Peanut Butter Cheesecake Cookie Bars!
Food & Drink
For the Cookie Dough:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup Hershey's baking melts
For the Cheesecake:
1 - 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
For the topping
1/4 cup peanut butter chips
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon shortening
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, shortening, and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla, and salt and cream again. Sift together the baking soda and flour. Slowly add to the butter mixture until incorporated. Stir in the peanut butter chips and baking melts by hand.
Press half the dough into the bottom of an 8x8 baking pan. Set aside.
In another bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until creamy. Add the peanut butter and beat until smooth. Add the egg and beat until mixed in. Pour the cheesecake top of the cookie dough in the pan.
Press small pieces of cookie dough onto the top of the cream cheese layer. Continue until all the dough has been used and the cheesecake has been covered. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Remove and let cool for one hour, and then refrigerate until completely chilled. Cut into 16 bars.
In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter chips and 1/2 teaspoon shortening. Heat for 30 seconds in the microwave. Stir until melted and smooth. Spoon into a plastic bag that has one corner cut off. Drizzle over bars. Repeat with chocolate chips. Keep refrigerated. Makes 16 bars.
