Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

Edit: To find the other recipes shown in the bottom photo, please click on the RECIPE label at the end of the post. There are several pages of my recipe cards located there.

Happy Wednesday my friends! I have another yummo-dee-lish-ush recipe for you today. On the menu is Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars. My friends at Scrapbooks, Etc in Topeka served these one day in the shop and I immediately requested the recipe. They are super duper easy peasy to make. Bonus! Perfect, decadent bar cookies for all those upcoming graduation parties...or end of school teacher treats....or track meet snacks that make every kid wish you were his mother.......or butter up your husband so he takes you to a giant flea market this weekend kind of treats. I embellished my 4 x 6 recipe card with some of my favorite papers from October Afternoon and the Recipe Borders and Centers Set from JustRite. The stamp set is still on sale through April. And Cindy at StarLitStudio has some great October Afternoon papers. I'm not sure if the ones I used are available at her shop at this moment though. See the mini staple on my scalloped circle? It's from the Tiny Tim as I call it. The official name is the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher...but I call it the Tiny Tim for short. The rick rack die I used is from Papertrey Ink. The scripty font I use on my recipe cards is CK Becky. Thanks for thinking I could write that small and that neat...but alas I cannot.
Now check out this last detail I want to share with you today. I used Copic Sketch markers to highlight all the text on my recipe card. It was looking a little bland but I had run out of space to add embellishments. Viola, my trusty Copics to the rescue. I simply used the pointy tip to highlight my lines, just like you would when studying for a test. I love the subtle color it adds to my recipe card. Way cool. Love. Love. I think that would be a fantastic idea for scrapbook journaling too, don't ya think?

Here's the recipe for you to copy/paste/print. If you can't find the Pillsbury cookie dough in a tube, you can substitute probably 2-3 cups of homemade cookie dough.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

8 oz. cream cheese

1/2 c. sugar

1 egg

1 tube chocolate chip cookie dough

Spread half of cookie dough in bottom of greased 8 X 8 pan. Soften cream cheese & mix together with egg & sugar til smooth.Pour over cookie dough. Crumble remaining cookie dough on top.Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Can double recipe & bake in a 9 X 13 pan. Can also use regular size muffin tins, with cupcake liners (Still doubled the recipe). Press half of cookie dough in bottom of cupcake liners. Fill 2/3 full with cream cheese mixture & crumble remaining cookie dough on top. From Scrapbooks, Etc.

Ahhh, another fun recipe card to add to my recipe book. I got the recipe book a long time ago so I don't know the source. I'm sure a google search can help you out though if you're interested.

I love an easy recipe that is also yum-yummy. I've had fun making recipe cards and including them in cards that I make. Just a bonus treat when you open your card. Yours are really cute.

Two of my favorite things - cream cheese and chocolate chip cookies - in one! The card looks fantastic! I love the highlighting you did with the Copics.

I love your recipes! Could you sell your embellished recipes on Etsy? I'd love to have a book full of your beautiful creations.

I make a version of these all the time but make my own dough with mini-chips and chopped walnuts. SO yummy. It's all I can do not to eat the whole pan myself.

I was just at stamping bella this morning ( a scrap booking store 45 minutes into town) and came across some ladies that just love your blog too! We chatted up a storm about all your wonderful goodies you bake and create! Your ears had to be ringing! They were so happy you put your Lemom Muffin recipe up on your blog! Then I come home and you have another wonderful recipe...the ladies at the store will be so happy too! I just love the idea of your recipe booklet! Beautiful Michelle! Thanks millions for sharing all that you do!

Krissy said...

YUM! I always love your recipe cards, and have wondered how you store them. I love your book. Wouldn't that make a great bridal shower gift? I was thinking that everytime I make one card for myself, I could make one extra and put it in a book for a perfect gift whenever I need it.

Thanks for always sharing your beautiful creations! I am always inspired by your creativity!

You are simply the best!!

Okay, so you are turning me into a domestic goddess! Hubby thinks someone has stolen the real me and replaced me with you! I made the lemon muffins on Tuesday and the Cheesecake bars yesterday - both are delicious! I am in awe of all that you seem to be able to accomplish in a day. Your family is truly fortunate!

Janis said...

I love the idea of a recipe book, it's like a cherished scrapbook but with recipes! I think I will make this my next project! Maybe I will eat some Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars at the same time.

Trisha said...

Of course your recipes look so yummy, but I am LOVING your recipe book! I read your blog often and always appreciate the adorable recipe cards you make, but have yet to make any myself. Seeing them compiled into a book now makes me want to revamp all of my fav recipe cards and pile them into a book for myself and someday my girls. Love it! Thanks for sharing them, and for sharing that pic of your book that has got me super inspired!

Alicia said...

Just had to let you know I made these soon after you posted the recipe and they were SO good! Then, I made some yesterday for my church women's group and they went crazy over them! Thanks for the recipe!! I also made some recipe cards for my own collection but now I think maybe I should have made some extras! Everyone wants the recipe!
