Oh warm weather, how I have missed you.

We didn’t really get a springtime, nature seems to be in a habit of cutting us short on the in-between-and-less-severe seasons these days. It seems like every year our spring and fall get a little shorter and our summer and winter with their never-failing temperature extremes just keep getting longer and looooonger.

I miss my four seasons. I used to think that was one of the only good things about living in a state like this. You get four distinct seasons. Four types of weather, four collections of fashion statements, four waves of seasonal produce and fresh ingredients. I never got sick of any one time of year because just it came just at the perfect moment and left just a tad bit early, leaving me wanting a little more. I loved it that way.


Only two real seasons is not working for me. I feel like I missed my springtime fever and transitioning wardrobe.

But really, I am loving the warm sunshine. It was a little hot yesterday afternoon in long jeans (90 degrees…) but I walked out of the grocery store around 7:30 last night and though “oh my gosh this is it, the perfect temperature”. So I rushed to my car to check the temp gauge on my dash. It said 88. I don’t think that was quite right. I’m thinking it was more like low 80s… But oh well. All I know is that it was glorious and I would definitely be okay with a few days of that perfectly comfortable, not-hot-not-cold-no-breeze-to-chill-your-legs weather. And a few of these Toffee Cheesecake Bars.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 5 skor bars, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x9 pan with nonstick spray. In a bowl combine flour, oats, and brown sugar. 

  2. Cut in 5 tablespoons of butter with a pastry cutter or fork until mixture is crumbly. Press into a prepared pan and bake for 10 minutes. Remove crust from oven, melt 2 tablespoons butter in the microwave and then brush on the pastry crust with a pastry brush. Allow to cool. 

  3. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining tablespoon of butter with cream cheese, egg, sugar, powdered sugar and vanilla. Spread mixture over crust in pan. 

  4. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with crushed toffee bars and bake 15-20 minutes or until cheesecake layer is set. Remove from oven. Melt chocolate chips and drizzle over still-warm chocolate bars. Allow cheesecake to cool before cutting in bars.
