    Chill the crust for 30 minutes.

  • Make the filling:

  • 1

    Preheat the oven to 325 F (300 F for dark pans). In a bowl beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until it is light and fluffy. Add the sugar, gradually beating, and beat the mixture until it is well combined. Beat in the flour, add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, and beat in the sour cream, the zests, salt and vanilla, beating the filling until it is well combined. Pour the filling into the crust and bake the cheesecake in a foil-lined shallow baking pan in the middle of the oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes. (The cheesecake will not be completely set; it will set as it cools.)

    Turn the oven off and let the cheesecake stand in the oven with the oven door propped open about 6 inches until it is cooled completely and remove the side of the pan. Arrange the raspberries on top of the cheesecake in a star shape and arrange the blueberries around the star to cover the top of the cheesecake.
