  • Heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Line 9-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides; spray with cooking spray. Mix corn starch and water until blended.
  • Bring cherries, lemon juice and 1/4 cup granulated sugar to boil in medium saucepan on medium-high heat, stirring frequently; simmer on medium heat 5 min. or until cherries are softened, stirring occasionally. Add corn starch mixture; cook and stir 1 to 2 min. or until thickened. Remove from heat.
  • Mix flour, oats, brown sugar and baking soda in large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture forms coarse crumbs; press half onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 10 min. Meanwhile, mix cream cheese, egg and remaining granulated sugar until blended.
  • Pour cream cheese mixture over crust; top with cherry mixture and remaining crumb mixture.
  • Bake 25 to 30 min. or until golden brown. Cool completely. Use foil handles to lift dessert from pan before cutting into bars.


Omit corn starch, water, cherries, lemon juice and the 1/4 cup granulated sugar used to make the cherry mixture. Use 1 cup canned cherry pie filling to prepare this recipe instead.
