A wonderful Blueberry Cream Cheese Bar that combines cream cheese taste with blueberries and a buttery crumble topping. Great for a party or bring a dish to pass occasions. Just follow the easy step by step photo instructions.
Preheat oven to 375° conventional, not convection.
Start by coating an 8X8 baking pan with butter. Dice 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter. I prefer glass.
Mix two cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, one teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, one egg, and the butter. Cut the butter into the mixture with either a pastry cutter or fork until crumbly.
Press half of the crumble mixture into the buttered dish. Bake to firm up some for 8 minutes.
While the base is baking, clean and dry one pint of blueberries. Fresh preferred but frozen should be fine. Add two teaspoon cornstarch, and 1/2 cup sugar. Mix well.
Combine 8 oz of cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, and one egg. Beat with mixer until smooth.
When the crust is done, top with cream cheese mixture, then the blueberries and lastly with the rest of the crumble.
Bake until nicely browned. About 40 minutes.
Cool in a refrigerator for at least 2 hours and longer if possible before cutting.
This is for an 8X8, 9X9, or 9 inches round baking dish. You can do a double size with a 9X13 pan. The 9X9 will be a bit thinner.
The serving size I’m using about 2X2 but vary to your needs.
You can use frozen or fresh blueberries. Other berries should work fine but I have not tested them.
Be sure to cool for 2 hours prior to cutting,
Store airtight refrigerated for 2-3 days. It will be good frozen for 3-4 months.
