This is a favorite cheesecake bar recipe. One that you can prepare and have a variety of toppings that your guest can build their own cheesecake. Toppings such as nuts, chocolate, carmel sauce, strawberry sauce, ice cream topping, whip cream etc. **RS: Pillsbury

I used this recipe to make a copy cat of the Cheesecake Factory's White chocolate raspberry cheesecake... Instead of graham crackers I used 20 oreos (filling removed) the first time. This time around I wanted to try a thicker crust so I crushed 30. White chocolate chips on top of the crust then layered thinned, seedless rasp. preserves with this wonderful batter!! This is definitely my go to cheesecake recipe!! Just right!!!

I made these for my mom for Mother's Day & we LOVED them! The other reviews were right, they aren't overly sweet. They're just right. It comes out rich & creamy, super easy to make! The recipe makes a really thin crust in a 13x9 so doubling the crust wouldn't hurt. We didn't use any toppings, it's perfect alone. Thanks!

Thanks, V, for an excellent and easy recipe. I made this for a "finger food" party, and it went over very well. I cut it in about 1 1/2" squares. The teenagers in the bunch wanted the leftovers.
