Trusted Recipes from a Self-Taught Baker

An easy recipe for Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Bars.

Creamy, dreamy lemon cheesecake infused with fresh blueberries on top of a brown sugar oatmeal cookie crust.

Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Bars Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold

  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie mix*

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened to room temperature (I used reduced fat)

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 Tablespoons grated lemon zest (about 2 large lemons)

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (about 2 large lemons)

  • 1 and 1/2 cups fresh blueberries, not frozen

How to Make Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Bars

  1. Preheat oven to 350F (177C). Line 8×8 or 9×9 baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Generously spray parchment paper/foil with nonstick spray. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, cut butter into cookie mix using a fork or electric mixer. Stir in 1 egg until mixture is crumbly.

  3. Press half of oatmeal cookie dough into bottom of prepared baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Reserve the other half of the dough for topping.

  4. While cookie crust is baking, prepare cheesecake filling: With an electric handheld or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese, 1 egg, sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest together until creamy. Make sure there are no cream cheese chunks hiding, you want the mixture nice and smooth. Remove cookie crust from oven and reduce heat to 325F (163C). Pour the lemon cheesecake filling over the hot cookie crust. Sprinkle the blueberries overtop and gently press them down. Crumble the reserved oatmeal cookie dough over the blueberries.

  5. Bake for 35 minutes until the top is lightly browned. The cheesecake filling will slightly jiggle in the center. Allow bars to cool completely and chill for at least 3 hours before cutting. I chilled mine in the refrigerator overnight. I highly suggest chilling them for up to 12 hours, which allows the bars to be cut easily.

Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Bars Reviews

  • Love this receipe

  • This is my favorite recipe from all of your recipes that Ive ever made (which is quite a lot, because theyre all amazing). Ive also made it for others and the reactions varied from "amazing" to "I dont want to talk, I just want to eat this" to "this must be whats served in heaven". And then someone offered to pay me to bake them a double batch for a party Turns out, they only needed 1.5 batch, but wanted some extra for themselves - because these are just THAT good. The tangy and sweet lemon filling pairs perfectly with the juicy blueberries, and the oatmeal crust and topping offer just the right amount of warmth. Just... perfection.

Truth hurts! Nothing is perfect, life is messy. Relationship are complex. Outcomes are uncertain, people are irrational.
