Cookie Crusted Cheesecake Bars are quite possibly the easiest and most delicious morsels you'll ever make! If you love cheesecake and cookie dough, this is the recipe for you. This is a super easy dessert recipe that is perfect for an Easter potluck. This recipe only takes a quick half hour from start to finish, which those in a hurry will definitely appreciate. Grab an iced cold glass of milk or even a warm and comforting cup of coffee and one of these bars. It's the perfect companion. 

Preparation Time30 min

Cooking Time30 min


  • 1 (16-ounce) package refrigerated caramel pecan chocolate chip cookie dough
  • 2 packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving overhang on all sides. Press half of the cookie dough evenly in bottom of a pan to form a crust.

  3. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, vanilla and sugar. Using a mixer at low speed, cream together until fluffy. Add in eggs, mixing until well combined.

  4. Carefully pour the cream cheese mixture over dough, spreading into an even layer. 

  5. Crumble remaining dough into small pieces and sprinkle over cream cheese mixture.

  6. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and firm to touch. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 30 minutes.

I agree. Please specify what size cream cheese to use.

Would like to make this but not sure what size cream cheese to use.

The only thing is the recipe doesn't specify what size packages of cream cheese. I am surprised, given the age of the recipe that it hasn't been clarified.

I have not tried these yet, they sound like they are delisiouse though,if i don't have a mixer, can i still make them, i sure would love to try them because i love cheesecake. , ,

Cookies and cheesecake! Really. You guys are darling for coming up with this recipe. I am anxious to try this recipe. When we have our cookie/bar recipe swap, this one is in the mix this holiday.

OMG! I have found another cheesecake recipe that I can not wait to try. This sounds so good and the recipe is my favorite, easy!

Everything about cheesecake makes me smile...and as much as I'd love to eat it every day, after a while it gets kinda boring eating it the same way every time. I love recipes like can switch up cookie dough and literally change it each time you make it. The fact that it's made into bars, makes it so much easier to transport and wrap up separately for snacking or lunches too.

This looks really good. The video shows nicely how incredibly simple this is to make. I know this would be an absolute hit if I were to bring a plate of these to any gathering. I'd like to give this a go with some other cookie dough flavors, since I think it would also be spectacular. I love versatile recipes like this.
