My Mother-in-Law's Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars
OK, so maybe she isn't my mother-in-law yet, and maybe this isn't originally her recipe, but my mother-in-law to be makes these crazy easy, crazy delicious Pillsbury cookie bars all the time and I thought I would share them with you in case you have 45 minutes and want to throw together a special treat for your family with minimal ingredients. The coconut is optional, but I'm a fan of shredded sweetened coconut so I kept it in the recipe.
1 roll of Pillsbury Chocolate Chips Cookie Dough
1 package cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup shredded coconut
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a 9x9 inch pan press half of the cookie dough evenly into the bottom of the pan. In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sugar, egg and coconut. Pour it onto the cookie dough and top with the rest of the cookie dough, crumbled up.
Bake the cookie bars for 35 minutes or so, allow to cool and then refrigerate for a couple of hours before cutting into squares.
What's your super easy, super decadent go-to dessert?
