I'm looking for a delicious cheesecake bar recipe. I am doing these for a wedding so they need to cut neatly and have good flavour. I willl use fresh blueberries and plan to bake them in the cheesecake (rather than making a blueberry topping) and I would like a relatively plain, nut free base, that won't shatter too much when I cut it! I will be making these ahead. It's for a wedding and I need to make a tester so I thought I'd come here. I need to make about 40 bars.
This recipe looks fairly typical (easy to alter flavours for blueberry):
but this one is gets rave reviews. Sounds a bit heavy to me with all that cream cheese, I would probably lighten it with an egg white or 2. I would like some height on these bars.
Shortbread or graham cracker base?
any tips gratefully received
