Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars
Tyler Florence's Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars (or Squares)

My fantasy boyfriend is George Clooney.
For my sister-in-law, it's Tyler Florence.
I was over their house once, and my nephew said, "Mom, your-th boyfriend-th is on TV-th" (He was three and had three-year old speech).

Okay. Electronics update. In March, I got a new cell phone AND broke down and got the cable DVR. Both, in short order, have changed my life. First, my phone is the LG enV and it has a full QWERTY keyboard. Now, my txt messages will say more than "ok" or "how u"

The other will help my baking. Really. I have Tyler's Ultimate on record-this-series thingy and the first one was Chicken Salad...with Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars. I have been looking for a cheesecake bar and there was Tyler giving me the recipe! I found it online and watched the show twice to make sure I had the technique down.

Yummy ingredients make for a yummy dessert!

Making the crust with a sleeve of graham cracker, sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Easy-peasy. I had to resist eating the rest of the box - graham crackers remind me of my childhood and snack time.

The filling is made with cream cheese, lemon juice, zest, eggs and sugar. My filling was thicker than Tyler's...but his cream cheese came out of a carton and mine from the blocks. Was his whipped?

One pint of blueberries (these are grown in Chile) get thrown on top.

Out of the oven and ready to be cut (be sure to chill the cheesecake several hours or overnight)

Although not everyone loves you (Miss J!) like my sister-in-law, but you have a nice recipe! I would definitely make this again!
Pin It!

Dear God. You sure know how to torture a poor, hungry, dieting soul. ;)

I just saw this episode on tv. These look great! In my limited experience, his recipes are fairly easy and they turn out well. I've tried his chicken parmesan with much success. I'm going to add these bars to my must-try list.

BTW, did you know George Clooney is from KY?
