The cream cheese mixture is soo yummy on these cream cheese squares...it's fun to lick the bowl! The crust layer tastes like a crescent cookie with pecans inside. Really buttery and flaky.
When the crust is completely cooled I add the cream cheese filling on top of the crust and spread evenly. Then I top that with cherry pie filling OR chocolate instant pudding and refrigerate for a few hours until it sets up.
This is a wonderful, refreshing dessert....cherry cheesecake squares....
OR Chocolate cheesecake squares....either one is a favorite of mine....
