I’ve been trawling the internet for different ways I could develop the delicious and heavenly Cookie Bar after my Rolo Cookie Bars and others have been so delicious and addictive. And then I found this from Eating on a Dime. Oh my daaaaays! Cheesecake and Cookie Bar put together?! YES PLEASE.

I’ve made my version of Cheesecake Cookie Bars for a while now, and I genuinely didn’t realise that I have never posted them on to here?! I tried them so soon after my Rolo Cookie Bars  that I assumed I had! I used the same base recipe as my Rolo Cookie Bars, and then the same Cheesecake mixture from my Cheesecake Brownies and it was perfect. I don’t like to mess with something that I know works, so the cookie base stayed the same, I just switched out the Rolos for just Chocolate Chips. I would say you could use Rolos as well, but it might bake a bit funny with the mixture of Caramel and Cheesecake (I tried, it was delicious, but very gooey.) but honestly? I prefer the Chocolate Chips for this one.

This sort of Cheesecake really does have to be baked, as the cookie is obviously baked. However, it’s still so creamy and delicious! I bake the cookie bars for a maximum of 30 minutes, as (if you watch my video you can see) the cheesecake is still ever so slightly wobbly on top, but firm. The cookie isn’t completely solid, and its better that way because it has to be stored in the fridge, the cold will naturally make the cookie firmer.

You could make this into a chocolate cookie base, by taking out 75g of plain flour, and adding 50g of cocoa powder to the mix. I have done this, and it is also SO deliciously yummy! Honestly, you could try anything with these (Within reason) like using M&Ms instead of chocolate chips, or making the cheesecake part flavoured etc. You could try so much and it would always be delicious! I hope you love these as much as I did! Enjoy! x

Ingredients

Cookie Mix

  • 275 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Cornflour
  • 115 g Unsalted Butter/Stork
  • 55 g Granulated Sugar
  • 135 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Medium Egg
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 250 g Chocolate Chips

Cheesecake Mix

  • 250 g Full Fat Cream Cheese
  • 100 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 Medium Egg
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 190C/170C Fan and line a 9x9inch Square Tin with parchment paper, and leave to the side for now.
  • Whisk/Mix the Plain Flour, Bicarbonate, Salt and Cornflour together so its evenly distributed – leave to the side.
  • In a larger bowl, melt the butter. Add in the two sugars, and whisk for about 2 minutes so the sugar starts to dissolve and the mixture is smooth. Add in the Egg and the Vanilla, and whisk again briefly till smooth. (I used an electric whisk)
  • Add in the Dry Ingredients and the Chocolate Chips and mix with a spatula till a thick cookie dough is formed.
  • Press all but a handful of the mixture into the bottom of the tin and press down.
  • In a bowl, beat the cream cheese till loose, and add the sugar and beat again till combined. Gradually beat in the egg till combined along with the vanilla.
  • Pour the cheesecake mixture on top of the cookie bars, and then sprinkle over bits of the spare bit of cookie dough. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes! Once baked, leave to cool in the tin completely, and then refrigerate.

Notes

  • I used Callebaut Chocolate Chips for my chocolate as I adore the chocolate, but you could use any really. You could even use a chocolate bar which you have chopped into pieces. I also used Philadelphia Cream Cheese, but 250g of a full fat type would be ideal.
  • These delicious beings will last in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, but they’ll be eaten before then.
  • Sometimes they can still look a little underdone, but often baked cheesecake can do so. It will still have a ever so slight wobble, and when you touch it it will spring back, but it shouldn’t be liquid by any means.

    Hi, I was wondering if I could bake these and then freeze them for a day or two?
    If so, should I slice them first and wrap them in something like cling film, or freeze it as one piece and slice when defrosted.

    And could I pre make the cookie and the cheese cake recipe and refrigerate it until ready to bake?

    Many Thanks,
    Heather.

      You can, but there wouldn’t be much point in freezing them for such a short time – they do last a few days once baked! – you can make the cookie dough in advance, but I wouldn’t make the cheesecake mix in advance

      I personally don’t recommend using lighter/lower fat cream cheese for cheesecake mixes – sorry!!

    Could you make these with a chocolate flavoured cookie base? What would be the best way?

    Can I use caster sugar instead of granulated? And dark brown sugar instead of light? 🙂

      My friends and family really enjoyed these cookies, thanks! It’s a great solution for when you want to bring cheesecake to a picnic but you don’t want to deal with plates and everything. I’m gonna try to make the cheese layer a bit thicker next time. Do you think it’d work?

      Hahaha! I think it should be okay with more – just the baking time would increase!
