Yogurt proves its versatility in Anna Olson’s Quark and Yogurt Cheesecake. This cheesecake tastes creamy but is actually quite light. Homemade blueberry preserves are a treat, but feel free to simply garnish the cheesecake with fresh berries or other fruit.

Consuming milk products is important whatever your age. As the needs of the human body changes with age, so does the number of recommended daily servings.


Ingredients


Filling Part 1:
2 cups (500 mL) 3% plain yogurt
2 cups (500 mL) Canadian Quark cheese

Crust:
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) whole wheat flour
3 tbsp (45 mL) packed dark brown sugar
3 tbsp (45 mL) honey
pinch ground cinnamon
pinch salt
1/4 cup (50 mL) unsalted butter, melted

Filling Part 2:
1/3 cup (75 mL) honey
1 egg
2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla
1 tsp (5 mL) finely grated lime zest

Blueberry Preserves:
2 cups (500 mL) fresh blueberries or 
frozen
1/3 cup (75 mL) granulated sugar
1/4 cup (50 mL) water
2 tbsp (30 mL) lime juice
1 1/2 tbsp (22 mL) cornstarch

Preparation

Filling Part 1: Stir yogurt and Canadian Quark cheese together. Spoon into a sieve lined with cheese cloth or large paper coffee filter; set over a bowl, wrap loosely with plastic wrap and chill for 24 hours. Discard the whey (the liquid in bowl). Cover and refrigerate yogurt/quark mixture until ready to use. (Prepare one day ahead.)

Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Lightly grease a 9-inch (23 cm) glass pie plate.

Crust: In a bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, honey, cinnamon and salt; stir into the melted butter, blending until the mixture has a rough, crumb texture. Press into prepared pie plate (it will be very crumbly). Bake for 15 minutes, until the edges brown lightly. Set aside.

Filling Part 2: Whisk drained yogurt/quark mixture, honey, egg, vanilla and lime zest until smooth. Pour into cooled pie shell and bake for 30 minutes or until set. Cool to room temperature. Chill at least 4 hours before serving.

Blueberry Preserves: In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine berries, sugar and water over, bring to a simmer, occasionally stirring gently. In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice and cornstarch and stir into berries; return to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened. Cool, and then chill preserves completely before serving.

To serve, spoon half of the preserves over the cheesecake before slicing and spoon remaining preserves on the side of each slice.
