Blackberry Cheesecake Bars – made with a sugar cookie crust, cream cheese filling, and blackberry topping. An incredibly easy dessert to make and seriously divine. These are the absolute perfect treat for Spring!

I’m kind of in shock that this is the first blackberry dessert I have posted in six years of blogging. Okay, I did post a Razzleberry Pie (YUM), but the spotlight wasn’t on the blackberries. I absolutely love blackberries, so I’m thinking I need to up my game. This recipe is definitely one you’ll want to save for later. It almost reminds me of fruit pizza but also a no bake cheesecake. It’s a good mix of the two.

This recipe is made easy with a pre-made sugar cookie crust. The cream cheese filling is creamy and the blackberry topping completes it.

Just look at the filling. Wow! I could eat that plain with the blackberries on top. The sugar cookie definitely adds the perfect flavor though!

Really, all you need to do is bake your sugar cookie crust (you could totally make yours homemade, but I was going for quick), mix up the cream cheese filling and then swirl in the blackberry sauce.

Blackberry cheesecake bars

Yield: 18 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 (16-ounce) package of refrigerated sugar cookie dough

Cheesecake filling:

  • 1 (8-ounce) pacakge cream cheese, at room temp
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla

Blackberry filling

  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 to 3 Tablespoons water

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9x9" pan with non-stick foil. Then evenly press the cookie dough into the pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes clean. Allow to cool. You can place in the freezer for 15 minutes to help it cool faster.

For the cream cheese filling, add the heavy cream in a mixing bowl and beat for 2 to 3 minutes, or until a whisk forms. Then beat in the cream cheese and mix until smooth. Next add the sugar, powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth and creamy. Then spread over the top of the sugar cookie. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.

For the blackberry filling, combine the blackberries, sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Break down the blackberries with the back of your spoon.

Next, add spoonfuls of the blackberry filling on top the cheesecake filling. Then swirl using a knife to get the marble effect. Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours before cutting.

Once cut into bars, you can add a blackberry on top. Store in the refrigerator.

    These look absolutely devine! I’ve lived for 4 years where there are no blackberries to go and pick.. I love fresh ones and grew up picking them by our town in Oregon. Today, I just found a bunch of them about 12 miles from where I live, by a river! I’m so thrilled and excited to have some to pick again and this dessert will be awesome! Can hardly wait.

    Could you make these with fresh strawberry or frozen?

      You could use either! Just substitute an equal amount of strawberries for the blackberries in the filling! If you wanted to add some more strawberries on top, I’d use fresh. :)
