Ingredients for Lemon Blackberry Cheesecake

Graham cracker crumbs: Buy pre-made graham cracker crumbs rather than crushing graham crackers yourself. 

Butter: Use unsalted butter for the crust. Salted works in a pinch too. 

Cream cheese: Use full fat, brick cream cheese softened to room temperature.

Sugar: Granulated sugar, because this is desert and we want to balance out the lemon.

Sour cream: Helps gives the cheesecake a nice smooth consistency. Should be room temperature.

Vanilla extract: I prefer to use real vanilla extract in my baking, but artificial is OK too.

Salt: Makes all the flavours really shine.

Eggs: Make sure they are room temperature.

Lemons: Buy whole lemons for this recipe, as you’ll need both lemon juice and zest.

Blackberries: Use fresh blackberries. Frozen should work, but I have not tested that.

Blackberry pie filling: Topping with blackberry pie filling is ideal. Optionally you could just top with fresh blackberries.
