Raspberry Cheesecake Bars

Guess what? Today is National Cheesecake Day! Go out and celebrate!

Cheesecake is so good. A slice of New York Style Cheesecake rates in my top 5 things to eat in life. It’s so sinful. I just don’t allow myself to have it (except for a special occasion, of course). I can never stop at one bite when it comes to cheesecake. While it’s not a substitute for authentic cheesecake, I think these bars do a nice job of satisfying a cheesecake craving without totally overindulging.

You can find Cooking Light’s recipe for Raspberry Cheesecake Bars here.

Here are the ingredients.

This is a mixture of cream cheese, lemon zest and juice, sour cream and sugar.

This is a mixture of eggs, flour, brown sugar, vanilla, salt and a little butter.

You pour half of the brown batter into a casserole dish, top it with the cream cheese mixture and raspberries. Then you drop the rest of the brown batter on top by teaspoonful. Then swirl it all around.

This is how the dish looks after baking for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Once cool, cut into bars. Let's be honest, this is not nearly as delicious as the real thing, but it's pretty tasty!

  1. these raspberry cheesecake bars look spectacular! i’m with you about cheesecake, i simply adore it.

    • The cheesecake bars were really good! I am definitely going to tackle a real cheesecake one of these days!
