"This is my most requested dessert recipe," writes Teri Linquist of Gurnee, Illinois. "Everyone loves these yummy bars with their soft cream cheese filling...and the couldn't be easier."

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (18 ounces) refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

  1. Cut cookie dough in half. For crust, press half of the dough onto the bottom of a greased 8-in. square baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and egg until smooth. Spread over crust. Crumble remaining dough over top.
  3. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate leftovers.
Editor's Note: 2 cups of your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough can be substituted for the refrigerated dough.
