Raspberry Cheesecake Bars

I made these for institute today and was asked to put them on here, so here they are!

Raspberry Cheesecake Bars

1 pouch (17.5 oz) sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup firm butter
2 packages (8 oz each) softened cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 can (21 oz) raspberry pie filling

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray bottom and sides of 9x13 pan with cooking spray.

2. Pour sugar cookie mix in a big bowl. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly and coarse. Set aside 1 1/2 cups of mix for later and press the remaining crumbs in the bottom of the 9x13 pan. Bake for 10 minutes.

3. Put cream cheese, sugar, flour, vanilla, and egg in a large bowl. Beat together with an electric mixer (medium speed) until smooth.

4. Spread cream cheese mix evenly over crust. Spoon raspberry pie filling evenly over the cream cheese. Take remaining 1 1/2 cups of unbaked crumbs and sprinkle over the top.

5. Bake 35-40 minutes or until crumbs on top are lightly golden brown. Cool 30 minutes, refrigerate about 2 hours to chill.

6. Cut into bars. Store covered in fridge. Makes 24 bars.

Winger's Chicken

So apparently there's a restaurant called Winger's.  Never been there, but I acquired a knock-off recipe for their chicken.  Bonus... it's super super easy.

1 Package of Tyson's Breaded Chicken Strips 
6 T Frank's Red Hot Sauce
4 T Water
1 1/2 C Brown Sugar


In saucepan heat Hot Sauce, Water, and Brown Sugar until the sugar dissolves completely.  

Place the Chicken in a 9 x13 pan and pour sauce over it.  Stick it in the oven for the time and temp on the Tyson's bag.  I think it's 350 for 18-20 min.  Super Easy! Super yummy.  It's good by itself but we make it into wraps.  You can put honey mustard dressing or ranch if you want... or no dressing and it's still good.

Frozen Fruit Salad

Hey you asked for it, so here it is! This is the easiest side to make.

Frozen Fruit
Cream Cheese
Cool Whip

Chop up the frozen fruit. Add cream cheese, yogurt, and/or cool whip. Some I hear have even added sugar if you want to make it sweeter.
