Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 2 ½ cups cinnamon graham cracker crumbs (about 18 full size crackers)
  • ½ cup melted butter

For the filling:

  • 2 packages (8 ounce each) cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the cookie dough:

  • ¾ cup butter flavored Crisco
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups quick cook oatmeal
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 ½ cup raisins

Instructions

  1. Line a 13x9 baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside. Preheat oven for 350 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, pulse graham crackers until fine crumbs. Add in melted butter and pulse until combined.
  3. Press crumbs into bottom of prepared baking dish. Using palm of your hand (or bottom of a cup) press crumbs firmly until they are pressed into the bottom of the pan.
  4. For the cheesecake filling, beat cream cheese with sugar, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon using the whisk attachment of an electric mixer. Beat until fluffy and smooth (about 3-4 minutes). Pour over graham crust.
  5. For the cookie dough, beat Crisco with sugars for 2 minutes. Add egg, milk, and vanilla and beat thoroughly. Add in flour, oatmeal, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg and beat until fully combined. Fold in raisins. Scoop dough by large spoonfuls onto the top of the cheesecake layer. Try to use your fingertips to spread gently until cheesecake layer if fully covered.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes, middle may still "jiggle." That's okay. You want the cookie layer to be completely cooked and browned. Remove from oven and cool completely. Once cooled, cover with foil and refrigerate for 4 hours, or overnight. Cut into squares and enjoy. Keep leftover bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

  1. I’m with your kiddos on this one, while oatmeal raisins are not for me I know a few people who would die for these. Cookies plus cheesecake are such a fab combo! 

  2. It’s bittersweet to watch our kids get older and move on.  On one hand it is sad because seriously how does time go so quickly…it seems like just yesterday they were tiny and needed me every second of the day.  And on the other hand it is exciting to see the changes and growth in them as they get older.  We may not have a human designed parenting manual…but thank goodness for the Bible and God’s truths that we can instill in our children.  Love these fun bars…I’m a raisin fan!!!!

  3. Oatmeal raisin cookies are my all-time faves, so these look heavenly to me!! Definitely pinning and making soon!

    1. If you love Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I’m pretty sure you’ll love these bars. Thanks for pinning 🙂

  4. As of Thursday I will have a senior in high school, another entering in, one who flew the cuckoo’s nest, one in prek and a second grader. I SO feel you! No one gave us a manual and no one ever told us how hard it would be to let go. Thanks for sharing!

  5. If there’;s a guidebook out there, can you hand it over? I think we do the best we can, and that’s really going to have to be enough. Because mom guilt is born the exact same minute our children are, and if we’re feeling worried about being the best we can be, we’re probably doing really well.
    And we deserve these treats for ourselves, too. These are so  thick and make me very happy. I love cheesecake bars more than almost anything!
