Sugar cookie cheesecake bars your holiday party will love

Luscious cheesecake filling on top of festive sugar cookie bars makes an amazing holiday dessert!

Hey guys!! It is almost Christmas!! I am soo excited!! Of course once December rolls around it's all sugar plums and candy canes, gingerbread houses and hot chocolate. That is why this dessert is perfect for the holidays!

We have big family gatherings for the holidays and I love hosting Christmas Eve and really wowing everyone with new and delicious desserts and this is certainly going on the holiday table this year. We spend Christmas day at my grandparents and this would also make the perfect dessert to bring because it travels so well! You could take this to any holiday party this season because it makes a ton and is so easy to transport.

It uses store bought sugar cookie mix which makes life so much easier and you add the sprinkles because what is more festive than sprinkles?

I absolutely love this cheesecake topping, it is my go to topping for all sorts of things, cookie cups, these bars, trifles, a shoe, it is awesome on anything!

I mix up 2 batches of sugar cookie mix and spread it into a jelly roll pan.

Once baked and cooled I top it with my super delicious no bake cheesecake mix which is to die for!
