Cherry Cheesecake Sugar Cookie Bars

These sweet bars are the best of both worlds! Sugar Cookie meets Cherry Cheesecake. Cherry Cheesecake Sugar Cookie Bars are easy to make and oh so yummy! These don’t last long in our house, and Christmas or Thanksgiving watch out, these desserts are the first to go.

Cherry Cheesecake Sugar Cookie Bars

I’ll be using prepared sugar cookie dough, neufchatel cheese (Which is basically the same as cream cheese, it just has less fat. You can use either.), sugar, cherry pie filling, eggs, vanilla extract, and lemon juice.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a a 9×13 baking dish with parchment paper. Spray with non stick spray.

In a bowl mix the sugar, sour cream, eggs, vanilla, lemon juice, and neufchatel cheese. Set aside.

After that take your cookie dough out of the fridge and spread it out evenly on the bottom of your lined pan.

Then, add the cream cheese mixture on top.

Finally, place the pan in the oven and bake for about 35 minutes. You can tell the bars are done when it starts to brown on top and after you place a toothpick in the middle and it comes out clean!

Let the bars cool completely. Cut them into squares and add the cherry topping.

They taste best eaten within a day or two but, they can easily be frozen for a few weeks as well!
