Lemon blueberry cheesecake bars start with a nutty pecan crust. Then there's a layer of sweet blueberry preserves, which is topped with a final layer of tangy lemon cheesecake filling! So good.
Grab some pecans, preserves, and a handful of other ingredients, and let's get started on these cheesecake bars!
Step 1. In a medium bowl, combine the ingredients for the crust with either your hands or a fork.
Step 2. Press the mixture into a prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes. Then, set the pan aside to cool.
Step 3. Next, spread the blueberry preserves evenly over the top of the crust.
Step 4. Then, in a new mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese and sugar.
Step 5. Beat in the eggs as well, followed by the lemon juice and vanilla. Mix until everything is smooth.
Step 6. Pour the cheesecake filling over the blueberry preserves, then bake the bars for 40-45 minutes.
Step 7. Let the cheesecake bars cool in the pan for 1 hour. Then, chill the pan in the fridge for at least 2 hours before cutting the squares.
And that's all there is to it! Enjoy these tangy lemon cheesecake bars with blueberry preserves.
