- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 2 cups cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup cherry pie filling
- Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C) and line a 9×9-inch (23×23 cm) baking pan with parchment paper.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press this mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan to form the crust.
- In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract and flour until fully combined.
- Pour the cream cheese mixture over the crust in the pan.
- Spoon the cherry pie filling over the cream cheese layer, then use a knife to gently swirl it into the mixture to create a marbled effect.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the edges are set, and the center is slightly jiggly.
- Allow the bars to cool completely in the pan, then refrigerate for a few hours or overnight before cutting into squares.
