  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  7. Slice the second package of cookie dough into 1/2 inch slices.
  8. Place the slices evenly over the cream cheese mixture.
  9. You will be able to see the cream cheese mixture, the slices will not cover it completely.
  10. Bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven, cool completely and refrigerate until ready to use.
  12. Cut into 24 squares and serve!

recipe #136470 is just about the same as this except half size. It is really good and I make it all the time. I initially reviewed it but as yours is older recipe I certainly want to let you know this is great and your size probably is better as they are inhaled wherever I take them.

I was going to post this recipe myself but found it was already here! This is always a huge hit whenever I make it. I use the refridgerated cookie dough logs and just break it up on my pan and do the same for the top layer. The cheesecake peeks through but that's okay. So easy and soooo good! Thanks for posting Kelly M!
