COOKIES & CREAM CHEESECAKE BROWNIE BARS


I know, in the past I’ve knocked the so-called “America’s favorite cookie” and I still haven’t changed my mind about not liking them. I just can’t get over the memory of feeling like I was eating burnt cardboard with frosting in the center. Also, they aren’t exactly health food so I figure if it’s not something I’d enjoy eating, what’s the point?


Oreos, jojos, whatever they’re called, I’m personally just not a huge fan. Now, when you use them as an ingredient in something like, say, brownie cheesecake layer cookie bars!, it’s a whole different story. Yeah, that I can do, Yum! They don’t sell jojos in Chile, obviously, but my wonderful aunt brought me a box of them from the States to play with. I love knowing that they are made with all organic ingredients even if you won’t find me binging on them in a closet. Plus, this s a recipe idea that I’ve wanted to try for a while, so I had to use them.


Ingredients;
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks) plus 2 tablespoons
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 30 - 40 chocolate cream filled sandwich cookies (I used jojos)

Instructions;
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C) and grease a 13x9 inch glass pan. Cream butter and sugar together in the bowl of stand mixer fitted with beater. Scrape sides of bowl, then add eggs and mix until combined. Add vanilla, soda, and salt, and cocoa until mixed well, then add flour one cup at a time and beat after each addition.
  2. Scrape out mixer bowl into a medium bowl and save mixer bowl for making cheesecake layer. (Yay, for les dishes to wash) Divide dough in half and press one half into prepared pan. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until top starts to darken and looks somewhat dry; remove from oven and cool while you make cheesecake filling.
  3. Beat cream cheese in mixing bowl with whisk attachment until completely smooth and lump free, scrape bottom of bowl and mix longer to be sure it's all smooth. Add sugar and mix until creamed, then beat in egg. Add vanilla, cream, and salt; mix until combined.
  4. Lay Jojos (or oreos if you must) in a single layer on top of the cooled cookie layer. (You can leave a few small gaps in between any odd corners.) Pour filling over cookie layer and crumble remaining half of chocolate dough over top. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes until the center of bars is lightly browned on top. Remove and cool for about 30 minutes then place pan in fridge and chill for at least 3 hours before serving. Cut into squares and serve chilled.
