Chewy Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie is filled with Creamy Dreamy Cheesecake, the hardest part about these bars is waiting for these to cool! But they are so worth the wait!

Who is ready for St. Paddy’s Day? I am making some more Guinness Chocolate cookies and some other Guinness & Baileys desserts for my co workers. I am also working like a mad woman!! We had the Guinness Girls in tonight and they are coming tomorrow as well then the 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey girls are coming in on Thursday and then it’s the weekend, full of tons of people celebrating all weekend long. Don’t get me wrong I love it but I can’t wait for next Tuesday. I will be sleeping in.

Do you have any crazy plans?

These cheesecake bars were fabulous, I have never made cheesecake cookie bars before and I am kicking myself for waiting so long. I of course had to incorporate Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter (or Biscoff Spread) because I just cannot get enough of the stuff! I was buying some at TJ’s the other day and the cashier tried telling me I would love Cookie Butter and try it on this and that- I just looked at him thinking poor guy doesn’t know I have a sick addiction and I could teach him a few things about eating Cookie Butter.

Anyways I loved these bars, I made sure to beat the cheesecake layer for a few minutes to really smooth batter. I will make these again in a heartbeat. Easily a new favorite!

Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars


    Cookie Dough
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Cookie Butter or Biscoff Spread
  • 2 large eggs, at room temp.
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 heaping cup milk chocolate chips
  • Cheesecake Layer
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese, at room temp.
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temp.
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a 9X9 inch pan with foil and grease the pan thoroughly, set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat butter for 2 minutes, add in sugar and brown sugar and beat for 4 minutes. Add in cookie butter/biscoff spread and beat until fully combined. Add in eggs one at a time then vanilla extract.
  3. Mix in baking soda, salt and flour until no flour steaks remain. Fold in chocolate chips. Press half of the dough into prepared pan.
  4. Cheesecake Layer
  5. In a clean bowl of an electric mixer beat cream cheese for 3 minutes on high speed. Add in sugar beating for 2 minutes. Add in egg and vanilla extract and beat on high for 5 more minutes. Pour on top of cookie dough layer. Press remaining cookie dough on top of cheesecake layer. I like to flatten the dough into discs or squares to cover the cheesecake layer evenly.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, the cookie dough should be golden brown. Let cool completely before slicing into bars.

      1. Thanks for that Elizabeth …. i’m in Australia and as far as i know have nothing that would be a good substitute. Will have to think about what i could use as a replacement as the recipe looks very yummy. Think i have seen the cookies around somewhere though 🙂

  1. Oh gosh, this has to happen, stat. I bought cream cheese to make cupcakes, decided to ditch that plan and planned on using it for cheesecake bars instead. But now it looks like I shall be making COOKIE BUTTER cheesecake bars. Genius plan!

  2. Hi! I tried to make these the other night but realized the cheesecake instructions were a bit mixed up – there’s no mention of salt in the ingredient list for cheesecake, but then it’s in the instructions. And vice versa for vanilla!

    I ended up ditching the cheesecake layer and using the base for something different but would love to try this again someday so please let me know how to handle the cheesecake!


    (and PS – my new creation is here

    1. Hi Felicia,

      So sorry about that for some reason in the instructions I mentioned to add the salt but it was meant to say to add the vanilla! Who knows what was going on in my mind when I wrote that. Sorry for the mix up!

      Take Care,


      1. Thanks Elizabeth! I wasn’t sure which way to err so I put both salt and vanilla in and thought it tasted too weird so I ditched it 🙂 Next time I’ll just do vanilla!
