    Step 6

The secret for cutting bars easily is to line the pan with heavy-duty foil. When it is time to cut the bars, just lift the baked bars with the foil out of the pan, and cut.

Cheesecake bars cut best straight from the refrigerator. Use a wet sharp knife, wiping off crumbs after each cut.
