Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

Oh how could I forget to post these??? Oh man! They are sooooo good! I got this recipe off of my stepmoms aunt at the 4th of July party and I just got around to making them. They are just so YUMALICIOUS!!

The Menu:
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

The Original Recipe:
I found this on Pillsbury.com per what she told me was in it. I didn't add the coconut; yuck! (atleast that is my opinion!)

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup coconut, if desired (I omitted)
2 cups Pillsbury® refrigerated chocolate chip cookies (from 5-lb 4-oz container)

1. Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and egg until smooth. Stir in coconut.
2. In ungreased 9- or 8-inch square pan, break up half of cookie dough. With floured fingers, press dough evenly in bottom of pan to form crust. Spread cream cheese mixture over dough. Crumble and sprinkle remaining half of dough over cream cheese mixture.
3. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch. Cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate at least 2 hours until chilled. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.
