Berry Cheesecake Bars are an easy dessert perfect for summer entertaining or as an every day treat.
Berry Cheesecake Bars
I am cheesecake obsessed but I don’t make it as often as I want it because that would be every day.
I found myself with a major cheesecake craving and only had one package of cream cheese to my name. So I decided these easy cheesecake bars would do the trick. No fancy cheesecake pan needed for these either.
They have a quick shortbread crust and a lemon cheesecake filling plus loads of fresh blackberries and blueberries that I coated in raspberry jam.
I don’t get too wound up about my cheesecakes cracking. I almost always top them with whipped cream or ganache. You know perfect isn’t my thing….
Patience isn’t really my thing either and I could’ve let these bars chill a little longer before I decided to have a piece. They were still dang good but even better the next day.
These Berry Cheesecake Bars are perfect for summer barbecues and potlucks. Fresh berries are my favorite and I really want to find a fresh berry patch this summer. We have tons of wild blackberries but I would love to pick fresh strawberries and blueberries to put in the freezer.
This week is the last week of school! Wahoo! I know it seems early but our school year usually starts around the second week of August. I am so ready for the summer break. Just four more days and then a break from the hectic school mornings.
We don’t have summer travel plans but I’m sure there will plenty of time at the lake.
I haven’t been posting much lately. I have been cooking up a storm, making videos and I’ve made a couple of trips to see my folks. I promise lots of new recipes to come!
