Nutty Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

All I can say is…I think you will want to try these.  Can’t type anymore, I’m eating!

                         

2 cups flour
1¼ cups finely chopped walnuts, divided
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup cold butter
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 pkg (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°.  In large bowl, combine flour, 1 cup of finely chopped walnuts, brown sugar and salt.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Press half crumb mixture onto bottom of a sprayed 13” x 9” baking pan, set other half crumb mixture aside.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.  Evenly distribute blueberries over top of crust.

In large bowl with electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs, milk, and vanilla until smooth, pour over blueberries. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture evenly over cream cheese layer, then sprinkle the 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts over crumbs.  Press down gently.

Bake for 25 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean.  Cool on wire rack for 1 hour, then refrigerate until set to cut into squares.  Store in refrigerator.  Recipe adapted from tasteofhome.com.
