DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°; lightly grease a 9x3 inch baking pan.
  • Make the crust: combine all crust ingredients in a food processor; process until the mixture is crumbly.
  • Set aside 1 cup of the crumbs; press the remaining crumbs into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Bake the crust for 16-18 minutes, until it is golden brown.
  • Make the filling: In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until soft.
  • Add in the sugar and salt; beat until well blended.
  • Stir in the flour, then beat in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Stir in the lime juice, mixing until smooth; pour the filling onto the crust.
  • Bake the bars for 15 minutes; sprinkle with reserved crumbs and bake 10 more minutes, or until set around the edges but still slightly wobbly in the middle.
  • Remove from the oven and cool at room temperature for 1 hour.
  • For easiest slicing, refrigerate for several hours.
