Tasty Tuesday ~ Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Bars

Facebook videos of yummy looking desserts will be the death of me! I saw this one a week ago and saved it for a future try. I had all the ingredients on hand, so I whipped it up this weekend.

2 blocks cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of kosher salt

2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
cinnamon sugar, for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Grease a 9"-x-13" baking pan with cooking spray.

Prepare cheesecake mixture: In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and salt and beat until combined.

Prepare snickerdoodle dough: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar with a hand mixer until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until just combined. Gradually add flour mixture and mix on low until just combined.

Press about two-thirds of the snickerdoodle dough into an even layer in the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar on top. Pour cheesecake batter on top and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Break up remaining snickerdoodle dough into small clumps and sprinkle over cheesecake layer. Sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar.

Bake until edges are set and center of cheesecake mixture is only slightly jiggly, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely until slicing into square.
