These strawberry shortcake bars are very easy to make and perfect to take to a party or meal. Rich and creamy homemade cheesecake with a swirl of sweet strawberry. Once chilled, these cheesecake bars are cut into perfect slices! I used chocolate graham crackers for the crust which pairs very well with the strawberry, but regular graham crackers would work perfectly too. Strawberry Shortcake Bars will be a huge hit at your next gathering!

Start by preparing the crust, followed by the cheesecake mixture. Smooth the cheesecake mixture over the crust.

Next, place small tablespoons of hot strawberry jam on top and rotate with a butter knife.

Bake for about thirty minutes, until the edges are firm but the center is still slightly loose.

Let cool and refrigerate 2-3 hours or overnight.

Then cut and enjoy! This recipe makes 18 generously sized cheesecake bars. You can cut them smaller or larger depending on preference.
