Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars

Please bear with me.. for the next couple of weeks i will be taking pics of my bakes using instagram.. am sorry .. call me a sour grape but i am missing my camera big time .. da*n insurance!! grrr

We got home safely last Sunday.. on our way back home hubs took me to a bakery supply shop called Yummie in Bangi.. one an half hr later and RM400 poorer.. we quickly got back onto the highway only to find ourselves stuck in bad traffic.. it went all the way till JB checkpoint.. oh well.. u win some.. u loose some.. one good thing that came out of all that was hubs didnt get the chance to drive fast :op

So ok.. anyway last night out of the blue i felt like baking these cheesecake bars.. had bookmarked it a week ago and since then i hv been craving for it.. took out my cream cheese and after an hr or so.. hubs was already munching on it.. the aroma of this cheesecake is so so overwhelming that hubs managed to persuade me to slice it 10mins after its baked.. was it good?? oh my.. oh yah baby.. the slightly crunchy top of the warmish cookie dough was to die for! rich in taste and what cud be better then to hv the best of both worlds.. cookies and cheesecake... a perfect marriage made in heaven hehehe

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs i used digestive
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips

10 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Line an 8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper or foil allowing a little overhang and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

2. Mix the melted butter and graham cracker crumbs until thoroughly combined. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 6 minutes. Remove pan to a cooling rack. Do not turn your oven off.

3. While the crust is cooling, prepare the chocolate chip cookie dough. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt and vanilla until smooth and thoroughly combined, about 1 minute. Mix in the flour on low speed, and mix until just incorporated. Mix in the chocolate chips. Set aside.

4. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl with an electric mixer cream together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Mix in the egg and vanilla on low speed just until incorporated. Pour the cheesecake batter into the prepared crust. Using your hand to form clumps. Flatten the clumps of dough in your palms to flatten them out a bit. Distribute the cookie dough onto the top of the cheesecake batter. Be sure to use all of the dough. You will cover most of the cheesecake batter.

5. Bake for about 30 minutes, until the top feels dry and firm (the cookie dough) and the entire pan looks set if given a gentle shake. Move bars to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.

6. Lift the bars out by the overhang; slice into desired size and store in the refrigerator. Serve cold or at room temperature

Before I go... many thanks to all the wishes... will try to reply to all emails as soon as possible yah.. . Also, all ordered mac sheets have been sent out today!

Fatimah said…
Salam...this looks sooo yummilicious !! makna nya kena masuk list la...huhuhu.
Anyway, that graham cracker crumbs tu macam mana ek ? Or can it be replaced with digestive biscuit ke or anythg ?
This one is like 3 layers thing, kan ? - Fatimah
Rima said…
jgn mintak sembarangan.. nanti kasi angin lain baru tahu hahahaha.. ni cheesecake bars tak byk keranah.. sure menjadi one.. tinggal tompok tompok ajer hehehe
Rima said…

Bake it lah .. tak susah pun.. makan hangat hangat.. sodap.. makan sejuk sejuk also sedap.. nyaman gitu hehehe
Rima said…
gulp.. baru ku ngap tadi.. no quilty.. no guilty hahaha
Rima said…
i used digestive ajer.. instead of 1 1/2 cup of it i used 2 cups and added 7 tbsp of melted butter into it.. i like thicker crumbs

Once dah bake for 6mins u sejuk kan and start mixing ur cookie dough tu.. then u dump everything kat food processor and whisked it.. dah sebati and smooth baru tuang atas digestive .. rata kan and then gumpal gumpal and penyek cookie dough tu.. macam buat bagedil hahaha.. letak atas cheese layer and then bakar for half an hr.. siap sudah si cheesecake bar ni hehe
Rima said…
alamak ade terconfused sikit haha.. once dah settle itew cookie dough.. u start buat cheese filling dia.. dump everything kat food processor and whisked it sampai dia smooth...

Mama said…
hai kak rima...Mama long time no c u lahh...u dtg concorde mane?? if shah alam..rugi lah saye coz tak jumpe kak rima.....anyway..ur cookies looks theramblings.... bye kak rima..
ila said…
hi sis!!
tgk gambar product k.rima mmg apa pon nampak sedap.. tapi bila baca resepi rasa mcm pelik je cookie dough jadi kek.. unique dan harus dicuba :) anyway pegi yummie tak bgtau ye boleh gi jap nk tgk gelagat sonia tu..
Salam,... aisayman Rima u naik KL selalu time I turun balik kg Spore. Kalau gi Yummie tu ring-ring le sbb like other fellow bloggers atas tu kata they're within 20min radius. I'm too within that radius. Kalau tidak sure kita boleh laga2 pipi like kat Tott dulu. FYI, the mama apa tu punya carrot cake was really nice. Kalau u bilang (hehe) sedap sure sedap kan? Apasal? Tak percaya ka? betul le... evidence validated by the post on Sicilian Orange Cake which made me bake it again and again. But if lapis legit tu, surrender ler gua, tak mampu tunggu dan pecah telur banyak2. Have a good day ahead,.
Ribbon Clown said…
Kak Rima,

Like K Yani said, it's the art of seeing.. Camera is only a tool ;) I nak buat this cake kejap lagi, tunggu si Adam tido :P
Rima said…
no shah alam.. always KL concorde.. how hv u been? still baking?
Rima said…
alamak tak sangka ramai yg tinggal bangi hehe.. was there simply bec KG recommended it to me.. suka check out new place.. ok lah tempat tu but a little serak ajer
Rima said…
How hv u been dear?? what to do kan.. u kerap balik kampung tu yg setiap kali i gi KL u kat sg hehe

For some reason how come we tak laga laga pipi kat ToTTs lagi.. u still go there?
Rima said…
Adam sure dah tido and u sure dah ngap ini cheesecake bars.. i can teropong si mamat tauuuu :op
Dzah said…
Yumiie? I went there on sunday too kak... tghr camtu, rugi x terserempak ngn akak. Got my 1st silpat macaron there. weekend nnti baru nk guna...huhu
Fatimah said…
Rima, i have baked this baby last night. Hubby loves it...:-) He said he likes this better than congo bars.. Not too sweet, yeah..just nice. So, this morning dia sudah bawa satu bekas to his office...hehehe.
Tapi kan, the cookie dough tu mmg crispy ye ? Mine not so...i kena bake lama lg kot ? Some more, mine jadi a bit nipis pasai guna bigger tray....Actually, itu sumer alasan utk i bake lagi...thx for sharing - fatimah
