Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

Ingredients

3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup chopped pecans

Filling:

2 – 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

~In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.

~Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda; gradually add to the creamed mixture until blended. Fold in the chocolate chips and pecans.
