This is rich but yummy. Easy to make and no springform pan to mess with! And, like the gooey butter cookies, you can vary the flavoring or the cake base. I like mine with an amaretto flavor.

    Mix base ingredients well. Spread dough in bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of the pan. Set aside.

    For the filling: With an electric mixer, whip the cheese until creamy, beat in eggs and then the condensed milk and vanilla.
