Enjoy and Keep On Making Stuff!
20 Reduced Fat NILLA Wafers, finely crushed (I used 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs)
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cold margarine
1 (8 ounce) package of fat free cream cheese
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons grated lemon peel, divided(I omitted this because all I had was lemon juice)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
2 teaspoons powdered sugar
1.PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees F. Line 8-inch square baking pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan; set aside. Combine wafer crumbs, 1/2 cup flour and the brown sugar in medium bowl. Cut in margarine with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; press firmly onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 15 min.
2.MEANWHILE, beat cream cheese and granulated sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs and 2 Tbsp. flour; mix well. Blend in 1 Tbsp. lemon peel, lemon juice and baking powder; pour over crust.
3.BAKE 25 to 28 min. or until center is set. Cool completely. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and remaining 2 Tbsp. grated lemon peel just before cutting into squares to serve. Store leftover squares in refrigerator.
when they are cooled a tad you won't be able to resist putting a couple on a plate and enjoying them with an icey glass of milk! YUMM!!!
