These Cheesecake Cookie Bars dotted with white chocolate chips and sprinkled with raspberries are a perfect sweet treat to kick off summer. The recipe is from What’s Gaby Cooking’s brand new cookbook. I met Gaby a few years ago and she is just the cutest. And a force when it comes to food. She was in town a couple of weeks ago for her book signing so I stopped in to give her a hug and say hi. And of course, I had to bake something from her beautiful book, which was also photographed by my chocolate loving friend, Matt Armendariz. These besties are a dynamic duo so check them out.
The recipe calls for easy ingredients. Always a win. Eggs, butter, vanilla, sugar, brown sugar, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. And let’s not forget the stars. Cream Cheese, white chocolate chips and fresh raspberries.
Once you mix up the cookie dough, stir in most of the white chocolate chips.
Spread a little more than half of the cookie dough in the bottom of a 9 X 13 inch baking pan. Spread the cheesecake layer on top after that. Then crumble the remaining cookie dough on the very top.
Sprinkle more white chocolate chips and raspberries on the top and bake away!
Remove from the oven to cool and then chill in the fridge before cutting into bars.
OMGoodness! look at those beauties. And so so good, too!

Can the raspberries be substituted for strawberries?
I made these today and they were delicious. I also made good use of a little leftover cookie dough and those cookies were excellent too. Bonus!
Oh my, these bars look so delicious and decadent! YUM!
This looks so refreshing. Can we make it without eggs? If yes what can I use to replace eggs? Thanks!
Great flavor combination — these look so good.
This is my husband’s absolute favorite! Perfect for the upcoming 4th of July celebrations! Thank you!
