  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted

To make the crust:

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9″x 13″ baking pan.
Combine all crust ingredients using a fork or your hands. Press evenly into prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
To make the filling:
Spread blueberry preserves evenly over slightly cooled crust.
Beat cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add lemon juice and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.
