No-Bake Cookies & Cream Cheesecake Bars

Why is it that during one of the hottest weekends of the summer, I decided to slow roast my surplus of heirloom tomatoes?

Maybe I should have thought twice before leaving the oven on for 2 hours in the middle of the afternoon!

Our poor air-conditioning was working overtime, so I decided the oven needed to be off.

It was perfect timing to make a batch of no-bake cheesecake bars.

Besides giving the oven a break, I wanted to whip up a dessert that didn’t require much effort.

With the help of the food processor, I crumbled chocolate sandwich cookies for the crust and the filling.

I used an electric mixer to combine cream cheese and marshmallow fluff before folding in the cookies.

The bars were sweet, cool and didn’t last very long stored in the back of the refrigerator.
