Recipe: The Best Blueberry Topping Ever

I know.  It's kind of an inflammatory title.  There is going to be someone out there who disagrees.  But Whatever.  This is my blog so I am calling the shots.  I made this topping to go on my white chocolate cheesecake that I am making for my big family thanksgiving.  Cheesecake is my specialty and I am fairly sure that failure to bring one to Thanksgiving would result in my removal from the family.  This topping would also be delicious on ice cream or yogurt or oatmeal or anything else that blueberry goes well with.  So here you go.

The Best Blueberry Topping Ever
Time:  20 minutes
Makes enough to top one cheesecake

1 bag frozen blueberries
1 lemon
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup water

1.  Pour half the bag of blueberries into a small saucepan.  Add all other ingredients, reserving the other half of the blueberries.  

Reserved about this much
2.  Stir over medium heat.  When mixture comes to a boil, reduce to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes.  

I love the way the lemon zest contrasts with the blueberries.  Not that you actually see the zest when it is fully cooked and ready to go.  

3.  Add the rest of the blueberries to the saucepan.  Stir.  Allow to warm over low heat for 5 minutes.  
4.  Remove from heat and enjoy.  

Jealous of my family for tomorrow?  This is one of three delicious desserts.  

In other news, sorry for not posting in so horribly long but you know  Life is life and I'm also writing a novel and getting ready to decorate for Christmas.  

Happy Thanksgiving!
