Blissful Butterscotch Cheesecake Bars

Kim Biegacki


This is an "Oh My" recipe!
I only make these only once or twice a year as they are so rich & decadent and I love, love, love to indulge in the combination of cheesecake & butterscotch.
The original recipe a friend gave me in December of 97 and I lost touch with her years ago but always think of her when I get this recipe out to make. Since then, I have updated the recipe and the name to make it over the top sensational with flavor and a double layer of cheesecake was a must!

This is still by far one of my all time favorite desserts. Go ahead and indulge just a little.
