TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:9 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
  • FILLING:
  • 2 packages (one 8 ounces, one 3 ounces) cream cheese, softened

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • SAUCE:
  • 1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam

Directions

  • 1. In a food processor, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar and walnuts; cover and process until nuts are finely chopped. Add butter; cover and pulse just until mixture is crumbly. Press into an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 9-11 minutes or until set and edges are lightly browned.
  • 2. Meanwhile, for filling, in a food processor, combine the filling ingredients; cover and process until blended. Pour over crust. Bake for 14-18 minutes or until center is just set. Cool on a wire rack. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • 3. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat jam on high for 15-20 seconds or until warmed; gently toss with blueberries. Cut dessert into squares; top with blueberry sauce. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 9 servings.
