I absolutely adore cheesecake. May it be a slice of my favorite brownie bottom cheesecake, a bite of the oatmeal raisin cheesecake or the chocolate chip biscoff one. Any kind of cheesecake! I can say I have never made a cheesecake I didn’t like. There’s that melt in your mouth, rich creamy texture that makes me weak to my knees.
Most of the time cheesecake recipes call for 1 cup or 2 of cream cheese, which is a sample in my fridge, but this time I wanted to try something different. With all the goat cheese goodness I had in the fridge thanks to Woolwich dairy I thought to myself : what better way to end out cheese party than a light, airy goat cheese cheesecake topped with fresh berries? I’m so happy when I’m right!
I remembered stumbling a while back over a goat cheese cheesecake recipe on Bon Appetite that got me very intrigued, since, unlike traditional cheesecake where the eggs are mixed with the cheese and sugar, this particular recipe called for whipped egg whites to give the cheesecake a light texture.
A light dessert was exactly what I was looking for. Starting with the recipe from Bon Appetite I made one of the lightest cheesecakes ever!
The crust was a mixture of oats and walnuts, with just a little bit of melted butter to keep. No sugar added since I didn’t want an over-sweet dessert.
For the filling, I pretty much kept the method but skipped the addition of flour, making the goat cheese cheesecake completely gluten-free.
Once the cheesecake was cooled for few hours I drizzled some Blueberry honey creme and topped with fresh blueberries.
It was perfect! Light, airy, with just a little tanginess from the goat cheese!
