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.

5-Ingredient Sugar Cookie Cheesecake Bars


  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 8oz cream cheese, at room temperature
  • One 16.5 oz tube of sugar cookie dough, at almost room temp
  • Rainbow sprinkles

How To Make 5-Ingredient Sugar Cookie Cheesecake Bars

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray an 8×8 baking dish with non-stick spray; set aside.
  2. Using a hand mixer, beat together egg, vanilla extract, and cream cheese in a large bowl.
  3. Cut the roll of sugar cookie dough in half and press one half into the bottom of the baking dish in an even layer.
  4. Pour cream cheesecake mixture over the sugar cookie crust.
  5. Make flattened “chunks” of cookie dough with the remaining 1/2 of the dough. Place them evenly over the top of the cheesecake mixture. (They will sink, melt, and then rise to form the top crust).
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or just until the sugar cookie shows a golden color.
  7. Let cool for at least an hour. Add sprinkles once completely cooled.
