  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • Bake on center rack of oven for 15-20 minutes, until lightly browned.
  • Using a mixer, beat cream cheese on high until creamy.
  • Mix in eggs, one at a time until combined. Add sugar, cream, lemon juice and salt, mixing well.
  • Add flour and mix until combined. Gently fold in blueberries, reserving about ½ cup for the top.
