Description

There’s cheesecake, and then there are blueberry cheesecake squares. Liven up your cheesecake with blueberry love with this easy recipe.


Ingredients

Cookie Crust:

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon ice water

Cheesecake Filling:

  • 16 ounces (2 packages) softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup blueberry jam. I highly recommend Stonewall Kitchen Wild Maine Blueberry Jam!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9X13 inch pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place flour, sugar and salt in food processor and pulse until combined.
  3. Add butter and process until the dough begins to form a ball, adding ice water if necessary.
  4. Press dough evenly over the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake until crust is lightly golden, about 20 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes.
  5. While the crust is cooking make the filling by mixing  cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well blended.
  6. Add eggs and mix just until eggs are mixed in.
  7. After crust cools for 30 minutes, pour cheesecake filling evenly over the crust.
  8. Spoon jam in dollops on top of filling and then swirl with a knife to combine.
  9. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until center is set. Cool in pan and then cut in squares.
