For the Crust:

To Make the Cheesecake

  1. Add the cream cheese to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat on medium speed until smooth. Scrape down the sides and beat in the yogurt.
  2. Mix in the sugar, vanilla, almond extract, salt and cornstarch until combined. Beat in the eggs one at a time until fully incorporated. Scoop the batter evenly over the 18 crusts.
  3. Bake 25-50 minutes. Cool completely and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  4. When the cheesecakes are cooled, make the blueberry sauce.

To Make the Blueberry Sauce:

  1. Add the blueberries, 3 tablespoons water and sugar to a small sauce pan and cook over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook about 5 minutes to soften the blueberries.
  2. Mix 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 1 tablespoon water and mix until the cornstarch is dissolved. Stir the cornstarch mixture into the blueberries and stir as it thickens. Remove the sauce from the heat and spoon over the cheesecakes before serving. You can also refrigerate the sauce until ready to serve.
