Well, my good camera died, so I am using my old camera and am amazed at the difference in the quality of the picture. This recipe is one we are bringing to a church picnic tonight. I hope it's a hit, but if it's not than that means more for me. I ate one square and they are rich and creamy with a nutty crust. Loved it!
Honey Cheesecake Bars
1/3 cup Butter or margarine
1 cup Flour (used all whole wheat this time)
1/3 cup brown sugar (used organic sugar)
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup honey
2 Tablespoons Milk
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup fruit pie filling or jelly
In small bowl, cut butter into flour and sugar until crumbly. Mix in nuts. Press dough into lightly greased, 9x13 inch square baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth and then add the honey and egg. Beat again until completely combined. Add the milk, lemon, juice, and vanilla extract. Remove crust from oven, pour filling over crust; top with pie filling or jelly. Stir slightly to create swirl pattern. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes or until set. Cool and cut into 2-inch squares.
