Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray; set aside. Place 1-3/4 cups of the cereal in food processor; process until finely crushed. Mix with margarine; press onto bottom of prepared pan. Set aside.
  2. Beat Neufchatel cheese and sugar with electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Blend in flour, baking powder, orange peel and juice; pour over crust.
  3. Bake 25 to 30 min. or until center is set. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cereal; press gently into top of dessert to secure. Cool completely. Cover and refrigerate several hours or until chilled. Cut into squares to serve. Store leftovers in refrigerator.

Tips and Suggestions

Special Extra: Sprinkle with 2 tsp. powdered sugar just before serving.

Variation: For added crunch, bake crust 8 min. before topping with the cream cheese batter. Bake 25 to 30 min. or until center of filling is set. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cereal. Continue as directed.

Nutrition Bonus: The fortified cereal makes these creamy squares a good source of iron.
