Orange Creamsicle Cheesecake Bars

You know those orange creamsicle ice pops? Along with the strawberry shortcake ones, they were a delicacy when I was growing up. I honestly haven’t checked the frozen section to see if either are still around, but the prior was the inspiration for these orange creamsicle cheesecake bars.

With a golden Oreo crust, the cream cheese filling is made orange in color and flavor with the help of real orange zest, orange extract, and a little food coloring. But make sure to reserve a little bit plain to make that creamy white swirl on top.

Ingredients

CRUST

  • 8 oz. (approximately 16) whole golden Oreos, finely ground in food processor
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

FILLING

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving overhang on opposite sides, and lightly grease. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cookie crumbs and melted butter until crumbs are evenly moistened. Press evenly into prepared pan. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until set and just barely golden. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  3. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, yogurt, sugar, and flour until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, and vanilla beating on low speed just until blended.
  4. Remove 1/2 cup plain batter and place in small bowl. Into the remaining batter, whisk in the orange extract and zest until well incorporated. Add just enough red and yellow food coloring to reach desired orange color. Spoon orange batter into crust and top with spoonfuls of reserved plain batter. Cut through batters with knife several times for marble effect.
  5. Bake 35-40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool completely on wire rack. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight before serving.
