Blueberry-Lemon-Cream Cheese Bars
Contributed by Liza Braunlich
1 c. butter
1 c. powdered sugar
2 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Beat the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Add flour and mix just until
mixture forms crumbs. Press about 2/3 of the crumbs in the bottom of a 13 X 9 inch
greased baking dish. Bake 400° for 10 – 12 min. NOTE: I usually just microwave the
butter and stir in the sugar, flour and vanilla and it works fine.
8 oz. cream cheese
¼ cup sugar
Microwave the cream cheese until warm, add the sugar and spread over baked crust.
Mix together and spread on crust:
½ c. granulated sugar
3 T. flour
Juice and zest of one lemon
1/8 tsp salt
4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
Sprinkle remaining cookie base on top.
Bake 350 for 30-40 minutes. Cool completely
