{Recipe} Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Sandwich

Do I even have to try and sell this dessert?  If you're going to make these, beware, they are ADDICTING.  I ate one and the rest I stuffed in my co-workers faces. These were WAY to dangerous to leave in the house. Creamy on the inside and chocolate-ly chewy on the outside. I don't even want to say anything more besides MAKE THESE.  I found this recipe at a fun new blog, Heat Oven to 350 . I will definitely be making these again!  

Makes: aprox 20 bars
Cook time according to Heat Oven: 65 mins
Cook time according to Rachel: 70 mins plus 1 hour fridge time
How difficult was this for Rachel? Not too hard, just a lot of steps!

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup butter flavored vegetable shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar, divided
2.5 tsp vanilla extract, divided
3/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp cider vinegar
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 8oz pkg cream cheese, softened
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, shortening, brown sugar, 2 tsp vanilla,  1/2 cup granulated sugar, salt & cider vinegar 
Beat in 1 egg, baking soda & flour. 
Stir in chocolate chips & set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, cream the cream cheese w/ remaining sugar until thoroughly combined.
Beat in egg & remaining vanilla

In a 9x13 greased pan, spread 1/2 of the cookie dough evenly across the bottom. 
It is a bit tricky, seemed best to add dollops of cookie dough throughout the pan & then spread all the dollops together
Then add the cream cheese mixture on top of the cookie dough
With the remaining cookie dough, flatten chunks of dough between your hands into discs & then place them on top of the cream cheese layer. 
Heat Oven said the discs didn't have to touch but just be near each other, but...
THEY LIED. But honestly, I kind of don't care that the top layer wasn't a solid cookie.
Bake for 35-45 mins or until the top is brown & cooked through.
Fridge for 1 hour, then slice & serve!
