Just when you think you've had all the good cheesecakes you find another delicious recipe. These cheesecake bars look awesome. I love pecans too so I'm definitely going to love this recipe. This is a keeper for school bakes too! It's quick and easy to make and looks fail proof!

I'm so glad I found this recipe...I love, love, love pecan pie but I never make or buy it because I don't want to eat the whole thing. lol I'm wondering, can these cheesecake bars be frozen, and if so, how well and for how long will they keep? This recipe would so fun to put into cupcake liners and then give away as a gift. Yum, I'd love to be on that gift list!

These desserts bars were super sweet and definitely tasted like pecan pie. The cheesecake wasn't the best texture, but it was decent.

These were so yummy! I would definitely make them during the holiday season, and they would be a total hit.

I really liked these! I'm usually not a fan of cheesecake because it's too rich for me, but this was just the perfect amount of sweetness.

Something was off in these bars. The pecan pie part was a hit. It WAS SO DAMN GOOD. But the cheesecake part was a bit gritty. Ugh. The flavors were there, the texture was just off. Otherwise, I'd give this 5 stars. But, alas, 4 will have to do.

These were sooo good! I'm not crazy about the filling in traditional pecan pies, so replacing it with cheesecake is a great idea. I would definitely make these again!

Combining two great things isn't always a success, but it was here! The pecan pie part was bar far my favorite.

Rich, creamy and delicious! There goes my resolution to eat healthier. But, it was worth it!

Pecan pie and cheesecake are two of my favorite things. Putting them together is like heaven!
