Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup coconut (optional)
1 pkg. (18 oz.) refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
Oven set at 350ºF .Cream the cream cheese, sugar and egg until smooth. Add the coconut if desired.
Remove 1/2 of the cookie dough from the wrapper and press into an ungreased 8-in. pan. Spread the cream cheese mixture on top. Crumble and drop the remaining dough on top of the cream cheese layer. Bake at 350ºF for 30 minutes. Chill before serving.
*Do not overbake these, I would check after 23-25 minutes just to be sure!
