      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 11 x 17 inch pan (jelly roll) with cooking spray. Combine first two ingredients with 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar in a food processor. Pulse until crumbly. Spread crust evenly on the bottom of a sheet pan and press down lightly. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. In a large bowl, use a mixer to beat all filling ingredients together. Pour them over hot crust.
