I know…more blueberries! We have all that blueberry jam that Matt made this past weekend. He opened a jar up and it is amazing! Best I have ever had. Especially on toast with lots of butter.
So then I kept thinking, “I bet there is something I could make with that blueberry jam.” So then I started thinking about cream cheese and how good it would be if I mixed them together. And then when I looked in my baking cabinet, I saw that I had a pouch of oatmeal cookie mix. So why not try to make another cheesecake? I know there are plenty of cheesecake recipes out there but I wanted to come up with something with ingredients I already had.
I created this recipe by adapting two different recipes into the dessert I was looking to make. I used the Biscoff Cheesecake I made a few weeks ago as a guideline as well as this recipe from Kraft Foods.
Oatmeal Cookie Blueberry Cheesecake:
- 1 pouch Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie Mix
- ½ cup (1 stick) cold butter
- 2 packages 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 ½ tablespoons blueberry jam
Grease an 8×8 square pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
To make the crust and topping, combine the oatmeal cookie mix and butter so it becomes a crumble. Press a little less than half of the mixture on the bottom of the pan. (I did not measure this out but eyeballed the thickness of the crust.) Set aside the remaining cookie crumble. Bake the crust for 10 minutes or until it starts to turn a golden brown. Cool completely.
Using a mixer, cream the cream cheese. Add the sugar and vanilla and blend. Stir in the blueberry jam. Add the mixture to a cooled crust.
Evenly sprinkle the remaining cookie crumble on top of the cream cheese mixture. Again, this is something I just eyeballed to what I thought I would like. I didn’t want it to be too thick so I did not use all of the cookie crumble. Bake for about 40 minutes or until the cheesecake is set. Allow to chill for at least 3 hours.
I may have made the crust a bit too thick or cooked it a little too long (that’s why I said to do it 10 minutes, not 15!). It was a little tough to cut through, but once I did, it was really good. You could either eat it like a bar or with a fork, depending on how big you want your piece :).
Put whipped cream on top if you choose. Enjoy!
