Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake

Does your family like chocolate chip cookie dough?  Mine eat it raw.  I sometimes do not bake it all so I can make milk shakes with it like a cookie dough Blizzard.  I found this recipe and modified it to my liking because I love the Tollhouse recipe so much, I had to use it. I think you will love it. 

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars

12 cookies chocolate chip cookie crumbs 
6 tablespoons melted butter

2 tubs (8 oz. each) Pillsbury Crescent Dinner Rolls
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) whipped cream cheese
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar 

Cookies Dough (Nestle’s Tollhouse Cookie Recipe)
2 sticks of butter (1 cup), at room temperature
¾  cup brown sugar
¾  cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 ¼  cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 cups (12 oz.) Nestle’s Chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (Optional and you pick the nut)
1 cup melted chocolate chips for decorating top (optional).

Make cookie dough using the recipe on the back of the Nestle’s Chocolate chips.  Make 1 dozen cookies for the crusts.  Set the rest of the dough aside for the top of the bar.

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.  Line a square  9 x 13 inch pan with parchment paper or use a throw away aluminum pan. Lightly spray with cooking spray. For your crust, break up your dozen cookies you have baked and combine cookie crumbs and melted butter.  .

Press cookie mixture into bottom and up sides of prepared pan. Bake for 6 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Cream the cream cheese; add in sugar, egg and vanilla.  Cream until it is smooth. Spread cream cheese mixture over crust.  

Cookie dough topping
Take the remaining raw cookie dough and crumble the dough mixture over the cream cheese layer covering all of the cream cheese mixture.

Bake in your preheated 325 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Just until the edges of your crust start to turn golden. Let it cool completely before cutting.

For presentation you can drizzle melted chocolate chips across the top or if you are a nut lover, sprinkle some more nuts on top.  I melt the chips in a double boiler and put in a baggie.  Cut the tip off the baggie and drizzle back and forth.  Use about 1 cup of chips.

This is a  dessert that your family or friends will be asking you to make again and again. 

Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
