1 packageCream Cheese8 ounces of regular room temperature (I softened mine in microwave and mixed in the sugar and egg so it poured easily over crust)
1/4 cupgranulated sugar
1/2 tsp.vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, oil and sugars. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Put half of the dough mix in the bottom of an ungreased 13x9 inch baking pan or casserole dish with half of the dough, forming a crust. Use your hands for this as if you were filling a pie plate with a homemade pie crust. Bake for 10 minutes.
While baking, beat the cream cheese, egg (or egg substitute), sugar (or no calorie sugar sweetener), and vanilla in a bowl until well blended. Take the crust out and spread the cream cheese mixture on the top being sure to cover the entire top. It will be ooey and gooey and may blend with the crust and this is OK :)
Take the other half of the cookie dough and crumble it on top of the cream cheese coating, being sure to cover it all bake for 35 minutes (mine took about 23, just keep checking) or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving. Store in the fridge, due to the cream cheese
Note: You can also use other cookie dough flavors instead of chocolate chip. Peanut butter, M & M, etc... (Original recipe used a package of chocolate chip mix, I used my recipe for the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies)Updated onOriginally Posted On: August 11, 2012
