Sopapilla Blueberry Cheesecake Step 1

But I couldn’t stop just there. Although just a simple creamy cheesecake filling is a very good combo with crescent rolls and buttery sugar coated crust, I had to try some changes. Bowl full of fresh, juicy, ripe blueberries on my table was enough to inspire me to re-try my old recipe with a small but significant addition. And that’s how these Blueberry Cheesecake Bars showed on my blog.

Actually, I had to admit something. I baked these Easy Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars twice in one day. And that’s not because my first batch didn’t turn out OK. With this recipe there’s no failure. I took photos of step by step tutorial and let the baked bars cooling on the counter without warning my family that these yummy bars are new material for my blog. So I ended up with just a few bars left for shooting which wasn’t enough. To their luck, they got away unpunished because cream cheese and cans of crescent rolls are something I always have in stock so I could immediately start all over again. And fortunately these Sopapilla Blueberry Cheesecake Bars requires just 5 mins of prep time so I did not have too much to bother.

  1. I made these for a picnic yesterday and they were so good!!!! and easy!!!! Just like you said! My oven runs hot so I only had to bake them for 20 minutes. I cooled them for 15-20 minutes at room temp and was in a hurry so I threw it in the freezer for 45 minutes and then took it in the cooler to the picnic an hour away. They traveled well and were a hit! Several people asked for the recipe. Thank you for my new favorite recipe.
  2. Made these but added a 1/2 tsp of almond extract, used raspberries instead of blueberries and sprinkled the top with some almonds as well. Sooooo Yummy!
