Cheesecake Squares

Recipe by TigerJo

I love this recipe because it got me an "A" one week in my "Newspaper In Classroom" class back in high school. If we made a recipe we found in the newspaper, and the teacher liked it, he'd grade us well. My teacher's questionable grading practices aside, this is a great recipe!

This was just great! So easy and great taste! I subbed pecans for walnuts, due to a personal perference, and have since used this crust in other pie recipes that call for graham cracker crust - much better! I gave some to to my SIL and her family loved it too. Thank you for a great desert and super great crust!!
