We did not call for sugar in the crust—it's tasty without it—and the sauces add sweetness. Arrange a mini buffet so guests may customize their pieces of our cheesecake bars with sauces and sprinkles.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together graham cracker crumbs and butter; press into bottom of a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch pan.

Step 2

Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool completely on a wire rack (about 20 minutes).

Step 3

Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Combine sugar and flour; gradually add to cream cheese, beating just until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over prepared crust, spreading to edges of pan.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until set. Remove from oven, and cool on a wire rack (about 2 hours). Cover and chill 8 hours. Cut into bars. Serve with Cherries Jubilee Sauce, Dark Chocolate Sauce, Hot Caramel Sauce, and Cashew-and-Gingered-Apricot Sprinkles.

Made bars day ahead of time. Great serving option as people often just want a taste of cheesecake. Sauces easy to make. Will definitely to again. Great for buffet-style dinner party.

These cheesecake bars were very easy and delicious. I added some chopped pecans to the crust to give it a little something extra.
