  • Heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Line 9-inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides; spray with cooking spray. Mix cornstarch 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 cornstarch 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.

Size Wise

The oatmeal-brown sugar crust and streusel topping team up with the sweet cherries to make this fruity dessert a great treat to share with friends and family.

Shortcut

Omit cornstarch, 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.
