If you like cheesecake and apple pie but can’t choose between the two, this recipe for Apple Almond Cheesecake Bars is a good compromise. It’s a cheesecake bar with almonds, lemon and apple – a little of everything. I found the recipe in one of Fine Cooking’s special publications “Sweet Cakes”. Their photo made it look more like an apple bar, but mine seemed more like a cheesecake bar that just happened to have some apple in it. The apples didn’t add as much flavor as I thought but the bars were still very good. They tasted even better on day 2 and the lemon flavor seemed more pronounced.
