I just love the layering effect these cheesecake bars have as well.

This really is a knockout dessert.

I have included a little sneaky tip in this recipe as well. Along with the crumble on top of these bars, a lot of recipes call for you to add cubed cold butter into a flour mixture like in our Fried Apple Crumble, Chicken Pot Pie, and Tiramisu Pie!

How to cut cold butter without a mess?

My little trick is to grate the cold butter right into the bowl. Cutting up cold butter often makes a huge mess for me, but grating it and holding the paper around the butter while doing so cuts down on lots of cleanup!

How should I store my snickerdoodle bars?

I recommend keeping leftovers (of there are any) in the fridge! Eat within a few days (which won’t be hard!)

By now I think you know Jeremy and I have a thing for all things cheesecake. Pineapple Upside Down Cheesecake, Tropical Cheesecake Salad, Cheery Cheesecake Bars, and so many other recipes already on the blog, I could go on and on!

I just love experimenting with new recipes incorporating flavors we already enjoy. I also have a thing for cheesecake bars in general because they are just flat out easy to make.

And I mean c’mon a Snickerdoodle Cheesecake? YES PLEASE!

Plus, they always come out perfect, unlike large cheesecakes tend to do. AND, they only make 9 pieces, giving us a handle on portion control (kind of. LOL).

How to make Snickerdoodle Bars:

  • Make the crust first by placing cookies in the food processor and process until they form crumbs. Add melted butter, pulse until coated. Press crust into 9×9 inch baking dish lined with parchment paper or foil.
  • Brush out leftover crumbs in food processor. Next, make the filling, add in the cream cheese, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, sour cream, and sugar. Pulse until combined and smooth, pour evenly on top of the crust.
  • Last, the cinnamon crumble. In a medium-sized bowl, add the flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon, whisk to combine. Cut cold butter into very small cubes, or do a little trick like me and grate the butter into the bowl with a cheese grater. Toss to combine so the butter pieces are coated.
  • Now, get your hands dirty and roll the butter with the flour mixture between your fingers. Keep doing this until the entire mixture resembles wet sand with a few larger butter pieces mixed in. Pour ALL OF IT, yes, all of it! On top of the cheesecake layer.
  • Bake at 350 for 36 minutes until cheesecake is very slightly jiggly in the center. Set on the counter to cool for about 20 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 3 hours to set. Cut into 9 pieces, enjoy.

Ingredients

For the crust

  • 8.8 ounce package Biscoff cookies Or 1 Cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the filling

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg

For the crumble

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cold, (1 stick)

Instructions

For the crust

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cookies in a food processor, pulse into crumbs. Add the melted butter and cinnamon, pulse until combined. Press crust into a 9x9 baking dish lined with parchment paper (or foil) set aside. 

For the filling

  • Wipe out the food processor, no need to clean. Place the cream cheese into the food processor, process until smooth. Add the sour cream, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and egg. Process until smooth and pour over the crust, smooth out evenly.

For the crumble

Cut the butter into very small cubes or do it the easy way like me, and grate the butter into the bowl with a cheese grater. Toss the butter with the flour mixture. Taking your hands, roll the butter pieces with the flour between your fingers. Continue to do this until the entire bowl resembles wet sand with a few larger butter pieces.
  • Pour the entire crumble (yes, all of it!) on top of the cheesecake. Bake for 36 minutes, cheesecake will be very slightly jiggly in the center. Let cool on the counter for 20 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 3 hours to set. Cut into 9 pieces, serve.
