Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Bars, speculoos cookie crust and creamy cinnamon cheesecake topped with a cinnamon crumble!
This Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Bars recipe is hands down one of the best desserts I have ever tasted. To me, nothing beats cheesecake but then add a kick butt crust using biscoff cookies and an addictive cinnamon crumble topping and I’m sold!
Your friends and family will think you spent hours cooking up these cheesecake bars, but lucky for you, this recipe is SUPER simple.
Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Bars Recipe Directions:
- In a food processor, place your speculoos cookies, turn them into crumbs and then pulse with melted butter. Press this into the bottom of a 9×9 baking pan and set aside.
- Make the creamy cheesecake filling by wiping out the food processor, no need to clean it thoroughly, and add your cheesecake ingredients which include cream cheese, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, sour cream, and sugar! Pulse to combine and pour on top of the crust.
- Now, the fun part- making the crumble!
- In a medium-sized bowl, add the flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut up butter into very small cubes, or do it the easy way like me and grate the butter right into the bowl. Toss to combine so the butter is coated in the flour mixture.
- Taking your hands, press, and roll the butter through your fingers to mix with the flour mixture. You’re done when the crumble looks like sand with a few larger pieces mixed in. Pour everything on top of the cheesecake, yes, all of it! Trust me.
- Bake at 350 for 36 minutes until cheesecake is very slightly jiggly in the center, set it on the counter and let cool for 20 minutes. Cover, and place in the fridge for at least 3 hours to set. Cut into 9 even squares and enjoy!
See, so easy and you only have to dirty one appliance- I love that!
Jeremy and I love cheesecake everything so I love experimenting with recipes for us to enjoy. I love making cheesecake bars because they are just easier to make than a large cheesecake and it doesn’t make a ton of them, so we feel slightly less guilty.
