Mmm mmm Monday~

Whats a girl to do when its 112 degrees outside ...why you bake inside as well! This is a pretty tasty/easy treat.Butterscotch Cheesecake Bars
1 (12-ounce) package butterscotch flavored morsels
1/3 cup margarine or butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (crumbs not chunks like I did lol)
1 cup chopped nuts (any kind, I used pecans)
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (14-ounce) can of Sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 for a glass dish) In a saucepan melt the morsels and the margarine...stir in the graham cracker crumbs and nuts. Press half of the mixture firmly onto the bottom of a greased 13x9-inch baking pan. In a large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy, then add the condensed milk, vanilla and egg. Mix well. Pour into the prepared pan, top with the remaining crumb mixture. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool to room temperature, chill before cutting into bars. Refrigerate leftovers...not that there will be any~
I think next time I try this recipe, I will try vanilla wafers instead of the graham crackers... and also I am thinking I'd like to try chocolate chips instead of the butterscotch.....

You are a very brave woman to bake while it's baking -- I try not to turn on the oven if it's above 80 degrees! But, these look like they were worth it! Yum!
