Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars

Posted on November 12, 2012
Hi, Everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! With the holidays approaching so quickly, I’ve been looking for new recipes to try out, and am sharing one with you today! I’ve seen these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars all over Pinterest and they sounded so delicious I just had to give them a try! Two of my favorite desserts (cheesecake and chocolate chip cookies) combined into one delicious dessert?! Sounds good to me! And they turned out just as good as they sounded! A graham cracker crust layered with a layer or vanilla flavored cheesecake topped with a gooey chocolate chip cookie dough layer!

CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH
CHEESECAKE BARS
(Recipe from My Baking Addiction)
 .
YOU WILL NEED:
Crust:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
5 tbs unsalted butter, melted
 .
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Layer:
1/3 cup light brown sugar
3 tbs granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
5 tbs unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
 ,
Cheesecake Layer:
10oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
 ;
DIRECTIONS
 .
1. Start with the graham cracker crust. First, line an 8inch baking pan with parchment paper. Preheat your oven to 325 deg F. Combine the melted butter with the graham cracker crumbs. Pour the crumbs into the prepared pan and press them into it to make an even crust layer. Bake for 6 minutes, then take it out of the oven and set it aside.
 .
2. Next, prepare the cheesecake layer. In your electric mixer bowl, combine the softened cream cheese (it NEEDS to be softened otherwise you will have clumps in this layer), sugar, egg and vanilla until you have a light, smooth mixture. Pour it on top of the graham cracker crust, and even it out with a spatula.
 .
3. Lastly, prepare the cookie dough layer. In your electric mixer bowl, cream together the brown sugar, granulated sugar, butter and vanilla extract. Once you have a smooth mixture, add in the flour, salt, then the chocolate chips, until a dough forms. Make little patties out of the dough, flatten them out and lay each on top of the cheesecake layer dough, covering the whole surface of the cheesecake layer with the cookie dough.
 .
4. Bake until the top of the dessert is dry and the middle has baked through (the original recipe said to bake for 30 minutes, but I had to bake it for about 50 minutes. It depends on your oven, so just watch it as it bakes!) Once done, let the bars cool, cut them into pieces and refrigerate!

Happy Baking, Everyone!
