I love making cheesecake bars. They have all the wonderful flavor of cheesecake but are a little easier to make and bake. Cheesecake desserts are a great make-ahead dessert and they will keep well for about 5 days without drying out and getting stale like other baked goods.

The pecan pie topping has ample chopped pecans and is fabulously sweet. Just the way a pecan pie filling should be.

How To Make Pecan Pie Cheesecake Bars:

Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter to make the crust and press the mixture into a parchment paper or foil-lined baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.

Mix together the cheesecake layer ingredients using a hand-held mixer. Spread over the cooled crust and bake for about 23 minutes.

While it bakes, whisk together the pecan pie topping ingredients in a bowl. Pour over the cheesecake layer and bake for another 35 minutes.

Important: Refrigerate at least 4 hours. You want it to be completely chilled before cutting into bars.

Store leftovers in an airtight conatiner in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days.
