Homemade Organic Vanilla Almond Cheesecake Dream Bars

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 12 – 16  Homemade Organic Graham Crackers
  • 6 Tbsp. 0rganic pasture butter, melted
  • 16 oz. [2 bricks] organic cream cheese, softened
  • 5 Tbsp. organic whole milk, grass-fed preferred
  • 2 organic pasture eggs
  • 1 tsp. Homemade Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp. organic almond baker’s emulsion (Simply Organic Almond Flavor is what I use– no synthetic chemicals!)
  • 1/3 cup local honey (without any corn syrup added)

Here’s How I do it:

To Make the Crust:

  1. Preheat oven to 325° Fahrenheit.
  2. Soften the cream cheese by leaving it on the kitchen counter.
  3. Melt the butter in a sauce pot over low heat.
  4. Break the Graham crackers into crumbs using an immersion blender or food processor.
  5. Place the crumbs into an ungreased 8×8 ” square baking dish.
  6. Pour the slightly cooled butter mixture on top of the crumbs and press down to make a crust.
  7. Make sure to mix the butter and crumbs completely.
  8. Bake crust for 10 minutes at 325° Fahrenheit.
  9. Remove and allow to cool on a cooling rack for 5 minutes.

To Make the Cheesecake Filling:

  1. Place the cream cheese, eggs, milk,vanilla and almond into a pint-and-a-half  sized Mason jar, and blend.
  2. Add the honey and blend again.

To Assemble the Cheesecake Bars:

  1. Pour filling over the crust.
  2. Bake in the center of the oven until slightly puffy and set, about 30 minutes.
  3. Place the cheesecake bars on the cooling rack and allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Place in the refrigerator and chill for 3 hours, or until completely cold.
  5. Cut into squares with a moistened knife.
  6. Enjoy!
