    • 1 (8 ounce) packets cream cheese, softened
    • 1 egg

    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  2. In a medium bowl blend thoroughly butter, brown sugar and flour with a fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Put 1 cup of the mixture aside for topping.

  1. Hi Tricia:

    I have been thinking about you lately. I had no idea where you were and have
    missed you. I love your blog -good job. You sound as though you have many amazing
    things happening in your life.

    We are still a close knit group at I.A.G. As the vice president since Oct. 2016
    I am inviting you back to our group for a visit. We are always looking for writers to present
    and I would welcome you breathlessly if you could kick off our year in September
    with a reading of one of your most recent or most favoured works. Let
    me know. I will give you my email: sunflower4fiction@telus.net.

    My newest book entitled Naked on the Inside is at Chapters – a murder mystery. Talk Soon
