Orange And Pecan Cheesecake Bites
These little cheesecake bites give you that yummy cheesecake taste without too much guilt!
Prep Time: 20:00
Cook Time: 00:35
1 stick plus 4 t. softened butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 c. all purpose flour
1 c. finely chopped pecans
cheese cake layer:
2 - 8 oz packages of cream cheese, softened
3/4 c. granulated sugar
4 t milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
the zest of one orange
1/2 the juice of one orange (about c)
coarsely chopped pecans for garnish
1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.
2Beat the butter and brown sugar together in a mixing bowl until fluffy. Add the flour and the chopped pecans to make a stiff dough. Remove a cup of the dough to use on top later. Press the remaining dough into the bottom of the prepared pan.
3Bake for 15 min. Remove from oven.
4While the crust is baking, prepare the cheesecake layer.
5Beat the cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Add the eggs, milk and vanilla until well blended.
6Add the orange zest and the orange juice and beat them in.
7Pour the cheesecake layer over the crust and spread over the entire crust.
8Crumble the reserved crust dough over the top of the cheesecake mixture. Then add a couple of tablespoons of coarsely chopped pecans as well.
9Bake for 35 minutes in the 350 degree oven. Allow to cool before cutting into 32 small squares. Wrap and store in the refrigerator.
A drizzle of melted orange marmalade over these squares makes a pretty presentation.
