Easy Cheesecake Bars. This no-fail cheesecake bar recipe is the perfect alternative to the classic dessert! In just 45 minutes you have perfect bars ready to serve!
The truth is I have made this recipe time and time again.
I love classic cheesecake but it can be fickle and time consuming. These bars are basically no-fail.
They taste divine as is or can be jazzed up with your favorite topping! Try a spoonful of jam, pie filling, chocolate sauce, or even fresh fruit! You really cannot go wrong with these:

Everything starts with the crust.
I use graham crackers with just a touch of cinnamon for a little twist. Press it into your pan and top with creamy filling.
After that you just bake and chill. These beauties cut and come out of the pan perfectly and are always a hit for parties or dinners.
Quick confession, sometimes when it is late at night, and one or two of these are still in the fridge, I indulge in a blueberry version.
Put one tablespoon of frozen blueberries in a bowl, sprinkle with just a touch of sugar, and heat until warmed.
Using the back of a spoon press on the berries to release some juice and pour over the top of one bar. It’s blueberry cheesecake bliss.
