Layers of creamy tart cheesecake and soft chewy cookies make these Key Lime Cheesecake Cookie Bars a delicious dessert recipe to make and share.
These Key Lime Cheesecake Cookie Bars are some of my favorites to make. For some reason though I haven't made them in forever.
A few weeks ago I was wanting to make my hubby a yummy treat for us to enjoy after the kids went to bed.
He loves cheesecake, and I love chocolate chip cookies. These cookie bars are the perfect mashup of recipes for us!!!
I made and posted these Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars a few years ago.
But this time I wanted to jazz them up. Enter in the key lime and sprinkles...and home made chocolate chip cookie dough!!!
My husband LOVES key lime pie so, it was kind of a no brainer to try adding it into this bar.
And sprinkles make everything just that much more fun!!!
Just made them. Turned out mostly like the picture, so that is great.
* I would just use the cookie as a base and not add the topping. We found there was too much cookie. I didn't even use all the dough as I made cookies on the side with it because there was so much.
* I would like to try it with a spring-form pan in the future, again making it more like a cheesecake than a square.
* adding sprinkles to cookie dough will be a new staple in my family.
If these are made without the chocolate chips should anything be added in their place?
You could totally leave them out and the bars will be fine. But white chocolate chips would be a good option if you wanted something in it. I hope you enjoy the cookie bars!
Just made these! My boyfriend's three favorite desserts are cheesecake, chocolate chip cookies and key lime pie! And his birthday just so happens to be tomorrow 🙂 However, the cheesecake layer turned out REALLY thick--practically overflowing over the pan! I followed the recipe exactly, not sure what happened! I may have to remake them using only half of the cheesecake layer recipe. Everything tasted delicious separately though, can't wait to try them all together!
Something doesn't sound right...there is only 1 package of cream cheese for the cheesecake, so it shouldn't be flowing out of the pan. I have made these many times in the 8 inch pan without them overflowing. Go ahead and let it cool all the way before making them again. Keep me posted though!!!
I used 1 8 oz package of cream cheese! I don't know what went wrong. You used an 8x8 inch pan, right? I have them in the fridge now, hoping they deflate! I will keep you posted 🙂
Yes, I used an 8x8 pan for these ones. That will make them pretty thick with the cookie and cheesecake. I think once they chill completely they will taste fine! Another way you can get thinner bars is by using a 9x13 pan and only baking 25-30 minutes. I have done that for other ones that I have posted.
After I let them sit in the fridge, they set well! I think I went wrong somewhere because they are thicker than they are in your picture, but still delicious 🙂 Thanks so much for the recipe!
what temperature do you cook these on.. its not mentioned.. thanks
I am sorry about that. It should be 350*. I went ahead and fixed the recipe.
