Ingredients

Crust:

  • 9 full-sheets graham crackers
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoon salted butter melted

Filling:

  • 8 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 250 g siggi's 0% Vanilla Icelandic Skyr room temperature
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • ½ C granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon matcha + extra for dusting
  • ½ C fresh blueberries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F/163°C.
  • Line a 9" by 9" square baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Add the graham crackers and sugar to a food processor. Pulse intermittently until the crackers are the size of small crumbs. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter while pulsing to incorporate into the crumbs. The texture should resemble slightly damp soil.
  • Transfer the mixture into the baking dish and press down firmly with your hands. Use the back of a measuring cup to flatten the crust evenly.
  • Bake at 325°F/163°C for about 15 minutes, until golden and aromatic. Remove from the oven and let it cool.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, whip together the cream cheese, siggi's Icelandic skyr, and sugar until light and fluffy on medium speed. Lower the speed and add in the eggs one at a time. Stop and scrape the mixture down. Add in the vanilla extract, matcha powder, and continue to mix until homogeneous.
  • Pour in the cheesecake mixture on top of the crust. Give it a tap to release any air bubbles. If there are any bubbles, use a toothpick to gently pop them.
  • Add blueberries on top of the cheesecake layer and place into the oven at 325°F/163°C for 35 minutes, or until the center is slightly jiggly.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool completely. Place into the fridge to chill for at least 3 hours, or overnight.
  • When ready to serve, remove from refrigerator and slice into 16 bars. Dust with additional matcha if you wish.
