Made these for Thanksgiving for a change of pace and totally loved them. I am not a huge cheesecake fan, but these weren't too dense and the cranberry was a perfect compliment! I added just a few dried cranberries to the cranberry mixture, just for a bit more texture. The only issues I had at all with the recipe was the bottom crust was a bit too crumbly, maybe melting the butter or omitting the chips would of helped. Also, I would of enjoyed it a little more if the chips in the top layer actually melted a little more. However, it was great and will be a regular now.

Sorry I didn't really like this. It was way to dry for my taste. Im pretty sure i would like it a lot better with more Cranberries and cream cheese and less oats.

Excellent recipe. Instead of white chocolate morsels try to fine grate white chocolate bar.

Nov 18, 2010 are to blame :-) I think we each, hubby and I, gained 5 lbs. by eating one inch piece of this amazing dessert!!! Fantastic. But, you must have a crowd to share it with or I will feel sorry for you. I must bring pieces to neighbors to help us eat this delicious concoction.

These were awesome! So very easy to make for a novice cook like myself and extra delicious! I served them at a get together about a week ago and everyone was impressed. Already getting requests to make them again for our next get together which I most certainly will do. Thank you for the recipe

My family liked it but my 14yr old made the comment that we were all thinking..."I wish it had more cheesecake in it"! Yes, I think doubling up on the cream cheese, maybe leaving the condensed milk the same only because these bars are pretty sweet with the cranberry and white chocolate morsels. It was a very tasty dish tho!
