      Very simple bar cookie that is very quick to put together. The base layer is very thin when spread in the suggested size pan. It finished as a light, crispy layer but I would suggest either doubling the ingredients for the bottom or using an 8x8 baking pan if you like a thicker base. The cheesecake layer is very plain and not overly sweet. This makes it sort of a blank slate for lots of variations. I made a simple chocolate "glue" with dark chocolate chips and butter and attached a fresh raspberry to each cookie and dusted them with powdered sugar. I could imagine substituting peppermint flavoring for the vanilla at the holidays and topping with crushed peppermint candy or candy canes. They make a nice and easy treat for anytime. Made for ABC Tag on FB July '10.

      These were fantastic! I used almond extract because I was out of vanilla, and everyone who tried these raved. They didn't last long!

      I saw these on Paula's show and knew I needed to make these. I doubled the crust and left the berries and mint off since hubby was taking them to work. They loved them so much I had to give them the recipe. These are wonderful! Thanks for posting.
