Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Microwave butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 to 1-1/2 min. or until melted. Add dry cake mix, 1 egg and cinnamon; beat with mixer until blended. Press 2/3 of the dough onto bottom of prepared pan.
Beat cream cheese and sugar with mixer until blended. Add remaining egg; mix well. Spread over crust; top with fruit. Pinch small pieces of remaining dough between your fingers; press lightly into cream cheese layer.
Bake 45 to 50 min. or until center is almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 1 hour. Use foil handles to lift dessert from pan before cutting into bars.
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
When cutting the bars, wipe the knife occasionally between cuts for cleaner edges.
