Swirls-of-Peppermint Cheesecake Bars

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. For crust, in a medium bowl combine crushed cookies and the 2 tablespoons sugar; stir in melted butter. Press mixture evenly onto the bottom of the prepared baking pan. (Use the bottom of a 1/2-cup dry measuring cup to press cookie mixture evenly into pan.)
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine cream cheese, the 1 cup sugar, the vanilla, and peppermint extract; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in milk until combined. Stir in eggs until combined.
  4. Pour cream cheese mixture over crust, spreading evenly. Drop red food coloring in random spots over cream cheese mixture. Using a thin metal spatula, swirl slightly to marble (to ensure clean layers, be careful not to swirl food coloring too deeply into the batter).
  5. Bake about 25 minutes or until edges are puffed and center is set. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 1 hour. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours before serving.
  6. To serve, cut into bars, wiping knife with a damp paper towel between cuts. Sprinkle with crushed candies.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip: (DESIGN DELETE THIS IN LAYOUT WHEN ADD AS TIP WITH PHOTO)

If you prefer, use 2 cups crushed chocolate sandwich cookies with white filling, omit sugar, and use 3 tablespoons melted butter.

To Store:

Do not sprinkle with crushed candies. Place bars in a single layer in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Sprinkle with crushed candies before serving.
