Cranberry Almond Swirl Cheesecake Cookie Bars Recipe




    Ingredients :

  • cooking spray
  • 1 ¾ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • ¾ cup fresh cranberries
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¾ cup white sugar, divided
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 5 tablespoons milk, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 ½ teaspoons almond extract
  • ⅓ cup sliced almonds, or to taste
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9×13-inch baking dish with aluminum foil and lightly grease with cooking spray.

  • Step 2

    Combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and 2 tablespoons sugar in a bowl. Mix until butter evenly coats the crumbs. Transfer to the baking dish and flatten into an even layer.

  • Step 3

    Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Leave oven on; remove crust and let cool.

  • Step 4

    Place cranberries, water, and 1/4 cup sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil. Cook until cranberries have burst and mixture is thick, about 7 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes. Pour sauce into a blender or food processor and puree until smooth, adding more water to thin, if necessary.

  • Step 5

    Combine remaining sugar and cream cheese in a bowl. Beat using an electric mixer until smooth, scraping down sides of the bowl every 90 seconds, about 4 minutes total. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add milk, lemon juice, and almond extract; mix batter on medium-low until combined.

  • Step 6

    Spread batter evenly over the cooled crust. Drop spoonfuls of cranberry sauce on top and use a knife to swirl it through the batter. Toss almonds evenly over the cheesecake.

  • Step 7

    Bake in the preheated oven until set, 27 to 33 minutes. Let cool, at least 30 minutes. Refrigerate until set, 8 hours to overnight. Cut into bars the next day.
