Sugar Cookie Cheesecake Bars

Easy Sugar Cookie Cheesecake Bars are my idea of the perfect dessert. Semi-homemade yet full of decadence, this semi-homemade bar cookie recipe stars cheesecake atop a buttery sugar cookie crust.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-inch by 13-inch cake pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine cookie mix, pudding mix, brown sugar, butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 whole egg. Mix well and press in to bottom of pan.
  • In a standing mixer with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl by hand, beat cream cheese, sour cream, and sugar until smooth.
  • Add remaining whole egg, egg yolks, and remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla. Beat until smooth. Pour over crust in pan and smooth the top.
  • Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until center is set. Cool at least 30 minutes. Top with sprinkles. Store in the refrigerator.
