Cheesecake Bars

O.k. it has been a while since I have posted and I know that I am a little bit late for a theme but better late than never! My theme for this week is anything that has cream cheese in it. I made these amazing bars the other day for my family. Enjoy!

2/3 c. finely crushed graham crackers
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1/4 c. sugar
1/3 c. butter or margarine, melted
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/3 c. sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel
1 T. lemon juice
2 T. finely crushed graham crackers

Stir together 2/3 c. graham crackers, flour, pecans and sugar. Add melted butter; mix until crumbly. Pat into ungreased 9x9-inch backing pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Cream together cream cheese and sugar. Add eggs, lemon peel and lemon juice; mix well. Pour over baked layer. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Sprinkle with the 2 T. graham crackers. Cool; cut into bars. Store in refrigerator. Recipe can be doubled.
