Cherry Cheesecake Bars

I have absolutely no idea where this recipe came from. I think my mother clipped it off the back of a cream cheese package twenty-some-odd years ago, something like that. Doesn’t matter – it’s decadent. When making up cookie plates, this falls into the “over the top” category. Since many of the cookies that I make for Christmas are delicate or subtle, it’s nice to have something that’s just a giant punch of flavor.
