How To Make Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Bars Recipe

Preheat oven to 325F. Butter the bottom and sides of a 9×9 inch metal baking pan. Put a long piece of parchment paper in the bottom of the pan, letting the parchment extend up two sides of the pan and overhang slightly on both ends. Place another piece of parchment paper in the same manner, perpendicular to the first sheet. (This will make it easy to remove the bars from the pan after they have baked.) Butter the parchment.

In a large bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Combine the mixture, then turn it out into the prepared pan. Using your hands, press the crust into an even layer on the bottom of the pan. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until set. Remove pan to a cooling rack. Do not turn your oven off.
