Lemon-Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

Posted on

Get ready for a delightful spring treat with our lemon-blueberry cheesecake bars! These bars were such a hit during the holidays that we wanted to create a fresh version perfect for the warmer weather ahead. Instead of cranberries, we’ve added juicy blueberries to our creamy lemony cheesecake mixture, nestled between layers of flaky pastry. It’s the ultimate dessert for springtime.

Just like our other cheesecake bars, we’ve used crescent roll dough for that homemade taste without the hassle. It’s simple to use and creates wonderfully flaky, buttery layers every time.

Tip: Whether you prefer them warm and gooey or chilled from the fridge, these cheesecake bars are equally delicious. Serve them straight away for a comforting dessert, or chill them ahead of time for a refreshing treat later!
