cherry cheesecake bars

I grew up eating cheesecake for every one of my dad’s birthdays as a kid, and while I didn’t care for it at the time, I came to absolutely love it as a teenager and wanted it for all my birthdays every year after that. As my mom got used to the cheesecake request from my dad and I every January (we both have birthdays in January) she became a cheesecake wizard. The last cheesecake she made for me was a traditional strawberry cheesecake with a homemade cream cheese glaze, and oh my goodness, my expectation bar for cheesecake has been set high because of her.
