1 ½ cups crushed chocolate cookies (such as Oreos)

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Cheesecake Layer:

1 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ cup strawberry crumble (optional)

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the Crust

 

In a medium bowl, combine the crushed cookies and melted butter. Mix until well combined.

Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish lined with aluminum foil.

Refrigerate while preparing the cheesecake layer.

Step 2: Make the Cheesecake Layer

creamy and well combined.

Gently fold in the whipped heavy cream until fully incorporated.

Spread the cheesecake mixture evenly over the chilled crust. Smooth the top with a spatula.

Step 3: Prepare the Strawberry Layer

 

In a saucepan, combine the chopped strawberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, and water.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and the strawberries break

down. This should take about 5-7 minutes.

Allow the strawberry mixture to cool slightly, then spread it evenly over the cheesecake layer.

Step 4: Add the Toppings

 

Arrange the sliced strawberries evenly over the strawberry layer.

If using, sprinkle the strawberry crumble on top for extra texture and flavor.

Step 5: Chill and Serve

 

Refrigerate the cheesecake bars for at least 4 hours, or until fully set.

Once set, use the foil to lift the bars from the baking dish. Cut into squares and serve chilled.

Tips for Success

 

Softening the Cream Cheese: Ensure the cream cheese is fully softened before beating to avoid

lumps.

Whipping the Cream: For a light and airy cheesecake layer, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks

form before folding it into the cream cheese mixture.

Chilling Time: Allow ample time for the bars to chill and set in the refrigerator. This ensures clean

cuts and firm bars.

Variations

 

Berry Mix: Substitute or add other berries like raspberries or blueberries to the strawberry layer for a

mixed berry delight.

Crust Options: Use graham crackers or digestive biscuits instead of chocolate cookies for a different

crust flavor.

Enjoy these delightful strawberry cheesecake bars as a refreshing dessert that’s sure to impress! They

are perfect for any occasion and bring a burst of fruity freshness with every bite.
