How To Make The Strawberry Churro Cheesecake Bar Recipe From TikTok

For the cheesecake filling, you’ll need:

  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup strawberry purée
  • Drops of pink food dye
  • 1 package or three sheets of crescent roll dough
  • 2-4 tbsp cinnamon sugar
  • Fresh strawberry garnish
  • Whipped cream

For the frosting, you’ll need:

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup sugar

For the strawberry crunch topping, you’ll need:

  • 15 gold Oreo's (with filling)
  • 2 tbsp room temp, unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 tbsp strawberry Jell-o
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • Drops of pink food color
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees farenheit.
  2. To begin the cheesecake filling, blend together the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla.
  3. In a blender, purée strawberries, and then mix them into the cream cheese mixture with a few drops of pink food dye.
  4. In a buttered 9x13 inch pan, sprinkle a layer of cinnamon sugar to cover the bottom of the pan.
  5. On top of the cinnamon sugar, place a layer of crescent roll dough as the base. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes.

  7. Halfway through baking, cover the top with aluminum foil to prevent burning. Set aside and let cool while you prep the toppings.
  8. To make the frosting, whip together the sugar and cream cheese until smooth.

  10. Cut the cheesecake bars into squares and spread about a tablespoon of frosting on the top of each bar.
