Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.

Recipe 21.

Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars (adapted from Heat Oven to 350).

Seriously, go back and read the name of this. Cheesecake. Chocolate chip. Cookie. Bar. I have no words except for these: Heavenly deliciousness in your mouth.


1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup butter flavor shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour
2 cups chocolate chips

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla

Cream together butter, shortening, sugars, vanilla and salt in a large bowl. Beat in the egg, then the baking soda and flour. Mix in the chocolate chips, divide the dough in half, and set aside.

In a separate bowl, cream the cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar. Beat in 1 egg and 1/2 tsp vanilla.

Spread 1/2 the cookie dough on the bottom of a 9x13 pan. 

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the cookie dough.

Flatten chunks of the remaining cookie dough and place them near each other on top of the cream cheese layer. Just try to cover the surface as well as possible.

Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes or until the top is browning. Cool completely, store in the refrigerator. Try not to eat them all in one sitting.
