Recipe by Mom2Rose

These bars are delicious! They have a crumbly topping and a cheesecake-like filling on the inside - what's not to like!

Top Review by komcdonald

I thought I had already reviewed this! My German boyfriend is constantly asking me to make these! Easier than making a whole cheesecake and it tastes delicious. I always leave out the dried fruit, but I do add about a tablespoon of lemon juice to the filling. Last time I made only half of the recipe and it was perfect for a 9 inch pie plate.( I found with a whole batch it was even too much for a 9 x 13 pan and I ended up having to throw some away.) The best part is my hard to please German family- in- law loves it. : )
