I recently shared this over at Mom's Test Kitchen. I'm reposting it here for anyone who missed it.
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars
Yield: 16 servings
1 tube (18 oz.) refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough (or 2 cups of homemade cookie dough)
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
½ cup sugar
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut the cookie dough in half. To make the crust, press half of the dough into the bottom of a greased 8-inch square baking pan. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and egg until the mixture is smooth. Spread over the crust. Crumble the remaining cookie dough over the top. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center tests clean. Cool completely on a wire rack. Refrigerate any leftovers.
It doesn't get much easier or better than that!
