Description

Chewy Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie is filled with Creamy Dreamy Cheesecake, the hardest part about these bars is waiting for these to cool! But they are so worth the wait! 


Scale

Ingredients

Cookie Dough

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Cookie Butter or Biscoff Spread (affiliate link)
  • 2 large eggs, at room temp.
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 heaping cup milk chocolate chips

Cheesecake Layer

  • 8 oz Cream Cheese, at room temp.
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temp.
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a 9X9 inch pan with foil and grease the pan thoroughly, set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat butter for 2 minutes, add in sugar and brown sugar and beat for 4 minutes. Add in cookie butter/biscoff spread (affiliate link) and beat until fully combined. Add in eggs one at a time then vanilla extract.
  3. Mix in baking soda, salt and flour until no flour steaks remain. Fold in chocolate chips. Press half of the dough into prepared pan.

Cheesecake Layer

  1. In a clean bowl of an electric mixer beat cream cheese for 3 minutes on high speed. Add in sugar beating for 2 minutes. Add in egg and vanilla extract and beat on high for 5 more minutes. Pour on top of cookie dough layer. Press remaining cookie dough on top of cheesecake layer. I like to flatten the dough into discs or squares to cover the cheesecake layer evenly.
  2. Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, the cookie dough should be golden brown. Let cool completely before slicing into bars.
