Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

I love a simple, easy and yummy dessert. I made 50+ chocolate chip cheesecake bars on Monday, and praise the Lord, they definitely are simple and easy! And oh, are they yummy! Here you go:

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars
1 small roll (16-18 oz) refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
1 8 oz. box cream cheese
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla (opt)

Press half of the cookie dough into a lightly greased 8x8 pan. Beat cream cheese, egg, sugar and vanilla on medium speed until well-mixed and creamy. Spread cream cheese mixture over cookie dough. Crumble remaining cookie dough over the top of the cream cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool, cut into bars, and enjoy!

Notes: 2 cups of cookie dough can be substituted for the refrigerated cookie dough. You can use the large, family size cookie dough with the same amount of cream cheese, but the cookie to cream cheese ratio will be different. I add a little bit of vanilla to give richness to the cream cheese, but if you like a strong cream cheese flavor you can leave it out.

Five ingredients in this easy dessert. It Works for Me!
