These unicorn cheesecake bars are a delicious combination of sugar cookies and cheesecake — decorated to give them a magical unicorn look.

Ingredients
 

  • 2 16.5 ounce packages prepared sugar cookie dough, almost at room temperature
  • 2 8 ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • purple pink, and blue gel food coloring
  • rainbow sprinkles

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

To store, place bars in an airtight container or cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
