Expert Tips

  • The secret for cutting bars easily is to line the pan with heavy-duty foil. When it is time to cut the bars, just lift the baked bars with the foil out of the pan, and cut.
  • Cheesecake bars cut best straight from the refrigerator. Use a wet sharp knife, wiping off crumbs after each cut.
  • Cooking Gluten Free?Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
