Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Bars

  I don’t think that I have ever purchased a roll of cookie dough. Ever.  Guess I am an old fashioned girl. If I want cookies, I want homemade ones.  But when I found a random recipe using a roll of cookie dough, which just so happened to be on sale AND I had a coupon for….I knew I needed to try it.

  These come together so easily, it almost feels like you aren’t really baking!  And it only makes a 9×9, which means it doesn’t linger in your fridge days after you have got your fill of it.

Set cookie dough out to soften about 15 minutes ahead of time. Preheat oven to 350*.
In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and egg until smooth.
In an un-greased 9 inch square pan, press half of the cookie dough into the bottom of your pan. {flour your fingers if necessary}
Spread cream cheese mixture onto dough layer. Top with blobs of remaining cookie dough.

It’ll be hard to wait, but do it, they are so much better set up!
