I cannot tell you how amazing these Snickerdoodle Bars are. If you are a cinnamon dessert freak like me, then these are for you!

Nothing beats a good old cheesecake or cheesecake bar to me, but the addition of the biscoff cookie crust and a thick cinnamon crumble on top makes these Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Bars really pop!

Some of my there favorite cinnamon themed recipes that we have on our site include Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Pecans, Cinnamon Tea Cakes and Cinnamon Cream Cheese Palmier Cookies.

Why this recipe works:

  • 100% homemade these bars are seriously delicious.
  • With multiple layers you get a different texture and flavor in each bite.
  • You can easily double this recipe to serve more people.

This recipe really can’t get much easier as well. With a bakery-style taste and uniqueness, your friends and family will think you slaved over these easy snickerdoodle bars!

Don’t worry, I won’t tell!

What makes them so easy is you make the crust and filling in a food processor, and you don’t need to clean it in-between. Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Bars for the win!

The warm cinnamon notes in these Snickerdoodle Bars really put me into that fall spirit. I just want to grab my favorite blanket, a good book, a coffee, and curl up with a couple of these snickerdoodle bars… Heaven.

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 to store:

I recommend keeping leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge! They should last about 3-4 days, since these contain cream cheese I do not recommend leaving them out for more than 2 hours.

You can also freeze these bars, to do this, bake and cool completely. I recommend cutting these bars and then placing on a baking sheet and freezing for 1 hour.

You can then layer with parchment paper in a Tupperware container, or you can individually wrap these and store in an freezer bag.

To defrost just place in refrigerator over night to thaw then enjoy!

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:

For the crust:

  1. 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 9×9 baking dish lined with parchment paper (or foil) set aside. 

For the filling:

  1. 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:

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, add the flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Whisk to combine. 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.
  2. 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.

Tips and Tricks:

  • You can easily double this recipe to serve a larger crowd.
  • This can be frozen, see my storage tips above.
  • If you cant find biscoff cookies another good alternative would be gingersnaps.
  • These need to time to set up, so make sure that you chill before slicing.
  • You can easily substitute vanilla bean paste for vanilla extract 1:1.

    If you double the recipe, what size pan should you use?

  3. Have you tried making the crumble mixture in the food processor ?

    Love the flavor of the biscoff crust. I had trouble with my topping though. It didn’t settle in like it looks in your picture. It just stayed like a crumbly topping that slides off the top if I tilt it. I did use cold butter. Any suggestions on what I might have done wrong?
