Tips for Perfection

  • Chill Before Serving: The flavors and texture of these bars enhance when fully chilled. Patience pays off!
  • Line Your Pan: For easy removal and clean cuts, line your baking pan with foil or parchment paper and grease well.
  • Pour Topping on Hot Cheesecake: To achieve the perfect layering, pour the pecan pie filling over the hot cheesecake layer gently to keep the layers distinct.
