Butterscotch Cheesecake Bars Recipe

Butterscotch Cheesecake Bars Recipe

The weather really cooled down here in upper Michigan today, so I thought it would be a great day to put something in the oven. At the beginning of summer, we have a lot of sweets in the freezer and by the end of the summer, most of them are gone so I decided on this Butterscotch Cheesecake Bars Recipe.

I thought butterscotch sounded good for a change and the idea of combing butterscotch with cream cheese sounded even better. This is a simple recipe that doesn’t call for a lot of ingredients, it’s quick to put together and cooks fairly quickly.

To melt the margarine and butterscotch I used the microwave instead of the stove which worked out very well. The original recipe doesn’t call for frosting them but I thought they would take a nicer picture with the cream cheese frosting on top. This is a very rich dessert so the frosting is not necessary, so I listed it as optional.

If you’re in the mood to do a little baking give this Butterscotch Cheesecake Bars Recipe a try. It’s delicious. Enjoy
