Cheesecake Bars

I am a big fan of cheesecake, the unadulterated kind, just plain yummy cheesecake.  So when I saw these Cheesecake Bars on Bakerella, (seriously this woman is my hero) I had to try them.    

Crust- by far my favorite part of the cheesecake bars, it was deelish!
1 1/2 cups crushed Biscoff Cookies (about 27 cookies)*
3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
6 Tablespoons melted butter
Mix cookies and sugar together.
**I had left over gram cracker cookies from our smoores the other day so I used those ,3/4 cup, and the Biscoff Cookies, 3/4 cup.
 Add butter and stir until combined.
Press mixture into a 13 X 9 pan.
3 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons flour
3 eggs
8 oz. sour cream
1 Tablespoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Cream the sugar, cream cheese, and flour with an electric mixer on medium until light and fluffy.
On medium low, add eggs one at a time, mixing well with each addition.
Add sour cream and vanilla and mix until just combined.
Pour on prepared crust and bake for about 45 minutes.
Remove and cool.

 Chocolate Ganache
My version of chocolate ganache requires semi sweet chocolate chips and butter, melted and mixed together till the right consistency.  Bakerella's chocolate ganache requires a few more ingredients, but her's turned out a little lighter.   Once you've poured the chocolate ganache on top, and refrained from trying to eat it, refrigerate the cheesecake bars overnight, then cut and serve.  It might be helpful to try using a cookie cutter to get those perfect edges.
YUM!! Seriously, when you whip up a batch of these, everyone will love them and rave about your baking skills!
