Beat until well mixed. Pour filling over hot, partially baked crust. Continue baking for 23 to 25 minutes or until top is golden brown. Cool completely.

TIP: To cut bars into diamonds, make diagonal cuts across the length of the pan. Make a second set of cuts parallel to the short side of the pan.
