Cool, creamy lemon-blueberry cheesecake atop a sweet, buttery, crunchy crumb crust.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Additional Time 3 hours 30 minutes
Total Time 4 hours 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 10 full sheets of graham crackers (Or 1 1/2 cups if using pre-packaged crumbs)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 Tbsp melted butter

Filling

  • 2 8-ounce blocks of cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • Juice from one lemon (about 3 Tbsp)
  • Zest from 2 lemons
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries (Do not defrost)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Extend the parchment paper over the sides so you can lift out the chilled bars.
  3. Prepare the crust:
  4. Use a food processor or blender to crush the crackers into fine crumbs. Add the butter and sugar to the crumbs and pulse until the mixture resembles brown sugar.
  5. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan.
  6. Bake for 5 minutes and set aside to cool.
  7. Prepare the filling:
  8. Beat the cream cheese at medium speed until smooth.
  9. Add the egg, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes.
  10. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  11. Spoon filling evenly over the crust.
  12. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cheesecake has set up and the edges slightly browned.
  13. The bars will be puffy but will sink as they cool.
  14. Cool for 30 minutes at room temperature, then refrigerate the pan for three hours or more.
  15. Lift the parchment paper out of the pan and cut the bars into squares.
