  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in 1 cup of the pretzel crumbs. Press cookie dough evenly in bottom of pan. If dough is sticky, use floured fingers. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER PRESSING DOUGH IN PAN WITH FLOURED FINGERS.) Bake 5 minutes. Place 2 cups blueberries evenly on crust.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and lemon peel with electric mixer on medium-high speed about 1 minute or until well blended. Add eggs; beat about 2 minutes or until well blended and creamy. Gently spoon evenly over blueberries.
  • 4
    Bake 27 to 33 minutes or until set at least 2 inches from edge of pan but center still jiggles slightly when moved (it will become firm during refrigeration). Cool 1 hour. Refrigerate about 1 1/2 hours or until chilled and firm. Cut into 8 rows by 3 rows.
  • 5
    Spoon 1 teaspoon of the remaining pretzel crumbs and a few blueberries over each serving.

Expert Tips

  • Line pan with foil to make cutting bars easier and cleanup a snap.
  • To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper and place on microwavable plate. Microwave uncovered on Medium (50%) 30 seconds; let stand 1 to 2 minutes.
