DULCE DE LECHE CHEESECAKE BARS

YES, THEY ARE AS GOOD AS THE LOOK...GET BAKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


For the Crust:
1 cup of graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons melted butter
Preheat oven to 325F. Line the bottom and sides of an 8-inch square pan with nonstick foil, leaving an overhang. Stir all ingredients together and press onto the bottom of the pan. Bake 10 mins and cool on a rack 5 mins.

For the Filling:
1 cup dulce delche (I made mine by pouring one 14-oz can of sweetened condensed milk into an 8x8 pyrex, cover with foil, place in larger pan filled halfway with water and bake at 425 for approx 60-90 mins. Cool)

16 ounces room temp cream cheese
½ cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Pour the dulce onto the cooled crust and spread. Put in fridge while making the filling. For the filling: beat cream cheese and sugar to blend. Add eggs and vanilla. Pour filling
over the dulce de leche layer evenly, and bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the center only slightly jiggles. Remove and cool completely. Chill in fridge at least 3 hours.


For the Glaze:
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
½ stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
Microwave all until smooth. Pour over the cheesecake evenly and chill at least 30 mins. Cut into squares!

I'm making these right now and wanted to add this comment before I forget:
I made the Dulce like you did from sweetened cond. milk. Did 60min but next time I'll only do 45min because I had a tough time spreading the Dulce onto the crust, kept tearing the crust apart. So I threw the crust away and just put whole graham crackers on the bottom of the pan instead (4 1/2 fit perfectly). We'll have to see how that works for cutting later though.
Oh, and I'm guessing the temp for baking with the cream cheese mixture is 325F.
Can't wait to taste them later!!! :-)
