How to Make Coconut Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Ingredients:

    Crust:
    2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    2 tablespoons coconut flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
    1 cup granulated sugar
    4 tablespoons water

    Filling:
    12 ounces cream cheese, (1 1/2 packages) softened
    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    2 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 large eggs
    2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

    Topping:
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut
    3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  2. Preparation:

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9-inch pan with parchment paper.

    In a large bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter and sugar until creamy, about 1-2 minutes; reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until just combined and crumbly. Press mixture into bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until light golden around edges; remove from oven.

    To make the filling, in a medium bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together cream cheese and sugar until creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in lemon juice, zest and vanilla extract until combined. Beat in eggs until combined, about 1 minute; pour filling over the top of crust, and evenly sprinkle with blueberries. Return pan to oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until set.

    To make the topping, in a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, coconut, cinnamon and salt; cut in butter using pastry blender or fork, until ingredients are well incorporated and start to clump together. Sprinkle the crumbly mixture evenly over the cheesecake filling. Return pan to oven and bake an additional 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for an hour before lightly covering and chilling for 2 hours, or until cold. Lift parchment paper out of pan and slice cheesecake into rows, 3x5, to make 15 bars.
