"Easy to put together and the end result is very rich. Next time I'm going to try it with an entire package of cream cheese (8 oz.) rather than the 2 oz. called for in the recipe."
"Sorry but this did not work for me. I am a bit confused as some of the reviews state that they used 8 ounces instead of the 2 ounces of cream cheese that the recipe calls for. The recipe calls for two 8 ounces of cream cheese which is what I used and I think was the problem as the middle never got done. I followed the recipe exactly as written and I cooked it for an hour. The sides were really dark and the middle was all runny and not done. I think there may be a mistake in the recipe. Sorry for the poor rating but this did not turn out at all for me and I had to throw it away."
"These are terrific!"
"it doesn't get any easier than this! i got compliments from all ages-thanks!"
"The best to bring to a party!"
"Very simple and very good! I made these for a family gathering, a few wanted the recipe. I used the 1/3 less fat cream cheese and egg beaters, turned out just fine! Thanks for sharing!"
"What a great, quick and easy recipe!!! I took these to a work event and everyone LOVED them. I used the tubed cookies for the bottom and the precut ones for the top. I think next time I would use the tubed cookies for both, the precut ones didn't really give good coverage."
"I've been making these since I was 10 or so and have a serious love affair going with them. I have discovered that adding an extra egg to the cream cheese mixuture makes these slightly less dense and I have also started using just one roll of dough for the bottom layers and the "already pre-cut" cookies for the top. I have also changed it up from time to time and used different types of dough. Oatmeal raisin is really good if you sprinkle some cinnamon and nuts in the filling batter. THANKS SHEZASHARK for posting this wonderful recipe!!!"
"Mark and others, I have been making this for years and do indeed use an 8oz. package of cream cheese. I tried it one day and have done it ever since! Never has anyone said they couldn't eat them ;) A keeper that everyone should have in their repetoire especially when you need to make something and time is short. Thanks shez!"
"These cookie bars are just too rich for us. I could barely eat even one. I ended up wrapping them up and bringing them to work to set in the break room for my co-workers to eat. Everyone says they like them, but that they are just sooo rich it's hard to eat them."
"I've been making this crowd pleaser for a while. I was going to post it myself, but I'm glad that someone beat me to it, as everyone should know this recipe by heart! Every time I make it I get asked for the recipe - that that is the only consequence that this recipe holds. TRY IT!"
