Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Bars

Recipe inspired by Paula Deen.  WARNING: BUTTER AHEAD.



“It’s hot…can I put it in the fridge?”
– Leandro (10 minutes after it came out of the oven)

“Muy rico”
– Leandro’s mom (after it had chilled)


3 eggs
8 oz cream cheese
4 oz plain yogurt (Greek, if you can get it)
2 tsp vanilla
2/3 c powdered sugar
200 g butter (1.75 sticks) – room temperature
1 package yellow cake mix
1 c dulce de leche repostero (do not use clasico or you will regret it)

  1. Preheat oven to “medium-low.”  Maybe 300°?
  2. Mix together TWO (just two) of the eggs with the cream cheese, yogurt, vanilla, and powered sugar with a handheld mixer.
  3. Butter your cake pan and coat it with flour (or a spoonful of cake mix).
  4. In another bowl, cream together the butter and remaining egg.  Add the cake mix.  It should resemble cookie dough.
  5. Press the cookie dough-esque mixture into the bottom of the pan.  Spread the dulce de leche on top, and then pour the cheesecake mixture overtop of that.
  6. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the center looks mostly set.
Do not eat warm.  Unless it’s 11pm and you really want sugar.
