These cheesecake squares are AMAZING! I would give you 10 stars if I could! The last review said they were a little "rich". Well yes, they are rich, but what do you expect with all these yummy ingredients. These are the perfect indulgance and I loved them. My hubby ate two squares in about 10 minutes! I just topped them with Whipped Cream, no pecans. Mmmm... perfect in every way! P.S. the pecan crust is to die for.

This tasted like a coffee latte. The crust and pecan on top really added to the flavor. A little rich but good. Thanks Sharon 123. Bullwinkle
