I used butter instead of shortning, and I increased the cream cheese to 1 cup. I also added a crumb toping of: 1/2 cup sliced almonds 1 cup flour 3/4 cup oats 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 cup marg 2 tblsp whipping cream and just used my fingers to mix it till crumbly and sprinkled it over the top. Really good!

Not impressed with recipe. Too many other recipes out there that are great. Certainly did not taste like cheesecake. Edges crusty and rest cakelike...even used an airbake pan. Would not make again.

I tweaked this recipe a bit...I used 8oz of 1/3 less fat cream cheese, a pint of blueberries and vanilla instead of almond. More cheesecake like on top, cake-like on the bottom, like a pastry.

Excellent! I altered the recipe by using 3 eggs in the crust (instead of one) and using vanilla. For the topping, I only used 1 egg and 8 oz. of cream cheese. when I placed the blueberries, I sprinkled with cinammon and a little fresh grated nutmeg. This turned out beautifully and was so yummy.

These blueberry bars are great! I added a little bit more cream cheese (1/2 cup) as someone suggested and more blueberries. I highly recommend this recipe!

Wonder Flavor and really very easy to prepare -- it just takes a while to bake. Refridgeration really enhances the flavor

My family loved this recipe. The only thing I did different was to add a little sugar and cinnamon on top of the blueberries. There are not like bars, more of a coffee cake, but a great taste! YUM!
