Cherry Jubilee Cheesecake Bars

I made this recipe for Valentine's and we thought they were so yummy! Even better is that they are so so so easy. I'll be making them again tonight for my sister's baby shower since she's having a girl and they are pink!

(you can pretty much substitute the Cherry flavor with any cake & frosting combo...strawberry, lemon, etc)

1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® cherry chip cake mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened ( Note: to cut out fat, I only used 11 oz. instead of 16 oz. and I used Fat Free cream cheese. They still turned out great.)
1 container Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy cherry frosting
3 eggs

1. Heat oven to 325°F. In large bowl, beat dry cake mix and butter with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly; reserve 1 cup. In bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan, press remaining crumbly mixture.
2. In same bowl, beat cream cheese and frosting with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in eggs until blended. Pour over crust; sprinkle with reserved crumbly mixture.
3. Bake about 45 minutes (about 42 minutes for dark or nonstick pan) or until set; cool completely. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours until chilled. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.

High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): In step 1, prebake the crust 10 minutes. In step 3, bake about 50 minutes.
