Reviews for Raspberry Cream Cheese Bars
"These were delicious, however, mine came out very soft. Maybe I should have cooked them a little longer. Would be interested in finding out if they should be firmer like cheesecake or if they're supposed to be soft."
"Great and tasty. I used two 8oz pkgs of cream cheese because I wanted a thicker filling and I used frozen raspberries that I had added a bit of sugar to (just drain most of the juice before putting on as the topping). I added shredded coconut and walnut crumbs to the crust and for us it took it to the next level. Yum!"
"These were very good. I used strawberry preserves."
