Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookies

    I sorta made a tinnie tiny mistake of using an 8x11 baking dish so my cookies came out a little undone because they were so thick, but... I am big fan of undone cookies so Im not complaining haha. However, next time I will definitely do it the right way lol!

1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

    For the cheesecake layer:

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

    To make the cookies:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the salt, baking soda, and flour.
  4. Gradually add the flour mixture to the creamed butter. Mix until just combined.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. To make the cheesecake layer:
  7. Mix all ingredients together until well combined.
  8. To assemble:
  9. Line a 9x13 baking sheet with parchment paper. Press half of the cookie dough in the bottom of the baking sheet.
  10. Pour on the cheesecake layer and spread evenly.
  11. Place the remaining dough over the top of the cheesecake. It's easiest to take small handfuls of dough and press them out in your hand before placing them on the cheesecake layer. The cookie dough doesn't have to cover the cheesecake layer completely, but should come close.
  12. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Cool completely before serving and store in the refrigerator.
