Country Cheesecake Bars - Garfield...Recipes with Cattitude Review and Giveaway!

I do believe that this cookbook has to be one of the cutest cookbooks that Gooseberry Patch has published!
Garfield is an all-time favorite cat from years past...but he seems to be just as popular now. I can tell you one thing...he still has the same attitude he's always had, and his love for good food hasn't changed either!

This cookbook has more of the tried and true recipes that Gooseberry Patch is famous for.
If the cover doesn't convince you, the table of contents will.

Breakfast is Served...Time To Get Up!

First Lunch, Then a Catnap

Country Cheesecake Bars

According to Garfield, dieting is a sickness..and cheesecake is the cure!
Top each bar with a spoonful of cherry pie filling
for an extra-special treat!

2/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp lemon zest
4 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a bowl, mix buter, brown sugar flour and nuts until crumbly.
Set aside 2 cups of mixture for topping.
Press remaining mixture into the bottom of a greased 13x9 baking pan.
Bake at 325* for 15 minutes; cool.

In a separate bowl, blend together remaining ingredients; pour into baked crust.
Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
Bake for an additional 25 minutes, until set and topping is golden.
Cover and refrigerate for about one hour; cut into bars.
Makes 2 to 3 dozen.
