Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Bars (4 ingredients!)- YES!

Any time my local friend, Joanne, sends me a recipe, I know it's gonna be a winner!

DING! DING! DING! 

She did it again.  This simple recipe is two of my favorite flavors rolled into one. Chocolate chip cookie dough and cream cheese....GOTTA <3 it="">

Simple and simply delicious.  You can't go wrong making quick treats like this one.

I love that it makes an 8" square panfull. Just right for hubby and me...and the neighbors get a taste too.

So if you want to double this, use a 9" X 13" pan and everyone will love you for it! You'll have to bake it longer, so be sure to check it the last few minutes. 



CHOCOLATE CHIP CREAM CHEESE BARS 

1 tube (18 ozs) refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
1 pkg. (8 ozs) cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease bottom of 8" square pan.

Cut cookie dough in half.  To make the crust, press half the dough into the bottom of prepared pan. 

In large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and egg until smooth.  Spread evenly over crust.  Crumble remaining dough over the top. Bake 30 - 35 minutes until brown. 

Cool & serve.  Serves 16.
