  • 2 sticks (226 grams) of butter, softened
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 cups (360 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • Food coloring gels (aqua, purple, and pink)
  • Sprinkles for decoration
For the Cheesecake Filling:
  • 16 ounces (453 grams) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. Preparation:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C). Butter an 8×11-inch baking dish or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Cookie Dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, vanilla extract, and egg until light and fluffy. Gradually mix in the flour and baking powder until a soft dough forms.
    • Divide the dough into portions and color one part purple and another part aqua using the food coloring gels.
  3. Layering:
    • Press the purple dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared dish.
    • In another bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the cheesecake filling until smooth. Pour this mixture over the purple cookie dough layer.
    • Add a few drops of pink food coloring to the cheesecake filling and use a toothpick or knife to create a marble effect.
  4. Top Layer:
    • Roll out the aqua-colored dough and carefully place it over the cheesecake filling, covering it completely.
    • Generously sprinkle the top with your choice of colorful sprinkles.
  5. Baking:
    • Place the dish in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the filling is set.
    • Allow the bars to cool completely in the pan before slicing into squares.


  • Room Temperature Ingredients: For smoother mixing and more consistent results, ensure all ingredients, especially the cream cheese and eggs, are at room temperature.
  • Food Coloring: Add food coloring gel sparingly for subtle hues or more for vibrant, bold colors. Mix thoroughly to ensure even distribution in the dough.
  • Even Layers: Smooth out the cheesecake layer carefully to ensure an even texture throughout when baked.
