¼ cup Light Packed Brown Sugar
1 cup Butter, Softened
2 Cups White chocolate morsels
8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1 can (14oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk

½ cup Raspberry Jam
2 TSP of corn starch

Preheat oven to 350, grease a 13 X 9 baking pan.

Combine flour, oats and brown sugar in large bowl. Add butter and mix until crumbly. Stir in morsels. Reserve 2 ½ cups of morsel mixture for topping. With floured fingers, press remaining mixture into pan.

Beat cream cheese in mixer until creamy. Add sweetened milk, lemon and vanilla. Pour over crust. In medium sauce pan, heat up jam, add corn starch and blueberries. Boil for 30 seconds. Let cool down completely. (very important) Spoon over cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle remaining topping over blueberry mixture.
Bake for 35-40 min, or until center is set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Cut into bars.

Tip: Make blueberry topping the day before… and eat it on ice cream or brownies! Down’t like blueberries? Change to cranberries or a chocolate sauce.
