Chocolate chip cheesecake cookie bars

This is a family fav. I make these cookie bars every couple of weeks for family gatherings and they are as soon as I take them out of the fridge. I usually make them with the kiddies, which they love helping.
The only problem is you have to chill them for 2 hours. Which is a lifetime to them. Then I have to fight the adults off firsts dibs. I used a clear vanilla  extract for the cream cheese mixture. It’s a easy recipe and really delicious .

start of cookie batter

flour pan and hands. press dough out in pan
spread cream cheese mixture of 1 half of dough
Sprinkle the rest of the dough over cream cheese

Cool for 30 mins then chill for 2 hours


package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups of of cookie dough{See chocolate chip cookies recipe or use frozen store brought}
1 teaspoon of clear vanilla  extract  

Preheat oven at 350  Pan size- 9 or 8 inch 
In small bowl, beat cream cheese,sugar and egg,with mixer, until smooth.
In a square pan, split in half the cookie dough. With lightly floured hands press half of the dough evenly
in the bottom of the pan. Then spread cream cheese mixture on top of dough. Crumble remaining dough over cream cheese mixture and bake for 35- 40 mins or until lightly golden brown.
Take out and cool for about 30 mins. Then chill in fridge for 2 hours.
