      This was pretty yummy, even though I made many changes. Firstly, I used walnuts instead of pecans, and I had nothing left to use for topping!I baked the base at 170 degrees C for 20 minutes (it wasn't brown at all), whisked the cream cheese filling by hand, used 2 egg whites (substitute, actually - I ran out of eggs), 1 tsp vanilla, and crushed more walnuts on top instead of using M&M baking bits. Then I let it bake in my oven at 180 degrees for 1/2 hour more, letting it cool inside for about 4 hours. Then I cut them up into 18 bars and promptly ate 2. YUMMY!thanks for this recipe that even a bird-brained (like me) could finish in 45 minutes!

      These were delicious and bery easy to make. The only change I made was when I went to grab my pecans, realized that someone used them all. I subbed with honey roasted cashews. Yummmmmm
