BEAT cream cheese and sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in flour and lemon juice. Pour over crust; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.

This recipe is easy for the kids to make and have fun doing it too! We all loved it and was not as difficult as cheesecake but yet just as yummy!

Easy and Tasty

This is a quick and easy recipe to make when you need something quick and easy! The cheesecake isn't too sweet to combat with the taste of the butterscotch. The walnuts add a nice touch.

Wonderful!

I have made these numerous times through the years; lost the recipe and now I've found it again here! They are absolutely delicious; a nice change from bars that tend to be too sweet. These are just right. Always a big hit when I bring them along to parties. Super flavor, wonderful texture, simple to make! I store them in the refigerator.

I made these for breakfast one weekend morning when it was a little cool. They were a big hit with my teenage boys, so I will most likely be making them again.

Tasty Treats!!

by L. Leslie , Lake Jackson, TX on Nov. 2005

I went by the book here... except one small substitution: I used 2 teaspoons vanilla extract instead of lemon juice. And the bars turned out PERFECT!! My husband ate nearly the whole batch in one day... thank God he has a high metabolism!

Wonderful taste

I found this recipe easy to do. It had a wonderful butterscotch taste. Also loved the fact it made a big pan full.

Better now

I made this just like the recipe said to. My family didn't care for them. Then I made them and put some coconut in the cream cheese and now they are a favorite of the family.
