  • Use fresh or frozen blueberries. Both fresh and frozen blueberries work well for the topping. If using frozen, there’s no need to thaw them beforehand. To learn ‘How To Keep Blueberries Fresh?’, check out our article.
  • Make sure cream cheese, eggs, and sour cream are at room temperature before you start. This ensures a smoother, more even mixture for your cheesecake layer.
  • Don’t overmix the batter. When adding the eggs, be careful not to overmix as this can introduce too much air and cause the cheesecake to crack during baking.
  • Check for doneness. The cheesecake is done when the edges are set and the middle still has a slight jiggle to it. It will firm up as it cools.
  • Chill completely. Allow the cheesecake bars to chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight if possible. This ensures they are fully set and easier to cut.
  • Feel free to add lemon zest to the blueberry topping for an extra zing, or mix in other berries for a different flavor profile.
  • Keep the bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or freeze for longer storage.

How To Serve Blueberry Cheesecake Bars?

Serving Blueberry Cheesecake Bars is a delightful experience, as their creamy texture and fruity flavor make for a perfect dessert. Here’s how to serve them:

Room Temperature or Chilled:

  • You can serve the cheesecake bars either at room temperature or chilled, based on your preference.
  • If they have been refrigerated, you can take them out 20-30 minutes before serving to let them come to room temperature, or serve them straight from the fridge for a firmer texture.


  • Use a sharp knife to cut the bars. To ensure clean cuts, you can dip the knife in hot water and wipe it dry between slices.


  • Consider garnishing the bars with additional fresh blueberries, a dollop of whipped cream, or a drizzle of blueberry sauce to enhance their appearance and flavor.
  • A sprinkle of powdered sugar or a zest of lemon can also add a nice touch.


  • Use a spatula to carefully lift the bars from the dish and place them on individual plates.
  • Ensure each serving has a visible layer of the crust, cheesecake, and blueberry topping.

Optional Accompaniments:

Storing Leftovers:

  • If there are any leftovers, make sure to store them back in the refrigerator or freezer, following the storage guidelines to maintain their freshness.

How To Store Blueberry Cheesecake Bars?

Proper storage is crucial to maintaining the freshness and flavor of your Blueberry Cheesecake Bars. Here’s how you can store them:


  • Let Them Cool: Before storing, allow the cheesecake bars to cool to room temperature after baking. This prevents condensation inside the storage container, which could make the bars soggy.
  • Use an Airtight Container: Place the cooled bars in an airtight container. If you’re stacking them, place a sheet of parchment paper between each layer to prevent sticking.
  • Refrigerate: Store the container in the refrigerator. The cheesecake bars will stay fresh for up to 5 days when refrigerated.

Freezing (for Longer Shelf Life):

  • Pre-Freeze: Place the cooled cheesecake bars on a baking sheet, ensuring they are not touching, and freeze for 1-2 hours. This helps them maintain their shape.
  • Wrap Individual Bars: Wrap each bar in plastic wrap, making sure they are well-sealed.
  • Use a Freezer-Safe Bag or Container: Place the wrapped bars in a freezer-safe bag or container.
  • Thaw Before Serving: When you’re ready to enjoy them, thaw the cheesecake bars in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.

After refrigerating or freezing, you can serve the cheesecake bars chilled, or let them come to room temperature for a softer texture, depending on your personal preference.

While cheesecake bars can last up to 5 days in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer, they are best enjoyed within the first few days of baking for optimal flavor and texture.
