I’m going through quite a bit of a cookie phase right now I must admit.  I actually blame (or thank depending on how you look at it) BAILEYS™ Coffee Creamers for this.  It all started with their BAILEYS™ Coffee Creamers Frosted Vanilla Cookie flavor which became quite the addiction in my house.  I began adding it to my coffee unaware of the obsession that would develop.  Then I started adding it anything I could think of.  That’s where the idea for these cookie cheesecake swirl bars came in.

Ingredients

  • Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough Rolls – The no-fuss, scrumptious base that’s ready to roll and set the stage for the creamy magic to happen.
  • Heavy Whipping Cream – Whips into a frenzy to give these bars their luxuriously rich texture.
  • Cream Cheese – Not one, but two blocks of this creamy dreamy cheese make the base so smooth.
  • Granulated Sugar – Sweetens the deal and balances out the tang of the cream cheese.
  • BAILEYS™ Coffee Creamers Frosted Vanilla Cookie flavor – Brings that “oh-my-gosh-is-this-real-life” kind of flavor that’ll have everyone begging for the recipe.
  • Pure Vanilla Extract – Just a dash elevates this dish.
  • Cookie Butter – The swirl that’ll make your taste buds twirl, adding a speculoos-y spin to the classic cheesecake vibe.

For the Cookie Crust:

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 8×8″ baking pans with non-stick baking spray.
  • Evenly pat cookie dough into the bottom of the pans creating a crust (Cookie dough should be a little colder than room temperature to work with easily).
  • Bake for 15 minutes then allow it to cool to room temperature.

For the Cheesecake Filling:

  • Add heavy cream to stand mixer (or use a hand mixer) on high speed and whip until heavy peaks develop. Store whipped cream in a separate bowl in the refrigerator.
  • Add cream cheese to stand mixer and mix on medium high speed.
  • Next add sugar and BAILEYS™ Coffee Creamers Frosted Vanilla Cookie flavor to bowl and mix until well incorporated.
  • Lastly mix in vanilla extract and turn off mixer.
  • Remove whipped cream from refrigerator and fold into cream cheese batter.

To Assemble:

  • Melt cookie butter for 15-20 seconds in a microwave until thin enough to pour.
  • Evenly spread 2/3s of cookie butter on both cooled cookie crusts.
  • Next pour half of cheesecake filling over each crust and spread until even.
  • Lastly randomly spoon remaining cookie butter over tops of cheesecake filling. Using a butter knife or skewer, swirl the cookie butter in a decorative pattern of your choosing.
  • Freeze for at least 4 hours then using a warm knife, cut into 3 rows horizontally and vertically to create 9 bars then refrigerate. Serve refrigerate.

How to Store

Once your Cookie Swirl Cheesecake Bars have set to perfection in the freezer, slide them into an airtight container to maintain their divine texture and flavor. They’ll chill out nicely in the fridge for up to 5 days, waiting for you to indulge whenever the craving hits. For longer storage, keep them in the freezer and simply defrost in the fridge for a few hours before serving.

    1. Hi Omi, it is similar to peanut butter in texture. You can usually find it at stores like Trader Joes.

  3. Look at all those delicious flavors wrapped in one pretty little bar. Mmm…. You are sharing with friends, right? 😉

  4. Oh man, I should not have looked at this post so early in the morning. Even though I’ve already had my breakfast, I am now officially hungry and want these bars! Pinned! 🙂
