Cinnamon Spiked Cheesecake Cookies

Crust:

  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients together. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles course crumbs. Reserve ½ cup. Press the remainder into an oiled 8X8 inch-baking pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven.

Filling:

  • 8 oz. softened cream cheese
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • ½ tsp. vanilla

Beat the softened cream cheese with the honey. Add the remaining ingredients and continue to beat well. Spread over the prepared crust. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Cool in the pan and cut into squares.
