Ingredients

  • cup  crushed graham crackers
  • tablespoons  melted butter
  • tablespoons  packed brown sugar
  • 8 oz  bricks of cream cheese
  • 3/4  cup  sugar
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • cup  sour cream or PLAIN Greek yogurt
  • teaspoon  vanilla
  • eggs
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons  all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons  cornstarch

Instructions

  • Mix together your crushed graham crackers, melted butter and brown sugar until they are well combined
  • Lightly spray your 6 quart crock pot (I used Cera, my 6 Quart Crock Pot with Ceramic Coated Pot)
  • Mix together your cream cheese and sugar in a large mixing bowl (I used my Kitchen-Aid mixer)
  • Then add your ricotta, sour cream or Greek yogurt and vanilla, beat until smooth, scraping sides as needed
  • Add one egg, blending it completely before adding the next
  • Then beat in your flour and cornstarch
  • Pour your batter over your graham cracker crust
  • Put a couple of paper towels under the lid and cover
  • Cook on low for 3-4 hours or until the center is almost set (Carefully rotate your crock as needed throughout cooking to reduce uneven cooking)
  • Once cooking is done, carefully remove lid (do not let lid liquid drip into cheesecake) and place a clean cooking towel over the top of the crock (Be careful not to let the towel touch the top of the cake and cool for one hour)
  • Remove crock from unit and let it cool completely before placing in the fridge to chill for a few hours or overnight
  • Once your cheesecake bars are chilled, top with cherry pie filling and slice into bars

Notes

  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
