These baked Cheesecake Bars are baked so they hold their shape yet are divinely creamy (but not dense). Baking the blueberries in the cheesecake softens them beautifully. See in post for a more detailed description of this cheesecake compared to other types. These bars can be eaten with your hands.
1. This recipe requires 1 1/4 cups of biscuit crumbs, and you can substitute with any plain sweet biscuit.
This step can also be done by placing the biscuits in a ziplock bag and bashing with a rolling pin - very satisfying! Then pour into bowl to mix in butter.
2. Slightly adapted from this recipe
by Tyler Florence.
3. Optional to make a gorgeous glistening blueberry sauce for the top instead of folding blueberries in. Refer to the No Bake recipe for directions.
4. The surface will crack slightly - not massive craters, small cracks, especially around the blueberries which is why I dust with sugar. To avoid cracks, don't put any blueberries on the surface - but I like the look of blueberries on the surface.
