Ingredients

Crust:

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup ground almonds

  • cup butter, melted

Blueberry Filling:

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • ¾ cup water

Cheesecake Filling:

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream

Directions

  1. Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and almonds in a bowl. Pour in butter and mix until incorporated.

  2. Grease a 10-inch springform pan and press crumb mixture over the bottom to make a crust.

  3. Combine blueberries and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat; simmer for 5 minutes. Stir cornstarch into water until dissolved. Pour into the blueberry mixture and cook until thick, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

  4. Beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in ice cream, 1 spoonful at a time, until blended.

  5. Spoon 3/4 of the cream cheese mixture over the crust. Cover with the blueberry filling. Spoon remaining cream cheese mixture on top. Run a fork through the cheesecake to create swirls.

  6. Freeze, uncovered, until firm, about 2 hours. Cover with plastic wrap and keep frozen.

Cook's Note:

If you don't want to make your own filling, use 1 can pie filling (cranberry, cherry, etc.).
