Yum! Not sure where I found this recipe, but it's a keeper. My kids love them of course. Kids and cookie dough just go together.

The recipe called for graham cracker crumbs, I was fresh out so improvised with Nilla wafer crumbs. I actually think I like them better this way.


Enjoy!

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 325 degree F.

For the crust - Mix the graham cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar.
2Press firmly into the bottom of a greased 9x9 inch baking pan. Bake for 5 minutes.
3Cream together well the cream cheese and 1/3 cup sugar.
4Add the egg and vanilla; mix until well blended.


Spread evenly over the graham crumb crust.
5Cream together very well: butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract.

Fold in 3/4 cup flour and salt just until a dough forms. Mix in the chocolate chips.
6Pick up the cookie dough in handfuls and press into a ball. Break off small nuggets of the dough and sprinkle these evenly over the cheesecake layer.
7Bake at 325 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until the cookie dough just begins to brown on top. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares or bars.
8Store in airtight container if not freezing.

The recipe calls for a 9 x 9 pan. I used a 9 x 13 baking dish. For a thicker bar, use the 9 x 9. I didn't have one.
9Enjoy!
