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.

This got rave reviews! Awesome texture and taste. Use MRs. Richardson's caramel sauce perfect!

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!

This was my first attempt at homemade cheesecake I was a little afraid to try it but after reading the reviews I decided to go for it and am glad I did. I baked mine 15 min longer than called for and it came out perfect. Bunco girls could not get enough of it. My Mom did not care for it but she likes things that are sweet which this cake is not. It is perfect melt in your mouth subtle rich.
