Reviews forRich Cheesecake Bars
"my grandchildren love them. I had to give the recipe to their mother at their insistence."
"Very rich and quite soft and yummy. Everyone loves it when I make it and ask for the recipe. It is a sticky bar slice and you need to keep cleaning your knife while slicing it into bars."
"I was excited to try this recipe, but it turned out to be a flop. Even though i baked it as directed, the cake part was dry, and the cheesecake topping was way too sweet and didn't taste like cheesecake."
"I doubled this recipe and baked in a 13 x 9 pan. The only adjustment I made was adding a splash of vanilla extract to the cream cheese mixture. These bars are rich and delicious!"
"Hi, are these really tiny? I'm wondering how it makes 2 dozen from a 9" square pan. Also is 3oz of cream cheese correct, doesn't it usually come in 8oz pkg's?"
"This recipe can be doubled and baked in a 13 x 9 pan. However, the bars will be a little thicker and may need to bake a few minutes longer.Taste of Home Test Kitchen"
"Can this be made in a 13 x 9 pan? Please answerDelicious!"
"Can this recipe be doubled and baked in a 13x9 in baking dish?"
"very good cheesecake recipe- make sure you use the 9 oz cake mix (not the 18 1/4 oz)"
"From St. Louis too and yes this does taste gooey butter cake"
