Black and White Cheesecake Squares

I've had the recipe for Black and White Cheesecake Squares from the Martha Stewart Magazine for years, and it's one a favorite of mine to make.

Although it is a little time consuming (you need to refrigerate the dough), I just love the chocolate and cream cheese combo!

It's such a decadent dessert!
