Lemon-Blueberry Crumb Bars

1/2 cup butter
1 pkg.  (2-layer size) white or yellow cake mix
2 eggs, divided
2 pkg.  (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp.  zest and 3 Tbsp. juice from 1 lemon
2-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
HEAT oven to 350ºF.
LINE 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Microwave butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 to 1-1/2 min. or until melted. Add cake mix and 1 egg; beat with mixer until well blended. Press 2/3 of the mixture onto bottom of prepared pan.
BEAT cream cheese and sugar with mixer until well blended. Add remaining egg, zest and juice; mix well. Pour over crust; top with berries. Pinch small pieces of the remaining cake mix mixture between your fingers; press lightly into cream cheese layer.
BAKE 55 min. to 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely. Use foil handles to lift dessert from pan before cutting into bars. Keep refrigerated. 

I think these would be great with chocolate chip instead of blueberries. I'll probably try that next time!
