Cherry Lime Cheesecake Bars

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you had a lovely summer holiday weekend (US folks). It was very exciting in our next of the woods with multiple parties, a trip to the zoo, one too many ice cream cones and fireworks at the end of it all. Summer weekends are truly the best; lots of family time, outdoor activities and fresh fruits and produce.
I’ve reached the point where I need to eat more than berries and embrace the rest of the fruits in season like cherries and peaches. I love the sweet cherries that are in peak season right now but man, can they get pricy when you want a few pounds for a pie or to snack on.
I needed a few pounds of cherries last weekend so I hit my local ALDI grocery market where I know I can get fresh fruits and produce for a great price. After eating almost a pound of the cherries, I decided I should bake something. These cherry lime cheesecake bars were the resulting culprits. I love cheesecake bars as they are miniature cheesecake slices in your hand but take less the time and effort to put together.
These bars start with a classic graham cracker crust, that’s pre-baked and topped with a sweet lime cheesecake filling and finally topped with a swirl of cherry lime topping. It’s three layers of complete bliss; a crunchy crust, a sweet cheesecake filling and a tart cherry lime topping.
Absolutely what you want to be indulging on this summer!
