Hawaii Mom Blog: Lemon Cheesecake Bars

Lemon Cheesecake Bars

A friend of mine gave me some Trader Joes Meyer Lemon Cookie Thins, and I decided to use them to make cheesecake bars.

I used them for the crust, and also as a topping/garnish.

The cheesecake bars turned out fantastic - rich and creamy, with a light, lemony flavor.
