These Oatmeal Cream Pie Cheesecake Bars are the perfect combination of two of my favorite treats!
Oatmeal Cream Pies are basically from the devil.
They are ridiculously delicious in the most remedial of ways…
I would eat them all day every day if my cholesterol would allow it.
Unfortunately I’d like to live to see the age of 38…so I try and limit my cream pie consumption.
To like 2 a day. That’s fair, right?
Alright I’m kidding, jeez.
I even made Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies a while back. They are amazing. You should make them.
Well, I decided to out-do the Oatmeal Cream Pie.
And stuff it in a brown sugar cheesecake bar.
Take THAT devil. Who’s wearing horns now? Heh.
Oatmeal Cream Pie Cheesecake Bars.
Because I can.
Let’s start with the crust.
Instead of a graham cracker crust, we’re gonna do an oatmeal cookie crust.
Grab some store bought oatmeal cookies. Or fine, make your own..whatever.
Grind those up until they are a fine crumb. I used my blender because it was already on my counter.
I’m lazy like that. Mix the crumbs with some butter and press it evenly into a 9×9 foil-lined pan.
Bake that for a few minutes.
Meanwhile let’s talk about the cheesecake part.
Bake it up and let it cool completely.
Then chill it for at least 3 hours.
I am in love with these bars,
The brown sugar cheesecake is yummy and the oatmeal cookies give it a dense chewiness.
Also, my friend Karly decided to stuff Oatmeal Cream Pies into brownies yesterday, I think she climbed in my brain. Such a random coincidence!
Totally check those out!
