  • 30 ounce package chocolate chip cookie dough
  • 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Slice package of cookie dough in half. Cut half of the roll into 8 slices and press out with hands to fill the bottom of a lightly greased 9 x 13 baking pan.
  • Mix cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla. Spread on top of cookie dough.
  • Slice remaining cookie dough and repeat to create top layer of cookie bars.
  • Bake in a 350°F oven until cookie dough is done about 30 - 35 minutes.


  • A 30-ounce family size roll of cookie dough can be split in half to fill a 9 x 13-inch pan, a smaller 16-ounce roll will work in an 8 x 8 square pan
  • We like to buy refrigerator cookie dough, but frozen dough can be used too
  • Be sure cream cheese is softened well before mixing up this recipe
  • Cookie dough is easier to press and shape when chilled compared to using room temperature dough
