Food Friday: Recipe for Chocolate Chip Cheese Bars

Kelsey just made these for our company who are coming on Monday night (planning to freeze them). They’re scrumptious! Although the recipe calls for Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, she made our own homemade recipe. (See the note below: If you use homemade cookie dough, you’ll need more than the recipe calls for.)

Chocolate Chip Cheese Bars
Yield: 12-16 servings (These are *rich*!)

Ingredients:
1 tube (18 ounces) Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg

Directions:

  • Cut cookie dough in half.  For crust, press half of the dough onto the bottom of a greased 8-inch square baking pan.
  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and egg until smooth.  Spread over crust.  Crumble remaining dough over top.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool on a wire rack.  Refrigerate leftovers.

Note: 2 cups of your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough can be substituted for the refrigerated dough.
