There's nothing quite like rich, creamy, velvety cheesecake. With fruit, chocolate, or even just plain, its just sweet enough with just a little tang, and is guaranteed to make anyone smile. By making little bite-sized bars, you can please a whole crowd of folks without fussing in the kitchen all day.

Step 1: You'll Need. . .

For the Crust
  • 1/3 cup pecans
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup spelt flour (or substitute whole wheat or regular flour)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch of salt
Or, if you want an even easier crust:
  • About 12 packaged shortbread cookies (I like Walker's)
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • Tablespoon of sugar
For the Filling For the Topping
  • About 6 ounces of chocolate, chips or chopped

  • Food processor
  • 8" x 8" baking dish lined with foil
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Plastic bag or piping bag with small tip (for topping)
  • Sharp knife
