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…

 

MY OTHER RECIPES

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.

Let’s start with the crust.

Instead of a graham cracker crust, we’re gonna do an oatmeal cookie crust.

Y’all.

I have decided that life needs an oatmeal cookie crust. photo IMG_1464_zpsa6f1d459.jpg

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. photo IMG_1468_zps00e438ae.jpgMix 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.

 

I amped it up a litte with some sweetened condensed milk. photo IMG_1472_zpseb3208a5.jpgMix some of that in with some cream cheese, brown sugar, eggs…

Fold those into the cheesecake batter… photo IMG_1478_zpsdc1b06d4.jpg

And pour it onto your partially baked crust… photo IMG_1480_zps0f201982.jpg

Bake it up and let it cool completely.

Then chill it for at least 3 hours.

 

When you’re ready to cut it into squares remove it from the pan and peel back the foil… photo IMG_1488_zpsa24ba33e.jpgGorgeous, I tell you…

  1. So, I’m really glad that you used the organic sweetened condensed milk here. It really ups the health factor in the oatmeal cream pies. 😉

    Also, I hate you for outdoing me in the cream pie department. These win the trophy in my imaginary oatmeal cream pie bake off that we just did.

  2. Maegan @ The BakerMama

    These definitely look dangerously delicious! Combining oatmeal cream pies with cheesecake is absolutely brilliant!

  3. Oh my gosh, I am madly in love with oatmeal cream pies. These bars look incredible. I always wish they had oatmeal cream pies as a mix in at Coldstone, especially during the fall when they have pumpkin ice cream. What’s wrong with them? I cannot wait to try this recipe!

  4. So these….are like the most perfect thing ever. I don’t even KEEP Oatmeal Cream Pies in the house because I will inhale ALLLLLL of them. IF they’re in cheesecake I’m in huge trouble. (Yummy trouble, but huge all the same)

    Oh my – these are calling my name – Oh my – need to run to the store. I have to bake for bingo tomorrow and may need to try these! Is TJ’s sweetened condense milk really that good?

  6. These are ridiculous. In the best way possible.
    I have a secret love for those store bought iced oatmeal cookies.
    I want to make these for breakfast and lunch and dinner and brinner and brunch and linner.

    is that wrong?

    I abso-frcikin-lutely love the way you write….and bake. Marry me? No hanky panky. Even though men are a complete pain, I still hanky their panky. You, however; are my dream wife. Weird that.
