Directions

Preheat over to 350.
-
Mix the melted margarine and graham crumbs in 13x9-inch baking pan. Press firmly onto bottom of pan. Refrigerate until ready to use. (this will help later when spreading the next layer.)
-
Beat cream cheese in large bowl with electric mixer on medium until creamy. Add sugar, eggs and vanilla; beat until well blended. Set aside.
-
Stir jam in jar until softened. Spread evenly onto crust. Sprinkle bluberries onto jam layer. Top evenly with cream cheese mixture.
-
Bake 30-40 min. (took closer to 40 on my oven) or until slightly puffed. Cool completely in pan.
-
Cut into 24 bars. Store any leftovers in a tightly covered container in the fridge up to 3 days.
-
** Next time I will experiment with a lighter margarine and only 1 egg plus egg beaters for the second egg.
