Fourth of July Treat!

Need a last minute idea for the 4th?  How about Mini Cheese Cake bites with strawberries & blueberries?  They make a wonderful red, white & blue dessert that the whole family will enjoy!  I challenge you to eat just one!

Merry Cheese Cakes

1/3 C butter, softened
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C chopped walnuts

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 C granulated sugar
1 egg
2 T milk
2 T lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla
Pie Filling (cherry, strawberry, blueberry)

Preheat oven to 350.
Combine first 3 ingredients (do not cream butter first).  Beat with mixer at low speed until particles are fine.  Stir in nuts.  Reserve 1 cup of mixture; put remainder in ungreased 8" square glass dish.  Bake 8 - 10 miutes, until lightly browned.  Remove from oven.
In small bowl combine filling ingredients & blend until smooth.  Spread over crust.  Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
Return to oven for 25 - 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
Cool & cut into squares.  Top with pie filling & serve.
