remember slutty brownies? of course you do. who could forget those? thanks to jessica simpson and rose over at the londoner, those sinfully glorious spanx-busters have become a by-word for ‘so damn delicious it’s indecent’. i make them a lot. too much. it’s not advisable really.
as i’ve mentioned before though, i tire of chocolate. controversial, i know. but cheesecake, i don’t tire of. i love me some cheesecake.
i can pass up chocolate on a dessert menu, but not cheesecake. put down your pitchforks people, i realise i’m strange.
i may just convince you to join the cheesecake cheerleaders, though, with this recipe. presenting… slutty cheesecake bars. the slutty brownie’s cheeky little sister.
these beat a regular old cheesecake any day – who could go back to dull crumb crust after eating a cookie dough one, i ask you? and an oreo-stuffed anything is pure, carnal pleasure.
slutty cheesecake bars
- 2 packets of store-bought chocolate-chip cookie dough mix (i use this one) or 400g of home-made (**see note below)
- 2 packets of oreo cookies
- 600g cream cheese, room temperature
- 2/3 cup caster (superfine) sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp good quality vanilla extract
pre-heat the oven to 175c and line a 11x7inch baking pan. prepare the cookie dough to packet instructions (**if you’re using the same brand as me, i added a little extra water and a small splash of vegetable oil).
press the cookie dough into the pan, so it is flat and even.
in a mixing bowl or freestanding mixer beat the cream cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla so combined and smooth. pour cheesecake batter over oreos.
you should have enough oreos left over in the packet for decorating (unless, like me, you ate them as a chef’s snack and had to go out and purchase more). chop the remaining oreos up roughly and sprinkle over the cheesecake.
return the pan to the oven and bake for 30-35 mins. allow to cool before cutting into bars.
these are best eaten on the day of baking, when they’re at room temperature and a little gooey. if you have any left over (doubtful) store them in the fridge. but trust me, you won’t.
