I just made these yesterday - the recipe came in a supermarket flyer. They're very good. I found that they're fragile for a while and do need to sit till cooled completely - even better after refrigeration.
These bars were fabulous! I made them for a party last fall & brought the extras to work - several people who said they didn't like cranberries even thought they were great. The second time I made them I was going from memory (my computer had plunked out on me) and I forgot the white chocolate chips - they were still excellent! (I guess my memory wasn't too bad :)
Made these for Thanksgiving and my family thought the were outstanding. They gobbled up every one. This is a very sweet cheesecake bar. For me, a little went a long way. My family's delight is enough reason for me to make these again. Thanks.
