Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Bars
Let’s go ahead and combine two of my favorites today: chocolate chip cookies and cheesecake. With the help of refrigerated cookie dough, you have an incredibly easy and delicious dessert in no time at all.
Because I’m all about options, please feel free to use your favorite homemade chocolate chip cookie dough in place of the refrigerated dough. This also allows you to add nuts or other add-ins should you desire.
So let’s talk about these cookie bars. I’m kind of in love with cookie bars in general. They are so much easier to make than actual cookies! No scooping and batch baking – everything happens at once. These bars do need to cool to allow the cheesecake layer to set up, but boy are they worth the wait!
Y’all know how much I love easy recipes. With just 5 ingredients, these easy bars are definitely a winner in my book. The cheesecake layer is simple but oh-so creamy. Just cream cheese, sugar, an egg and some vanilla extract are all you need.
I’m not sure there are two things in my life that I love more than chocolate chip cookies and cheesecake… Straight up awesome.
Tips for Making Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Bars
- I made these cheesecake bars in a 9-inch square pan. You can use an 8-inch square pan if you want slightly thicker bars. Add 2 minutes to the baking time.
- Make sure to let these bars chill completely so they cut up cleanly. Clean your knife in between cuts as well.
- Use high quality refrigerated cookie dough for the best results.
