This past week has been super super busy. Besides bringing baby home, my mom also flew out to visit, and I worked evening/night shifts rather than my normal mornings. All this adds up to not a whole lot of cooking, and a lot of eating at Subway.
I got off at a decent hour yesterday, so I figured I would contribute a little bit to the cooking this week and make a delicious dessert. I have been craving this for the past week or so. It's just so light and fluffy and just so different from the normal heavy chocolate infused things we've been having as of late that I just couldn't resist.
It's a fairly simple recipe (as long as you don't have to go back to the store twice in a row for missing ingredients) and makes a great summer dessert.
I adjusted some of the ingredients to make it slightly healthier and it was still great -- all my changes are in italics.
Mix together flour, butter, and nuts like pie crust. Put in bottom of 9x13 pan. Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool.
Beat cream cheese and sugar until fluff. Spread on cooled crust.
