Red, White, and Blueberry
Cheesecake Tart

"This is the ideal grand finale for a Fourth of July dinner.
The fresh plums might be yellow inside,
but cooking them will bring out their crimson color."


By Brenda Storch, Messianic Rebbetzin of
The Tabernacle



  • 6 graham crackers
  • 1/3c. whole almonds
  • 1 1/4 c. sugar
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 bars reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 c. reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 red plums
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 pt. blueberries


  1. Make crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, grind graham crackers, almonds, and 1/4 cup sugar until finely ground; add butter, and process until moistened. Transfer to a 9-inch removable-bottom tart pan. Using the base of a dry measuring cup, press mixture firmly into the bottom and up sides of pan. Freeze at least 15 minutes.

  2. Make filling and bake: Carefully wipe processor blade and bowl clean. Place cream cheese, sour cream, 1/2 cup sugar, egg, vanilla, and salt in food processor; blend just until smooth. Place tart pan on a rimmed baking sheet; fill with cheesecake mixture. Bake until filling is just set, 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer tart pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
