Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake Bars


When I received an email from a friend menu planning for a then upcoming Thanksmas dinner with friends, I immediately jumped in and said I'd bring dessert. As I always do. But of course, I searched and searched for ideas, and nothing sounded just right to appeal to a group of people. All of a sudden it's like the day before and I still need to shop and bake. I wanted to do a cheesecake, but with everything going on I didn't know if I'd have time. So I turned to trusty Pinterest and just typed in Cheesecake Bars.

As soon as I saw these I knew I had to make them. I emailed a picture to Rob and all he replied was "Yep!".

I am so glad that I slacked and slacked on deciding, because these were simply amazing. And, they don't require any out of the ordinary ingredients, so I had everything on hand! I realize not everyone had Graham Crackers in their pantry but a) why not, they're delicious!? and b) just a quick stop and you're good to go!

These cheesecake bars are quick, simple and so delicious. No one has to know how quick and simple they are!

Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake Bars
Ingredients:
Graham Cracker Crust
12 graham crackers
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Cinnamon Roll filling
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon flour
Cheesecake 
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 egg, at room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 pan with foil, and grease with cooking spray.

Pulse graham crackers in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Add sugar and cinnamon and pulse. Add melted butter and pulse until well combined. Press mixure into prepared pan, using a flat hard surface to really press it down, such as a glass cup! Bake for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare cinnamon roll filling by combining butter, cinnamon and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until butter is melted and ingredients are combined. Stir in vanilla and flour.

In a large bowl beat together egg and sugar until foamy. Add cream cheese and vanilla and beat with a mixer on low until smooth.

Pour mixture on top of graham cracker crust. Drizzle with cinnamon roll filling and use a toothpick to swirl in to the cheesecake layer.

Bake 20 minutes or until set. Allow to cook 30 minutes and then move to refrigerator to continue cooling for a few hours.

When completely cool, cut and serve!

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too! White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling Ingredients: 1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor 1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened 1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed 3 oz. White Chocolate, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla Directions: Beat softened cream cheese and vanilla with mixer until well blended and light (a few minutes). Beat in pudding mix until fully incorporated. Stir in melted white chocolate. Fold in thawed Cool Whip Allow to set in fridge for a few hours, but don't let it get

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
