In Praise of Theme Desserts

I am inordinately pleased when I get on top of something, domestic-wise.

Voila!

I present the Presidents' Day theme dessert! Cherry Cheesecake bars! (Cherry = George Washington. Get it?!!!!)

Now resting peacefully TWO DAYS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE in the refrigerator. I must share the triumph with you. And the recipe.

Ingredients
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, melted

Preparation
MIX cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; mix just until blended. Mix crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 8- or 9-inch baking pan.
POUR batter over crust.
BAKE at 350°F for 40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool.

Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight. Top with cherries. Cut into bars.
