Snickerdoodles are so delicious, aren’t they? I couldn’t help but turn them into these Easy Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Bars. I wanted to keep the recipe pretty quick and easy, so instead of making a homemade snickerdoodle cookie dough, I spruced up a store-bought sugar cookie dough with cinnamon and sugar.

The bottom of the snickerdoodle cookie kind of melts into the cheesecake and the top forms a crunchy cookie crust. The texture is out of this world.

Tips for this Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Bars Recipe

I have a few tips to share about snickerdoodle cream cheese bars.

  • If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a storage bag and a rolling pin to crush up the Oreos. Some of the Oreo filling will stick to the bag and become a pain so be ready for that.
  • You can ditch the oreo crust and buy a second tube of sugar cookie dough for a bottom layer. Follow the directions on creating the top layer of snickerdoodle cookie and repeat it for the bottom layer making sure that there are no holes in the crust.
  • Always make sure that the cream cheese is at room temperature. This will help prevent lumpy cheesecake.
  • I like to always mix the cream cheese by itself. Scrape down the bowl and then only add the sugar. Again, this will help create a smooth cheesecake center.
  • You can add 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the cheesecake filling for more cinnamon flavor.

Can you freeze these Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Bars?

Yes. After they’re baked, I would cut them up into bars, freeze them on a cookie sheet, and then store in a freezer-safe container in the freezer. They should last up to 2 months in the freezer.

Ingredients

Crust

  • 26 Golden Oreo Cookies
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted

Cheesecake Layer

  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cookie Layer

  • 16.5 ounce package premade sugar cookie dough
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with foil and spray with a non-stick spray.
  • Add the Oreo cookies to a food processor and pulse until they form fine crumbs.
  • Add in melted butter and pulse until all of the crumbs are coated with butter.
  • Firmly press the cookie crumbs onto the bottom of the prepared pan. Set aside

Cheesecake

  • In a large bowl, add in the cream cheese. Beat with a hand mixer until creamed. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  • Add in the sugar and beat until combined. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  • Add in the egg and vanilla extract and beat until the egg is worked into the batter.
  • Pour the cheesecake batter on top of the crust layer and spread it to the edges. Set aside.

Cookie

  • Add the cinnamon and sugar into a shallow dish and mix until combined. Set aside.
  • Using a spoon, scoop about 2-inch sized balls from the cookie dough package. Roll the dough into a ball, press it flat and then press it into the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat both sides.
  • Place the coated cookie dough rounds all along the top of the cheesecake layer.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar mixture all over the top.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, until the middle is set and the edges are golden brown. Allow the bars to cool for about 30 minutes and then refrigerate the bars for 2-3 hours until they are completely set. I prefer to cover them after they've cooled completely and let them chill overnight in the fridge.
  • Cut into bars, store in an airtight container the fridge.
