Bluebarry Jam-Cream Cheese Bars

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups oats (regular or quick)


  • 1 & 1/2 cups blueberry jam
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a 9" x 13" x 2" baking pan. Line with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Lightly grease the lining.
  2. Place the flour, brown sugar, sugar, baking powder, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until combined (about 4 pulses). Add the butter and pulse until mixture is crumbly. Add the oats and pulse until blended.
  3. Set aside 1 & 1/2 cups of oat mixture.
  4. Press the remaining oat mixture evenly into the bottom of prepared pan. Bake 10 minutes.
  5. Spread the jam evenly on top of the crust, leaving about 1/4-inch border around the edges.
  6. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract until well-blended and smooth.
  7. Drop small dollops (a teaspoonful or less) of the cream cheese mixture on top of the preserves. Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture over the top of the bars.
  8. Bake 30-35 minutes, or until bars are golden brown and set.
  9. Cool completely before cutting into bars. Simple to make and equally good served warm or at room temperature.
