Instructions:

  1. Preheat Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  1. Prepare Crust:
  • In a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and granulated sugar. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared baking dish to create the crust.
  1. Bake Crust:
  • Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove and let it cool while you prepare the cheesecake filling.
  1. Prepare Cheesecake Filling:
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened Philadelphia cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Add granulated sugar and vanilla extract, continuing to beat until well combined.
  1. Add Eggs:
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Ensure a smooth and velvety consistency.
  1. Pour Filling Over Crust:
  • Pour the cream cheese filling over the baked crust, spreading it evenly with a spatula.

  • While the cheesecake is baking, prepare the topping by mixing sour cream, sugar, and vanilla extract in a bowl.
  1. Apply Topping:
  • After the initial baking time, carefully spread the sour cream topping over the partially baked cheesecake. Return it to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  1. Cool and Refrigerate:
    • Allow the cheesecake bars to cool completely at room temperature. Once cooled, refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to set.
