      I made these tonight for dessert. I left out the pecans since I didn't have any, but next time I will use some type of nut. They really need a salty element to balance out the sweetness. I would strongly recommend using salted nuts or sprinkling a bit of salt on the crust before pouring the cream cheese mixture over it. I sprinkled these with a couple of pinches of salt afterward, which might sound weird, but it worked! I agree with the previous review that these are more of a cheescake dessert and less of a "bar" in the the conventional sense of the word, but whatever they're called, they're very good!

      These were really good, but they're less like a bar and more like a cheescake dessert. I made them to take on a hike, and they didn't prove to be very portable (although nobody minded messy fingers from scooping up crumbs because they were soooooo yummy. I had to bake them about 15 minutes longer than the recipe said, and I skipped the pecans, as I didn't have any. Still yummy though, will make again!
