Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookie Bars

I’ve got a good one for you today! Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookie Bars! Not only are they incredibly EASY but they are unbelievably delicious!
It's funny how cookie bars have taken over my life. I mean, trust me, this girl LOVES her cookies but there's just something about bars that are so much fun! I think it might be that there's the opportunity to put something in the middle...or maybe the fact that everything gets baked at once (no endless batches of cookies!). Whatever it is - cookie bars are the BEST.
Particularly these. You guys. Four ingredients. And yep, I totally cheated. I started with refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough to make these bars an absolute breeze to make.
A quick cheesecake filling is whipped up with just cream cheese, sugar, and an egg (add a teaspoon of vanilla for even more awesome flavor!)
