Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

I have had this recipe since the Summer of 2005 from Kraft Foods.  I love cheesecake and these hand-held bars are convenient for an outdoor setting.  Prep time and cooking time are both about 30 minutes.  I took these camping last weekend and shared them around the campfire.  I wrapped the leftovers and froze them individually to enjoy at a later date.  Eventually I would like to try to make these delicious bars with raspberries or blackberries.  I also recommend chilling the crust before adding the jam as outlined in the recipe instructions.
