Blueberry Cream Cheese Pastry BarsOne of my husband’s favorite treats are blueberry cream cheese danishes, he picks up a box every time we’re at the bakery shop. That’s why I decided to make this Blueberry Cream Cheese Pastry Bars.

These bars are very easy to make.  No need to make pastry dough, not one of my favorite activities, you use refrigerated crescent dough for the pastry.  The pastry is filled with a cream cheese mixture and blueberry pie filling, with this combination how can you go wrong?

I make these bars for dessert and also serve them for breakfast.  They make a great addition to a brunch buffet too!

I like to line my baking pan with parchment paper for easier clean up, but you don’t have to.  Instead of lining the pan with parchment you can spray the pan with cooking oil.
