CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE CHEESECAKE BARS

Ingredients 
  • chocolate chip cookie dough – I used store bought but you can certainly use homemade chocolate chip cookie dough instead
  • cream cheese – I used the full fat cream cheese for these easy cheesecake bars. You can however use reduced fat cream cheese if you prefer but not fat-free. It just won’t turn out right.
  • granulated sugar – just enough to sweeten the cheesecake layer
  • egg – to bind the cheesecake together
  • vanilla extract – to add depth of flavor and give it a more homemade taste
Instruction
  • I made these cheesecake bars in a 9-inch square pan. You can use an 8-inch square pan if you want slightly thicker bars. Add 2 minutes to the baking time.
  • Make sure to let these bars chill completely so they cut up cleanly. Clean your knife in between cuts as well.
  • Use high quality refrigerated cookie dough for the best results.
