Birthday Cheesecake Bars

I am blessed with a wonderful student worker & her birthday's this week so I wanted to sprinkle a little celebration into our workspace with one of her favorite things- cheesecake. So I put on my thinking baking cap & made these bars. They traveled far easier than an actual cheesecake but retained the flavor & the fun! Happy happy birthday, Rachel!

Birthday Cheesecake Bars
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 2 packages (8 oz. each cream cheese, softened)
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • Sprinkles- optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x9" pan.

In a medium bowl, mix the graham crumbs, butter & sugar well. Pack it leveled, into the bottom of the baking pan.

Using a mixer, combine the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla & eggs (one at a time) until smooth & fluffy. Pour onto the graham cracker base & level.

Sprinkle on the sprinkles!!!

Bake for 50 minutes, until the edges are browned. Allow to cool before cutting. Serve in bars.
