Limey Bars

Limey Bars

1 1/2 cups pecan pieces
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup rice flour
2 Tbsp melted butter or margerine
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup lime juice

Blend pecan pieces in a food processor or blender until crumbly. Mix with powdered sugar, rice flour and melted butter. Pat into the bottom of a 9x9 in pan. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually add sweetened condensed milk, mixing until smooth. Add lime juice. Pour over crust. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until just set. Cool 30 minutes, and then chill.
This is another crust you can use in place of a graham cracker crust. The nutty flavor is a little different, although very good. I wanted to add coconut to the crust, but couldn't find it. If I had, I would use about 1/3 cup.
*In this picture, the bars are overcooked because I didn't hear the timer all the way upstairs. They would not normally have a browned top.
Do you like that I posted them anyways?
