Creme Brulee Cheesecake Bars

Creme Brulee has always been a favorite of mine.  I have tried to make it and have not yet got it right.  So now I have discovered an easy and delicious substitute for my new favorite treat!  I cannot make them very often because I could eat the who pan, but can't wait for the opportunity to take them to the next function!! They were so easy to make! I was amazed at how quick it all came together.

Creme Brulee Cheesecake Bars
adapted from Betty Crocker
1 bag (pouch) sugar cookie mix
1 (4 serving) box French vanilla instant pudding mix
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 teaspoons vanilla
2 whole eggs plus 3 egg yolks
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened.
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup white sugar
1- 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate toffee bits ( or regular toffee bits), crushed fine.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly spray a 13 x 9 pan with cooking spray.  In a large bowl, stir cookie mix, pudding mix, brown sugar, melted butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 whole egg until a soft dough forms.  Press dough in the bottom of the pan.
Beat cream cheese, sour cream and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.  Add remaining whole egg, 3 egg yolks and remaining 2 teaspoons vanilla. Beat until smooth. Spread over the crust in pan.
Bake 30-35 minutes or until it is set in the center.  Immediately sprinkle the top with the crushed toffee bits. Cool for 30 minutes then refrigerate for 3 hours or until chilled.  Store covered in the refrigerator.
**To make cutting them easier cut into bars after the 30 minutes of cooling, before you refrigerate.
Sorry there aren't more pictures.  I had to leave so my son finished the baking and then cut into them before I made it home!!
ENJOY!!
