Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars

Last, but certainly not least, on the kids’ teachers’ gift plates are these chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake bars. (The other treats on the gift plates were Lemon and Blueberry Bars with a Coconut Crust, Triple Chocolate Cookies, and White Chocolate Dipped Pretzels). These cheesecake bars were fun and simple to make and tasted amazing! I found the recipe on My Baking Addictionand knew instantly they would be a bit hit with all of the teachers. I look forward to making these again for my family.

Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups of graham crackers crumbs
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
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. Line an 8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper, allowing a little overhang, then spray the paper and dish with cooking spray.

Combine the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter until mixed thoroughly. Firmly press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Place into the oven and bake for 6 minutes. Remove pan and set aside to cool. DO NOT TURN YOUR OVEN OFF.

While the crust is cooling, 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. Set aside.

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 prepared crust.

 

Using your hand to form clumps, distribute the cookie dough evenly in clumps on the top of the cheesecake batter until you use all of the dough.

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.

    Many times I have wished I never found this recipe. After a rough-ish day with my three children and a week of my youngest being sick, I made an 8×8 pan of these and ate almost the whole thing!

    Love this recipe. I am a teacher and I made this for my students on my birthday last year. My students from last year told my students this year about it and they are waiting for the cake to come to school because they know my birthday is soon. I am making it as we speak! Thanks for this one. It is definitely a keeper.
