And bonus, this Blueberry Cheesecake boasts a vanilla wafer crust!  I’ve all the time used vanilla wafers in my mini cheesecakes however for some purpose hadn’t tried them on any pies/full measurement cheesecakes – till this magnificence.  You’ll love the buttery, vanilla crumble crust.  I choose it to graham cracker crusts and may’t wait to listen to what you assume!
