Lemon and Blueberry are one of my personal favorite flavor combinations. It provides such a fresh and delicious flavor. Paired with cheesecake, it makes one heavenly dessert!

These Cheesecake Bars were so simple and absolutely divine! I loved how easy it was to make and the end product was enjoyed by all who tried it! It is such a beautiful dessert with the streaks of purple/blue blueberries swirled throughout.

    I'm such a sucker for lemon and cream cheese together (if blueberries are in the mix, well then that's just a lovely bonus)! ;)

    Hi Nikki! My name is Ruby and I'm 9 years old. I'm learning how to cook and I made these today with my grandma Jane and they are awesome!! She made a blueberry sauce to serve on the top which made them even more incredible! She has a blog, too-Cottage at the Crossroads. Thank you for the recipe.

    Is the center of the cheesecake supposed to be soupy? I'm not sure if I should leave it in longer or take it out and let it set. :(
