I tried a new recipe as a part of my holiday baking. It’s a winner, though I think it could be improved with sliced fresh strawberries on top–something that’s not so easy to come by here in December.
Cheesecake bar cookies
1 cup butter
2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Cream these three ingredients and press into a 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
While the crust is baking, beat together the following:
8 ounces cream cheese softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
Pour this mixture over the warm crust and return to the oven. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until set.
