Radio personality Lisa G. writes about her relationship with cookies — and men — in her new memoir "Sex, Lies & Cookies." Here, she gives away the secret to her how-to-get-a-man chocolate chip cheesecake squares.
- 1-2 rolls of store-bought chocolate chip cookie dough (see note)
- 2 8-ounce packages of cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 8-10 ounces candy toppings (M&M’s, toffee bits, chocolate chips, etc.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Line a 9 x 13-inch pan with parchment paper so that it overhangs on the short ends of the pan — this way the bars will easily lift out after baking.Take slices of cookie dough (or crumble dough with hands) and press together on the bottom of the pan to make one smooth layer.Mix cream cheese and sugar. Add eggs, then vanilla. Pour mixture over the cookie crust and smooth with a spatula.Top with any candy topping you like. Note: Alternatively, you can use a second roll of cookie dough and place slices on top of the cream cheese mixture to form another cookie layer. Don’t worry about neatness, the rounds will bake together here, and looks aren’t important in this recipe. You have other things on your mind.Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool. Place in freezer until frozen, then remove from pan and slice into 16 bars or 32 bite-sized squares.
