Author Five Silver Spoons

Ingredients

  • Chocolate chip cookie dough:
  • 1 stick of butter softened
  • cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 t baking soda
  • ½ t salt I use sea salt from Trader Joe's
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • Cheesecake filling:
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ t vanilla

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cream the butter, sugars, and peanut butter until smooth and fluffy - on my KitchenAid Artisan mixer, the smooth and fluffiness happens quickly. I heart my mixer. :)
  3. Add the egg to the smooth mixture and mix until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda and salt until well mixed.
  5. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, making sure to fully mix after each flour addition.
  6. Once fully mixed, stir in the chocolate chips and oatmeal. You now have your dough layer.
  7. Cheesecake filling:
  8. Mix the cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla until well combined.
  9. Spread ⅔ of the dough on the bottom of a 9x9 pan. Pour the cheesecake mixture over the dough. Place the rest of the dough on top of the cheesecake filling. You can drop big dollops of the dough or spread the dough over the cheesecake filling.
  10. Place foil over the dish and cook in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove the foil and cook another 20 minutes or until the cheesecake filling has set and the top dough layer has browned.
