To make the topping:

  1. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and lemon juice together. In a small saucepan, bring strawberries, Splenda Stevia Sweetener, and water to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until strawberries start to release their juices and break down, about 10 minutes. Stir in cornstarch mixture and cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Transfer mixture to food processor and blend until smooth. Let cool to room temperature.

To make the crust:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×9-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line baking dish with parchment paper sling, pushing parchment into corners and up sides of pan. In a medium bowl, mix wafer crumbs, vegetable oil spread, and Splenda Stevia Sweetener until combined.
  2. Press wafer mixture evenly into bottom of pan. Bake until light golden brown, about 10-15 minutes. Set aside.

To make the bars:

  1. In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese and Splenda Stevia Sweetener together until smooth, about 3-4 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until combined, about 3 minutes. Spread cream cheese mixture into an even layer over the prepared crust.
  2. Bake until center is set, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until firm. Remove from pan. Slice into 16 rectangles. Transfer strawberry mixture to a piping bag and cut off a small tip. Pipe lines on a Canadian maple leaf in the center and bars resembling vertical red stripes on the Canadian flag. Serve and enjoy.
