Cheesecake Cookie Bars

A couple weeks ago, I shared a recipe with my readers for some easy chocolate chip cookies. Today I want to share a recipe that uses those cookies as a base and then kicks it up a notch. Are you ready to make some delicious Cheesecake Cookie Bars? Your neighbors are going to LOVE you when you bring them a plate of these this holiday season!
