These scrumptious Blueberry Cream Cheese bars bring out the best that the pair has to offer in an easy to make recipe that is simply gorgeous. I love to make these for potlucks, family reunions and bake sales. Now of all the things that go with blueberries, cream cheese has got to be at the top of that list. Delectable sweet blueberries are simmered in a lightly sweetened sauce and then swirled in a cheesecake filling all atop a simple graham cracker crust. Folks, life does not get much better than this. Everyone always enjoys them and complements how incredibly delicious they taste.
