Raspberry Cheesecake Bars

October 6, 2013

Back in mid July during raspberry season I made these bars for a party. Turns out someone else was thinking the same thing as they made raspberry cheesecake for the very same party. I guess you can never have too much cheesecake! The original recipe called for cranberry sauce, I thought that was a bit odd, but I supposed it makes this dish easier to make all year round. I thought it was a bit odd that the white chocolate chips of the morsel crumble you put on top doesn’t melt when you bake it, but it still tasted good.
