I received this recipe from a friend about 10 years ago. I think that the cookie dough recipe is from Crisco, but the cream cheese filling was added along the way. It is a great favorite in my family.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
Bring a regular chocolate chip cookie bar to a whole new level of yumminess by adding a layer of cheesecake to the center. The perfect treat for any time of the year. The cookie layer is a tender cookie bar (almost like a brookie) and full of rich flavor. Creamy and rich, the cream cheese layer is the perfect mate to the cookie layer. These are rich and addictive.

How To Make chocolate chip cream cheese brownies
Test Kitchen Tips
Every oven is different. Ours were done at 45 minutes so we suggest keeping an eye on them while baking.
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients for chocolate chip cookies in the order listed above. Divide into two parts and set aside.
In a second bowl, mix all cream cheese filling ingredients until smooth.
Spread one part of cookie dough on the bottom of greased 13 X 9 pan. (Mine measures 13 3/4 by 9 1/2). It will help if your hands are wet, otherwise, the dough will stick to your fingers.
Pour the cream cheese filling over the cookie dough.
Top the filling with the remaining dough by creating dabs of dough (or little pancakes of dough). Once again it will help if your fingers are wet.
Bake at 350 F for about 50 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
Cool and divide into bite-size pieces (about 40 or so). Enjoy it as much as we do!
