Crowd pleaser!!!

this a few times now and it’s a huge hit always!!! Super easy and delicious. I used my homemade spiced cranberry sauce one time and it was extra good. I made a lemon variation as well with extra lemon extract in the cheesecake and lemon zest in the topping...used lemon curd instead of cranberry sauce. Yummy

Out of this world---soooo good!

make these Cranberry-cheese Bars a couple times a year---they are such a BIG HIT! After I cover and refrigerate (make sure they are cooled , then before serving, I cut into small bars and place into cupcake liners(to make more appetizing for those who are stuffed!)
