Our Blueberry Lemon Bars have the perfect crust that can actually be used to make some yummy shortbread cookies! This crust makes these bars easy to handle while complementing the lemon and blueberry flavours.

The centre of these bars is a delicious, blueberry flavoured cheesecake. Made with creamy blueberry flavoured greek yogurt, this cheesecake is delightfully fresh and light!

The topping is made with lemon pie filling and fresh blueberries. You can make your own lemon filling if you’d like, we took the easy way this time and bought pre-made canned lemon pie filling.
