Cheesecake Bars (with a Gluten Free option)

These are great. Much easier to serve people than a traditional cheesecake. If you are interested in making these gluten free, you can substitute gluten free graham crackers for the regular ones. I did not have gluten free graham crackers, so I used crushed gluten free cornflakes. They made it a bit chewy, but the flavor was fine.

Cheesecake Bars
crust:
1 1/4 graham cracker crumbs
4 T. powdered sugar
1/8 t. cinnamon
5 T. melted butter 

cheesecake:
2 pkgs. cream cheese, room temperature
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. sour cream
3 eggs
3 t. vanilla

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Stir together the crust ingredients. Press in the bottom of an 8 x 8 pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Lower the temp to 325°F. Beat the cream cheese and the sugar. When smooth, gradually beat in the rest of the ingredients. Pour onto the crust. Bake for 40 minutes. Let cool for at least 30 minutes before refrigerating.
