Cheesecake Cookie Bars
These delicious bars are encompassed in a crumbly top and bottom layer with a creamy cheesecake filling.
- 1/3 cup softened butter
- 1/3 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 1 package cream cheese ((8 oz.))
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 cup gluten free flour (sifted)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl cream the butter and brown sugar together until light and creamy. Add flour and nuts, mix until crumbly. Reserve 1 cup of the mixture for the topping. Press the remainder into the bottom of a ungreased 8 in. square pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly brown. Combine sugar and cream cheese, mix until smooth. Add milk, lemon juice, vanilla and egg. Beat well and spoon over baked crust. Top with reserved mixture. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool and cut into squares.
These bars could also be made with wheat flour.
