You will need:

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a 8×8 baking dish with foil or parchment paper and set aside.

Place the cookies in a food processor and process into crumbs. If you don’t have a food processor, no worries. Put the cookies in a zippered bag and crush them up.

Mix the crumbs with the melted butter, press into the baking dish to form a crust, set aside.

We love these Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars because the filling is so creamy and sweet. These are the perfect dessert to bring to a get together or summer BBQ. Or of course, for when you just want something sweet and delicious!

Do yourself a favor though, use real lemons. Lemon extract or the lemon juice in the bottle is fake and you are going to want fresh lemon juice and lemon zest to get that sweet and tart lemon flavor.
