Chocolate chip cookies AND cheesecake?
This is one of those recipes that's a winner every time (except the last time I made them and overbaked them, but that's a different story). The original recipe comes from a former coworker who made them for almost every occasion. She moved to San Diego a few years ago (we miss ya Lisa!), but her cookie bar recipe is still a hit.
Lisa Bars (Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Bars )
2 rolls Pillsbury Cookie dough*
2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese
1 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Grease the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Slice one roll of cookie dough and spread on the bottom of the pan. In a bowl, mix softened cream cheese, sugar and eggs (use a hand mixer, and mix until there are no lumps). Pour over cookie dough layer. Take the second roll of cookie dough, slice and spread over the cheesecake layer. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Let the bars cool for at least 2 hours before cutting (I let them sit overnight in the fridge).
* I always use Pillsbury -- for some reason the other brands don't work as well.
