My husband & I like these cookie bars because the cookie mix
has just the right amount of spice.

How to Make Gingerbread Cheesecake Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray an 8" square pan (I used a glass one) with Baker's Joy or any cooking spray with flour. Combine cookie mix, butter, half and half and egg. Mix until well blended. Stir in nuts. Spread 1/2 of cookie dough in bottom of pan and halfway up the side of the pan.
  2. Filling:
    Combine cream cheese and sugar; beat until blended. Add vanilla, butter extract, egg, and cornstarch; beat until smooth. Spread mixture over cookie dough. Using a spoon, drop spoonfuls of remaining cookie dough on top of cream cheese mixture. Bake 55-60 minutes or until mixture is set. Remove to wire rack. Cool completely.
  3. Frosting:
    Beat cream cheese and butter until blended.
    Gradually, mix in powdered sugar. Stir in vanilla and half and half. Frost cookie bars. Cover and store in refrigerator. 9 -12 bars
  4. Note: Betty Crocker Gingerbread Cookie Mix is available in stores during the holiday season.

    Variation: Substitute Betty Crocker Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix.
