My husband’s daughter gave this recipe to him and I would like to share it with you. It is a square, and if you are a cheesecake lover, you will love it.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1/3 cup melted butter, not margarine
- 1 8 oz. pkg of Philadelphia cream cheese
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp. lime juice
- 2 tbsp. cream
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla
Mix brown sugar, flour and nuts in a large bowl. Stir in the melted butter and mix until light and crumbly in your hands. Remove 1 cup of this and set aside. Put the rest in a 8 inch square pan and pat it smooth. Bake for 15 minutes.
Beat cream cheese until smooth and add the sugar. Beat in the egg, lime juice, cream and vanilla. Pour onto the baked crust. Top with the reserved crumbs and return to the oven to bake for another 25 minutes. Cool thoroughly.
Cut into squares and serve with fresh berries and, if you wish, whipped cream….oh my! did I say that?
