Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Bars

By Christy

March Madness is in full swing and one thing that means is parties. What is better for a party than a crowd pleasing, impressive combination of chocolate chip cookies and cheesecake. Guests don't have to know it is semi homemade, cheap to whip together and easy to make. One of my BF's and I went to visit my sister and her family in Louisville and seriously we were in and out of the grocery store and had this ready to put in the oven 15 minutes later. Everyone raved about it and it was definitely the hit of Sarah's March Madness party!

Family size chocolate chip cookie dough
2 packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp of vanilla
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350. Taking half the cookie dough, spread it out over a 9x13 pan. Take your softened cream cheese and beat until smooth. Add the sugar, followed by the remaining ingredients. Pour cheesecake mixture over the cookie dough in the pan. Then crumble the remaining cookie dough over the top of the cheesecake mixture. It doesn't have to be perfect but as long as most of it is covered it rises and spreads nicely over the top. Bake until Cheesecake is set and the cookie dough is golden brown. (about 45 minutes)
