Citrus Curd “Cheese” Cake Bars 

Cheesecake is one of those desserts that I never really had a fondness for.

It’s like the love child of a traditional cheesecake and an ice cream sandwich. I love that this version has an ice cream like consistency without the traditional sour cheese flavour, that’s the part I never quit understood 🙂 Continue reading →
