Cranberry Cheesecake Bars

Cranberry Cheesecake Bars

2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
1 cup quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 package (8 ounces) fat-free cream cheese
1 can (14 ounces) fat-free sweetened condensed milk
4 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 can (16 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
2 tablespoons cornstarch

In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, oats, brown sugar and butter; mix until crumbly. Press 2-1/2 cups of the crumb mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the milk, egg whites, vanilla and remaining flour. Spoon over prepared crust. In a small bowl, combine the cranberry sauce and cornstarch. Spoon over cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining crumb mixture. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until the center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack before cutting.
Yield: 3 dozen.
