Salted Caramel Blackberry Cheesecake

Salted caramel blackberry cheesecake!

Today is the holiday of Shavuot, which is basically a Jewish celebration of cheese, and I thought there’s no better way to celebrate than with a salted caramel blackberry cheesecake. I don’t usually have a sweet tooth, but if I’m going to make dessert there’s going to be caramel involved. I decided to add the blackberry as the perfect sour contrast to the sweetness of the caramel, giving this cheesecake the perfect balance of flavors.

This sinful dessert is also surprisingly simple to whip up. I always make the classic recipe for the base and then go a little crazy with the toppings. So believe it or not, making a salted caramel blackberry cheesecake isn’t that complicated!
