  • Deep Pie Dish Pan
  • Mixer


Cheesecake Crust

  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup ground walnuts
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom
  • teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoon butter (unsalted)

Berry Topping

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • teaspoon cinnamon
  • teaspoon cardamom
  • cup water
  • cups huckleberries
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Cheesecake Batter

  • 2 teaspoon vanilla (divided)
  • 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream (or Cool Whip)
  • 3 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 8 ounce cream cheese
  • ½ cup sugar


Cheesecake Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine flour, brown sugar, walnuts, and spices. Cut in butter until crumbly.
  • Press into a pie dish. Bake for 12 minutes, or until nicely browned.

Berry Topping

  • Combine sugar, cornstarch, and spices in a saucepan. Add water and stir until smooth, then add the berries and lemon juice. Bring to a boil. 
  • Simmer for a few minutes or until thickened, then set aside to cool.

Cheesecake Batter

  • Add cold whipping cream, vanilla, and powdered sugar to a cold mixing bowl. Beat at low speed, then increase to medium-high until soft peaks form.
  • Remove whipped cream from the mixing bowl and wipe clean. Add softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Beat until fluffy, then fold the cream cheese mix into the whipped cream.


  • Layer cream cheese mixture and berry mixture in cooled crust, ending with the berries on top.
  • Refrigerate for at least 4 hours until set.


  • Instead of making your own crust, use a premade cheesecake crust, such as Honey Made Graham Cracker Crust. Similar crusts come in many great flavors like chocolate, shortbread, and pecan.
  • Another way to save time is to use whipped topping instead of making your own whipped cream from scratch.
  • If you're in a real hurry, you can skip layering the cream cheese and berry filling. Simply pour the cream cheese filling into the prepared crust and top with the cooled berry filling.
