Ingredients

  • Crust
  • ½ cup Roche Bros. organic pecans
  • 1½ cups Food Club all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup Food Club pure granulated sugar
  • 1 cup cold Food Club unsalted butter (2 sticks), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons Roche Bros. whole milk
  • Filling
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened and cut into small pieces
  • 2 Roche Bros. large eggs
  • ¾ cup Food Club pure granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Glaze
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Roche Bros. whole milk
  • Green, purple and/or yellow colored sugar

DIRECTIONS

  1. Prepare Crust: Preheat oven to 350°. Line 13 x 9-inch glass or ceramic baking dish with nonstick aluminum foil so that foil extends about 2 inches over short sides of dish. In bowl of food processor with knife blade attached, process nuts until finely ground. Add flour and sugar, and pulse until combined. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles wet sand. Add milk and pulse until mixture begins to stick together. Transfer nut mixture to prepared baking dish; with hands, firmly press mixture into bottom of pan to form an even layer.
  2. Prepare Filling: In large bowl, with mixer on medium speed, beat cream cheese, eggs, sugar, lemon zest, vanilla extract and cinnamon 3 minutes or until smooth. Pour filling over prepared crust, spreading in an even layer. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until crust is golden brown, filling is set and knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare Glaze: In small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Immediately pour glaze over filling once it’s removed from the oven. With back of large spoon or off set spatula, evenly spread glaze over filling; immediately sprinkle with colored sugars in decorative pattern. Cool completely on wire rack. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours. Using overhanging sides of foil, lift cake bar out of dish; cut into approximately 2¼-inch squares. Cover and refrigerate up to 3 days.
