Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
5 Tbsp butter, melted
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Cookie Dough:
5-6 Tbsp butter, room temp. (start with 5 T-if dough too crumbly, add the extra T. I needed the extra T. let me know if u do!)
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 T. sugar
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup flour
1 c. chocolate chips

Cheesecake Filling:
10 oz. cream cheese, room temp.
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg

Preheat oven to 325.

For the crust:
line 8x8 pan with nonstick foil. Let some extend over the sides.

Add graham crumbs to butter and stir until crumbs are moistened. Stir in the mini chocolate chips. Press crust mixture into bottom of pan. Bake for 6 minutes. Set aside to cool.

For cookie dough:
Using mixer, beat butter, brown sugar, sugar, salt, and vanilla at medium until smooth. On low, add flour. Mix just until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. Set aside.

For cheesecake:
Using mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add egg and vanilla. Beat to combine.

Pour cheesecake batter into the cooled crust. Scatter cookie dough all over the top like crumbs.

Bake about 30-35 minutes, or until set. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Place in the refrigerator to chill several hours before cutting. (I baked 35 minutes.)
