Almond Cheesecake Bars

My friend Brandi likes cheesecake, so today for our lunch (yummy chili, thanks B) I made these for our dessert. I found them on a food blog, and tweaked slightly. They turned out very yummy and were all gone from the plate by the end of the day.
1 cup ap flour
1/3 cup brown sugar (packed)
6 T unsalted butter, softened
2 pinches salt
8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg, room temperature
4 T amaretto, or almond extract
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 T whole natural almonds, chopped

Blend first four ingredient, coursely. Take out 3/4 cup to save for topping. Press into greased and foiled 8×8 pan. Mix cream cheese mixture till all smooth. Chop almonds and combine with the rest of the topping – sprinkle on top. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Let cool completely. Cut into about 24 bars or so – however big you want them.
