Shavout, the holiday where we celebrate receiving the Torah, is nearly upon us. This is one of my favorite holidays, and not just because it is traditional to eat dairy foods on Shavout, but that does make it extra sweet. One food that people love to eat on Shavout is cheesecake. Although a plain, well made cheesecake can be delicious (and a poorly made one can be disastrous), I think cheesecake is the perfect canvas to experiment with other flavors. This year, I decided to make these salted caramel cheesecake bars to bring to Shavuot services. I have made them before and they were a huge hit, so I can't wait to see how people react to them on Wednesday. They are a little bit salty, a little bit sweet and a little bit tangy with a buttery crust. When you bite into one, the flavor just melds together in your mouth into one delicious bite.
If salted caramel cheesecake isn't your thing (and who are you??), then you can try any of these other cheesecake recipes.
Wow, we love cheesecake on this blog. Anyway, here is the recipe for salted caramel cheesecake bars.
