This is one of my favorites, blackberries, combined with my husbands favorite, cheesecake. So a perfect combo, you will so enjoy these. To me it’s a taste of the holidays plus a reminder of summer flavors. Great gifts for neighbors, friends, and coworkers, or a great dessert for your next Christmas party.
