    These are so dreadfully delicious! We call them Interstate 45 bars (it's an old family recipe handed down by my grandmother). Instead of using all powdered sugar, I used 1 cup of powdered and 1 cup of packed brown sugar and added 1 tsp of vanilla. I also sifted a little powdered sugar on top after they came out of the oven. They are rich and sooo good with a tall glass of milk. Thanks for sharing Charlene.  -  08 Jun 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is super!! I took some raspberries, crushed them and mixed with a small amount of the cheese mix. I then swirled this into the rest of the batter and my daughter (who loves raspberries) was crazy about these.  -  12 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love these gooey bars! I have a recipe very similar to this one. I got it from a co-worker after she brought some to a cook-out we had. I could not stop eating them. I add 1 tsp. of vanilla to the cream cheese mixture. It gives it a little something extra. All I can say is this is a little slice of heaven!!!  -  12 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
