pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ oatmeal chocolate chip cookie mix
1
egg
2
packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1
cup sugar
2

1
teaspoon vanilla

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.

Expert Tips

Use a wet knife for cutting cheesecake bars, wiping off crumbs after each cut.

Cold butter is needed to create a "just right" streusel texture and a crust that's easy to handle.
