These bars have a nice nutty cookie crust and topping. That's what makes them different from other cheese bars.This is a really easy bar dessert. The original recipe was from a an annual church cook book from the 80's. I added the chocolate layer to make it like a chocolate cheese cake. They are delicious. Enjoy!!!
