Blueberry Bars

 These are a delight with their cream cheese center, sweet blueberry mixture, and crunch from the coconut and walnuts. Don’t expect them to stick around long!
Oh ya, the little green and blue flecks in the bars themselves because i only had a “Party Chip” cake mix instead of the yellow. Please don’t judge…lol

1 box yellow, french vanilla, or butter cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 eggs
1 8 -oz pkg cream cheese, softened
2 1/2 cups  confectioners sugar
2 1/2 cups blueberry filling  (recipe follows)
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts
In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, 1 egg, and 1/2 cup melted butter. Press into a  buttered  13×9 inch pan.
Beat cream cheese till fluffy. blend in 2 eggs and sugar. Pour over cake mixture.  Spoon pie filling over top, then sprinkle coconut and nuts over that.
Bake 325 for approx 1 hour or until edges are light brown.

Blueberry Filling
3/4 C. white sugar
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoon and 3 teaspoons cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
