Step 3: Now comes the exciting part. Creating the cheesecake layer! In another bowl whip the cream cheese until it becomes fluffy. Add in some Cool Whip confectioners sugar, vanilla extract, and lemon juice while blending everything together until smooth and creamy. Spread this mixture over your chilled crust.
Step 4: Lastly take your chilled blueberry topping from earlier. Spoon it generously over the cheesecake layer. Now place your creation back, into the refrigerator, for 3 to 4 hours to allow everything to set perfectly before slicing into this delectable treat.
