Cheesecake is such a guy dessert. My husband's favorite is this cheesecake. Blackberry puree in a swirly pattern.

The crust is a combination of chocolate, graham crackers and gingersnaps. This is my signature cheesecake that is also for sale and demonstrated in private baking classes. I like the texture and tangyness of the cake.

We're visiting family in San Diego. The cake arrived safely. Happy Holiday to all.

You and your hubs are my heroes. I was just trying to figure out what good treat I could take into my office tomorrow that would use the blackberries I have sitting in my fridge. Now I know. Happy Holidays!

How do you stop your cheesecake from cracking along the swirls? Also, do you have problems with the fruit swirls weeping?

Lovely photograph and I like blackberries. Your swirls are very pretty. I sure there is a secret there if you would be willing to share?
Happy holidays to you as well.
PS I used gingersnaps. I love the flavor with the cheesecake
