|SASSY SNACKS| Pillsbury Strawberry Margarita Cheesecake Bars


Want to add a dash of SASS to your girls night?! Then try these amazing Strawberry Margarita Cheesecake Bars  courtesy of blogger Grandbaby Cakes!


Ingredients

(1 package) Pillsbury Ready To Bake! refrigerated sugar cookies
(1 1/2 packages) Cream cheese, softened
(1/4 cup) Sugar
(2) Eggs
(1/2 cup) Strawberry tequila drink mix with real fruit
(1 tablespoon) Cornstarch
(1 tablespoon) Tequila
(1 teaspoon) Grated lime peel, if desired
(1 teaspoon) Orange juice or orange flavored liqueur
(1 teaspoon) Vanilla, if desired 

Instructions

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8-inch square pan with cooking spray.

2. With floured fingers, break up cookie dough into pan; press evenly in bottom to form crust. Bake 15 minutes. Remove pan from oven; cool 10 minutes.

3. While crust is cooling, in medium bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar with electric mixer on medium to high speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time on medium speed until well blended. Add remaining ingredients; beat until smooth, scraping down side of bowl occasionally.

4. Pour cream cheese mixture over cooled baked crust; spread evenly with spatula.

5. Bake 40 to 50 minutes longer or until sides of cheesecake are firmly set but center jiggles slightly, checking doneness at 35 minutes. (Cheesecake center will firm during cooling.) Cool about 2 hours or until completely cooled.

6.Refrigerate bars at least 5 hours or overnight before serving for best results. With warm wet knife, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store in refrigerator. 


Side SASS: For all our 21 and under readers don't try this at home but if you do omit the tequila and add 1 lb of fresh strawberries! Taste the exact same! We promise!
