They are relatively easy too, so score! It’s a touch time consuming because everything is made from scratch, but to me, that’s half the fun!

Unless you count cleaning up which is the one thing I hate most! Oh well! I got the recipe for the cheesecake filling from HERE.

Oreo Cheesecake Bars are a delicious treat year round!

How to make Strawberry Cheesecake Bars:

Process half of the golden Oreos in a food processor. Add butter and process until fully combined.

Press crumbs into a foil/parchment lined baking sheet or a non-stick baking pan.

In a pot cook strawberries with water and sugar. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Add in a cornstarch lemon juice mixture.

Then using your food processor process the strawberries until smooth. Set aside.

Make the cream cheese mixture by combining the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and egg. Then spread on top of your Oreo crumbs.

Pour half of your strawberry mixture on top of the cream cheese saving the remaining half for other kitchen creations (I enjoy adding it to lemonade!)

Bake until cheesecake is just slightly jiggly.  Let cool.

Crush the remaining Oreos and sprinkle on top.

Refrigerate covered until set (about 3 hrs).

Enjoy!

Can cheesecake bars be frozen?

Yes! Simply freeze the bars on a plate and once frozen place in an airtight container and keep in the freezer for several months!

The Oreos on top probably won’t be as fresh tasting but other than that they will be delicious!

  1. I have made this twice now, and it’s absolutely delicious. My only thing is that my strawberries sink into the cheesecake when adding. What am I doing wrong?

    1. Strange, the only thing I can think of is the strawberry mixture is not getting thick enough. Make sure that you bring it to a boil after adding the cornstarch, it should be a thick syrup consistency. If it still looks thin to you, go ahead and add another 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch that has been mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of water so it forms a slurry. Then, let it come to a boil again, whisking constantly. I’m glad you liked the taste and made them twice already! Hopefully with these tweaks you will get that great layered effect.


      1. I just made these, and my strawberries sunk into the cheesecake, too. My strawberries were so thick that I couldn’t pour them easily, so I had to spoon the mixture out. I think maybe next time I’m going to put the strawberry mixture in the blender to get a really sooth consistancy, and see if that makes a difference. I also used all of the strawberry mixture because i didnt think half would be enough to cover all of it. The first round is in the oven now, can’t wait to try it!


      2. Okay, I’m currently making these for the 3rd time. These are such a hit! Blending the strawberry sauce has proven to be the way to go for me, as it lays on top of the cheesecake nicely when it’s good and smooth. For the 4th of July batch I’m making right now, I’ve also thinly sliced some strawberries and put them in a layer on top of the crust before adding the cheesecake, and I’ll also add slightly e strawberries on top. I only drizzled the sauce in a zigzag design this time since I’m adding so many fresh strawberries. Can’t wait to try them!


      3. When I saw this recipe I just had to make them. I just made them and my strawberries did the same thing, sunk. I’m thinking the cheesecake mixture was just too thin bit I’m not sure how to fix that.

  2. These were wonderful! As Jessica mentioned above, my wife and I both think we will put more oreos in the crust next time. We reduced the amount of oreos on the top, and actually crushed them up in the food processor as well. That isn’t as pretty, but it makes storage and eating a bit easier. We also used the entire recipe of strawberry topping. That was just about perfect. We will definitely make it again.


  3. Made these yesterday….they got the most amazing reviews from the family I’ve gotten in years! They absolutely LOVED them!!
