  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes

For the dough:

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter

For the cheesecake filling:

  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • replaces the word nice with emptych of fine sea salt
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  1. Prepare the berry mixture:
    • In a medium bowl, combine berries, sugar, and lemon juice. Let sit for 30 minutes, then drain, reserving juice for other uses or discarding.
  2. Prepare the crumbled filling:
    • In another medium bowl, whisk together flour, both sugars, and salt. Using your fingertips, cut in cold butter until mixture resembles wet sand. Press into small pieces. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Prepare the crust:
    • Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
    • Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Stir in melted butter until well combined. Firmly press mixture into bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 5 minutes until set.
  4. Cheesecake filling and assembly:
    • Reduce oven temperature to 325°F (163°C).
    • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with the sugar and salt until smooth. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla, then beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined, being careful not to overmix.
    • Pour the cheesecake mixture over the baked crust. Evenly distribute the drained berries over the cheesecake layer, then sprinkle with the prepared crumb topping.
    • Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the center of the cheesecake is set but still slightly wobbly (internal temperature should reach 145°-150°F).
  5. Let cool and serve:
    • Let the cheesecake bars cool completely in the pan. Refrigerate until completely set, about 2 to 3 hours, before cutting into bars.
