Cookie Countdown Day 8

(Sorry this is late, I was having posting problems yesterday.)

Merry-Cherry Cheesecake Bars

Got these from Grandma while down in Fort Myers.  They are fantastic!

1/3 c. cold butter
1/3 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 c. all-purpose flour
8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 c. sugar
1 egg
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 c. each candied red and green cherries (can substitute 1/4 c. cherry pie filling)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In bowl, cut butter into chunks, add brown sugar and flour.  Mix at low speed.  Reserve 1/2 c. crumb mixture for topping.  Press remaining crumb mixture into 8 in. square pan.  Bake near center of oven rack for 10-12 minutes.  For filling, soften cream cheese and combine all filling ingredients together in a bowl.  Spread filling over crust.  Sprinkle with remaining crumb mix.  Continue baking for 18-20 minutes or until browned.  Cool and store in fridge.
