I made this recipe as a little experiment and I have to say it was a delicious and very successful experiment! This Boysenberry Cheesecake Shortcake is a soft and crumbly shortcake base and top with boysenberry jam and a soft and creamy cheesecake center. This was a massive hit with my family.
The idea started when I was dreaming about this Plum and Pear Slice. I nearly gave in and made it but I had an extra container of cream cheese in the fridge and I didn’t have any plum jam. Or pears for that matter. So to avoid a trip to the supermarket I began thinking of other things I could try.
I love shortcake and have never really made one. I’ve made the odd one over the years but they never turned out exactly how I want them. So I began researching on the internet and found a few different recipes and decided to use those as guides and create my own ‘shortcake’.
