Toffee-Topped Cheesecake Bars

Kelly Williams


My all-time favorite, hands-down, go-to bar cookie! These are in category all by themselves! Stash a couple aside for yourself, or you might not get any! *Cut smaller for holiday cookie trays and place into large paper (or foil) candy cups. A must-try recipe for you! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! (photo from bing images)
