Cheesecake Squares

A miniature version of cheesecake but so easy to make.

Yield: Makes 16 squares.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped nuts

Instructions

Combine flour and brown sugar; cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Set aside 1 cup of mixture and press the remainder into an ungreased 8-inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, combine cream cheese, granulated sugar, egg, milk, lemon rind and juice, and beat well. Spread over baked crust. Combine reserved topping with chopped nuts, and sprinkle over cheese mixture. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes. Cool and cut into squares.

  • I will try it again but I will use a spray to grease the bottom of the pan. I used a glass square 8″ pan and didn’t grease as the recipe stated but the crust was all but impossible to remove. The filling is delicious and it is very easy to make. I plan to double the recipe after I solve the sticking crust.
