Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Bars

Blueberry filling:
1 C. blueberries, chopped
1/4 C. orange juice
2 T. sugar
2 t. cornstarch

Crumb mixture:
1 1/4 C. flour
3/4 C. rolled oats
3/4 C. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 C. margarine, chilled

Cheesecake filling:
8 oz. cream cheese
2 eggs
1/2 C. sugar
2 T. fresh lemon juice
1 t. grated lemon peel

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease bottom of a 9 x 13-inch pan.

In saucepan, combine blueberry filling ingredients; stir until cornstarch dissolves. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick and bubbly (about 5 minutes). Set aside to cool.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine crumb mixture ingredients except margarine; mix well. Using a fork, cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 1 cup crumb mixture for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture firmly in bottom of greased pan. Bake for 10 minutes.

While crust is baking, mix together cream cheese filling until well blended; pour into baked crust. Spoon blueberry filing over cream cheese filing, swirl with knife to blend. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely. Cut into bars.

Makes 36 bars.
