How to Make Blueberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars

My official dessert taste tester of the blog (aka my husband) gave these blueberry swirl cheesecake bars the complete stamp of approval and the lemon blueberry sauce was his favorite part.

The sauce pairs perfectly with the lemon and vanilla cheesecake filling and the swirls look so pretty too!

I just love the beautiful purple color it adds to the cheesecake and will definitely be making this again when we have guests over. These blueberry cheesecake bars are definitely show stoppers and taste incredible.

 

Tools Needed For Blueberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars:

 

These blueberry swirl cheesecake bars are very easy to make, but as they have quite a few steps, I’ve broken it up into three main components below.

You’ll need to make a homemade blueberry swirl sauce, graham cracker crust, and cheesecake filling in that specific order. This is because your blueberry sauce will need to cool before you can add it to your cheesecake filling, and you will need to pre-bake your graham cracker crust.

If you plan to make these for a potluck or event, I recommend making them the day before so you can allow them to chill overnight before cutting.

Blueberry Swirl Sauce Instructions

  1. Place blueberries, cornstarch, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and granulated sugar into a sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring continuously.
  2. Once sauce begins to boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the blueberries begin to break down and the mixture thickens.
  3. Remove from heat and allow sauce to cool completely.

Graham Cracker Crust Instructions

  1. Adjust oven rack to the 2nd level mark and preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Spray the bottom and sides of an 8″ x 8″ cake pan with a non-stick spray and place a sheet of parchment paper with the sides hanging over. Spray the sides and bottom of the parchment paper with the baking spray and set aside.
  3. Place graham crackers in a blender or food processor and pulse until fine crumbs are formed. Add in melted butter and pulse until the consistency is similar to wet sand.
  4. Pour graham cracker crust into 8″x8″ pan that is lined with parchment paper and press down evenly using a fork.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes and allow to cool while you are making the cheesecake filling.

Cheesecake Filling Instructions

  1. Using a hand-mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese for 4-5 minutes on medium-high speed until it’s smooth and creamy in texture. Make sure you scrape down the sides to ensure everything is well incorporated.
  2. Next, add in the eggs, egg white, vanilla extract, granulated sugar, and all-purpose flour, and beat together until just combined.
  3. Pour the cream cheese filling over top of the slightly cooled graham cracker crust, then level and smooth with a spatula.
  4. Next, spoon the cooled, blueberry swirl sauce over top of the cream cheese filling. Using a toothpick or knife, swirl around to create a beautiful marbled look.
  5. Place cheesecake bars in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow the cheesecake bars to cool completely on a cooling rack before refrigerating for 2 hours to overnight.*
  7. After cheesecake has fully chilled, use this plastic knife to cut into bars and enjoy!

Notes

  • *Unless you’re in a hurry, I recommend letting your blueberry swirl cheesecake bars chill overnight before cutting. This will ensure clean cut bars and further enhances all the delicious flavors.
  • These Blueberry Cheesecake Bars can be frozen. To unfreeze simply set the bars in the refrigerator to thaw out overnight and allow cheesecake bars to come to room temperature for 30 minutes prior to serving.

    These were perfect the first time I tried this recipe but would I need to do anything different if I were to use frozen blueberries or doubled the recipe?

      Thanks Sara, so glad you enjoyed them! Although I haven’t personally tried it, you should be able to use frozen blueberries the same as fresh ones in the sauce. If you double the recipe, you would want to still put it in a pan of the same thickness, otherwise you would need to lessen the baking time if you’re making a thinner cheesecake bar. Hope that helps!

      You have lemon juice in the ingredients for the cheesecake filling but don’t include it in the instructions when making the cheesecake filling. Is it supposed to be in the filling?
