In Sweden we celebrate Midsommar (=Midsummer) at the time of the summer solstice. It's an important festivity in Sweden, only rivalled by Christmas really. I enjoy Midsommar very much, not so much because it finally means some warmer weather but because it is the longest day of the year (on the northern hemisphere). Where I live, the sun doesn't even set, giving us a full 24 hours of daylight - I love it!

Another thing that I enjoy about Midsommar are the berries. And for the celebration of Midsommar cake is a necessity, so what better than a cake filled with juicy delicious berries!
For Midsommar this year I made a No-Bake Berry Cheesecake, and I topped it with fresh berries. Oh how I love berries!
NO-BAKE BERRY CHEESECAKE
- 1 package of Oreos (154 grams)
- 50 grams butter, melted
- 300 grams cream cheese
- 250 grams ricotta cheese
- 4 dl heavy cream (whipping cream)
- 120 grams sugar
- 250 grams raspberries
- 250 grams bilberries (or blueberries)
Crush the Oreos to crumbles and add the melted butter to it. Press the Oreo crumbles into a round pan (preferably a springform pan). Put into freezer while preparing the rest.
Cook the berries (can cook them together as they will be mixed) and purée it.
Whisk together the cream cheese, the ricotta cheese, the heavy cream and the sugar until it thickens. Add the berry purée and whisk until it is evenly distributed. Pour onto the Oreos in your pan and freeze for a minimum of 6 hours, preferably over night.
Remove from freezer 20 minutes before serving.
