The ultimate blend of flavors and textures, these cheesecake bars combine smooth as silk cheesecake with blueberry pie filling. You won’t be able to stop at just 1 bite!
If I had to choose just one dessert to enjoy for the rest of my life, without thinking twice it would be cheesecake.
Until now I thought there’s nothing better in this world than chocolate cheesecake but these blueberry pie cheesecake bars made me question my decision. They are outrageously delicious and the ultra creamy filling makes my heart go pitter patter.
The idea of combining blueberry pie and cheesecake came to me out of nowhere. It was like a double craving. On one hand I wanted pie on the other hand I wanted lush cheesecake, so why not combining them, right?
And so I did. 3 times so far!
Needless to say no matter what size or shaped I made this cheesecake, it never lasted too long.
If I have to pick one, the bars are by far my favorite. Although the process is the same no matter if you’re making a round cheesecake, bars or single serving, making bars is so much easier! There’s no fear of cracks like in a round cheesecake nor does it require lots of hands-on preparation like the single serve ones.
Although bars are easier to make, you still have to plan ahead when making this cheesecake. It takes about 40 minutes to bake, 1 hour to cool down in the oven and a couple of hours in the refrigerator. It’s very important to allow the cheesecake to set before cutting into bars.
Just like other cheesecake bars, you start with the crust. My go-to cheesecake crust is a mixture of graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Just 2 ingredients.
The cheesecake filling has the usual ingredients – cream cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla extract. To prevent lumps in your cheesecake batter, you have to make sure your eggs and cream cheese are at room temperature.
For the blueberry swirl, I used canned blueberry pie. If blueberries are not your thing, you can easily substitute with other ready-to-go pie filling. Cherry, raspberry, blackberry or even apples. Enjoy these cheesecake bars year round. Keep in mind, you have to use canned pie filling and NOT canned fruit.
