Rainbow Vanilla Cheesecake Bars

This is a fun little cake you can make for a special occasion or for a holiday.  You can use any color or color combinations you like.
I am thinking some school colors would be a lot of fun or red and green for Christmas.
Gel colors are better to use in this recipe than food coloring because food coloring will make the batter too thin.
Pull out the food processor and crush 30 oreo cookies.  Use the vanilla ones. I have seen vanilla birthday cake ones and I think they might be good to use too.

All nice and crushed.  BTW using 30 cookies leaves you a couple to snack on.
Press the cookies in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.
You have a nice smooth layer.
Now for the filling.  Start with 3-8oz pkg of softened cream cheese.
1 1/2 cups sugar
Beat that well.
3 eggs
3 Tablespoons sour cream
3 Tablespoons four
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Spoon about half the mixture over the cookies.  I don't think I used enough of this white layer.
Divide the remaining between 6 bowls, or less if you plan on using less colors.
I added the gel colors to the batter.
Drop by tablespoonfuls on top of the white layer.
Keep plopping and drizzling the colors.
Until you have used them all.
Then using a knife twist and pull through to make swirls in the batter.  Then place in a preheated 325 oven.  Bake for 40-45 minutes.  Then cool 2 hours on the counter and in the fridge for another 4 hours.  It is best if you make it the night before you want to serve it.
This is the bars straight from the oven.
It looks really pretty with all the colors.
