Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Brownies Recipe @pinch

Bring a regular chocolate chip cookie bar to a whole new level of yumminess by adding a layer of cheesecake to the center. The perfect treat for any time of the year. The cookie layer is a tender cookie bar (almost like a brookie) and full of rich flavor. Creamy and rich, the cream cheese layer is the perfect mate to the cookie layer. These are rich and addictive. I received this recipe from a friend about 10 years ago. I think that the cookie dough recipe is from Crisco, but the cream cheese filling was added along the way. It is a great favorite in my family.
