Raspberry Cream Cheese Bars

I made these a while back for a family gathering and was asked for the recipe, so here it is. These are great to take to a potluck. The recipe is from the Pierre Country Bakery & Cafe.

In large bowl:
2 c flour
1 1/4 c quick oats
3/4 c brown sugar
1 c butter

-Mix until resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 1 1/2 c of crumb mixture. Press remaining mixture in bottom of a buttered 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

In mixer:
12 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c sugar

-Beat until light and fluffy, then add:

2 large eggs, or 3 medium eggs
2 t fresh lemon juice
1 t vanilla

-Spread cream cheese mixture over cooled, baked crust. Then spread carefully on top of that:

16 oz. raspberry pie filling

-Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Bake 30 minutes or until set. Let cool. Store in fridge.

VARIATION: You may use strawberry, peach, blueberry, cherry, apple, or any other flavor filling you like. Simply delicious!!
