Cream Cheese Cookie Bars

These delicious cookie bars are SO easy! I just made a batch for our new neighbors, and I wanted to share with you.

Cream Cheese Cookie Bars
1 18 oz. tube of chocolate chip cookie dough
1 8 oz. block of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg

Beat cream cheese, sugar and egg until smooth. Cut the tube of cookie dough in half, and press one half of the dough into the bottom of a greased 8x8 pan. Smooth the cream cheese mixture over the cookie dough crust. Crumble the remaining cookie dough over the cream cheese mixture. Bake in 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes. Easy-peasy!
*Note 1: you can substitute 2 cups of your favorite cookie dough for store bought dough.
**Note 2: you can also buy the largest tube of cookie dough and use a 13x9 pan. Your 'cookie to cream cheese ratio' will be different, but it still works with one blcok of cream cheese.
