Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9x13" baking pan. Mix crumbs, powdered sugar, and margarine. With a fork, press mixture evenly into the bottom of greased pan. Set aside.

Cream cheese filling:

2 eggs, beaten

Blend sugar and softened cheese until smooth. Add beaten eggs and beat until smooth. Spread over the crust and bake for 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

Fruit topping

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
