Golden Oreo Strawberry Cheesecake Bars

I’m baaaack! I’ve got a really delicious, really springtime treat for you today!

What could possibly be better than fresh, large, luscious strawberries on top of cheesecake? Layering them between golden Oreos! Oh yeah, you’re going to love this one!

Ingredients:

  • 24 golden Oreos, divided
  • 1 1/4 Cup strawberries, medium dice
  • 1/3 Cup sour cream
  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • 3 Tbls unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 Tbls sugar
  • 1 Tbls water
  • 2 tsp lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened

 

Instructions:

  1. Turn the oven on to 350 degrees. In a food processor, add half of the golden Oreo cookies.
  2. Add the melted butter and pulse one more until the crumbs are evenly coated. Pulse until it forms crumbs.
  3. Crumbs are pressed into an 8-inch baking pan that has been lined with foil (or parchment paper if you’re out). Bake for 5 minutes, then remove from oven and allow cool on the counter.
  4. Put strawberries, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of water in a pot.
  5. Until tender, bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. This should be stirred periodically. To thicken, combine cornstarch and lemon juice, stir into the liquid, and cook for one more minute.
  6. Blend the strawberry mixture in a food processor using short pulses. Put in a bowl and leave alone.
  7. Put the cream cheese, sour cream, vanilla, egg, and remaining sugar in a food processor. Until incorporated and well-blended, pulse. Put over the Oreo crust.
  8. On top of the cheesecake, drizzle half of the strawberry sauce. Use any leftover sauce however you choose; it tastes delicious and is added to lemonade. Bake cheesecake for 36 minutes at 325 degrees, or until it is barely jiggly. After taking out of the oven, let cool on a wire rack. Then, gently press the crushed remaining Oreos into the bars. Place covered in the refrigerator and allow it to sit for at least three hours before cutting into squares.
  9. Serve and enjoy.
