  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease the cake pan. Put the biscuits in a food bag and crush with a rolling pin. Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the biscuit crumbs and stir until moistened. Press an even layer of crumbs in the bottom of the pan.
  2. Combine the blueberries and the 3 tbsp sugar in a food processor and process until smooth, then push the mixture through a fine sieve into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then allow to bubble for 3-5 minutes or until thickened and jam-like. Set aside. Rinse the bowl of the food processor.
  3. Combine the 3/4 cup sugar, the cream cheese, mascarpone, 2 eggs, vanilla, and flour in the food processor and process until well blended. Pour the mixture on to the crumb crust and smooth the top. With a teaspoon, carefully drizzle the blueberry mixture over the cream cheese mixture, swirling to make a decorative pattern. Bake the cheesecake for 40 minutes or until it has set but still has a slight wobble in the middle when you shake the pan. Leave to cool in the oven for 1 hour, then cool completely in the refrigerator and serve.
  • Cheat...Instead of making the blueberry topping, spoon a blueberry compote over each serving.
