I halved this recipe and was disappointed with the thickness of the bars. I also thought that these were just ok not really the cheesecake flavor I was seeking. The recipe was saved for me because I used crushed homemade pnut butter cookies for the crust and after tasting the mediocre filling I topped it with strawberry jam and fresh whipped cream. Read More

3 days later and I'm STILL getting people RAVING about these - no joke. I accidentally deleted the photos I took but I chose to swirl the homemade caramel sauce into the bars. This resulted in some minor "cracking" at the edges from the caramel swirls but what it did for the flavor certainly made up for it! I chose to use all cracker crumbs instead of pecans. These were very substantial--a thicker than normal cheesecake portion--which made for an even prettier bar! YUM! Crowd-pleaser! Read More

I only had three boxes of regular cream cheese so I added 8oz of honey nut cream cheese to substitute. It worked great! They came out well. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
