Cheesecake Squares

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Tamara Jae

Don't have a Springform Pan? That's Okay, use a rectangular pan with this recipe. Even though the cooking time is 45 minutes, the cake does have to sit for 9 hours.

I tried this recipe for thanksgiving and was very diappointed the bars were very thin.Not what I had in mind. Was very similiar in my ingredients for my springform pan which ihave been using for years with much succes and compliments and since I was serving more people thought the amount would be perfect.
