4 cup cake flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/3 cups butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/3 cups brown sugar
3 tsp. vanilla
3 cups chocolate chipsFilling Ingredients:
1 cup softened cream cheese
½ cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350oF.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt for crust.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated.
Slowly mix in the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Press half of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan to form an even layer.
In a small bowl, combine filling ingredients and beat until blended. Spread filling over the cookie dough layer and level.
Crumble remaining crust dough over the filling layer. Refer to the photo below. (I rolled the dough into a small strand, similar to a chopstick and broke off pieces)
Bake for 40 minutes, or until cheesecake is set and cookie dough has browned.
Allow to cool completely and chill before slicing. Enjoy!
