Cranberry Cheesecake Squares

Chocolate graham crackers are a real time-saver when making the crust for these squares. And if the cheesecake cracks? We skip a water bath in favor of just using the cranberry topping to cover up any goofs.

Bonus recipe: Use crisp ladyfingers to make Tiramisu. Line a 9-inch square dish with cookies; moisten with coffee liqueur. Fold mini chocolate chips into sweetened whipped cream, and fill pan with cream mixture.
