If you enjoy these unicorn sugar cookie cheesecake bars, I bet that you would also love our cookie dough mini cheesecakes. They are incredibly delicious and easy to make as well.
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9 x 13 baking pan with parchment paper and coat with nonstick spray; set aside.
- Add the sugar cookie dough and 3 Tablespoons of sprinkles to a large bowl. Using your hands, knead the sprinkles into the cookie dough.
- Press ½ of the cookie dough into the bottom of the baking dish in an even layer. Set aside the remaining dough.
- In a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar until well combined, about 1 minute. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing until smooth and combined.
- Divide batter into 3 bowls. Stir a few drops of food coloring gel into each bowl until your reach the desired shade.
- Using a tablespoon, drop the batter on top of the cookie dough layer, alternating colors.
- Crumble the remaining cookie dough evenly over the top of the bars.
- Top with some more sprinkles.
- Bake for 40 minutes, or until cookies are lightly golden. Remove from the oven and place cool on a cooling rack to cool for 1 hour. Then transfer the bars to the refrigerator to chill for at least 3 hours (overnight works too) before slicing and serving.
To store, place bars in an airtight container or cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
