Chocolate Chip Cheescake Bars

My sister saw these on For The Love of Cooking. Best Cookie Bars EVER.
Just a warning, we finished these off in one afternoon!

It's been stuck in my head all week!


Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough:
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar, packed
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
Cheesecake Filling:
  • 10 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Oil an 8 inch square baking pan.
Prepare the chocolate chip cookie dough. Beat the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, salt, and vanilla together using a mixer until creamy and smooth. Add the flour to the butter mixture until just combined then add the chocolate chips and mix. Spread half of the mixture in the 8 inch square pan.
For the cheesecake filling, place the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla together into a bowl then beat, using a mixer, until creamy and smooth. Carefully spread the cheesecake batter onto the cookie dough. Spread the remaining cookie dough on top. Place into the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until the top (cookie dough) feels dry and firm and the entire pan looks set if given a gentle shake. Move bars to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely. Lift bars out by the overhang; slice and store in the refrigerator. Serve cold or at room temperature. Enjoy.
