Apple Cheesecake Bar


Sunday dinner at our house is always a nice meal finished with a special dessert. Today I made a simple meal of baked ziti, green beans, and apple cheesecake bars to welcome in the new week.  The bars are so yummy that I thought you might like to have the recipe for the three layer bars.
