I stumbled upon this recipe for a last minute pie contest we were going to enter in. We didn't enter it because it was too hot out and we thought it might not taste as good warm.
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
3/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar
3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix crumbs, butter and 3 tablespoons sugar; press firmly onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking pan.
Beat cream cheese, 3/4 cup sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; mix just until blended. Pour over crust.
Bake 30 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight. Cut into 32 bars. Decorate with gels and sprinkles to resemble presents. Store leftover bars in refrigerator.
