Work catering #32: Fusion baking! Chocolate chip cookie + Cheesecake = Cheesecake chocolate chip cookie slice!

Here's a simple maths equation for you.
Chocolate chip cookies + Cheesecake = ????

It's simple! Cheesecake Chocolate chip cookie slice =D One of the best inventions ever ^___^" Fusion of two delicious sweets!!! The cheesecake layer is supposed to be sandwiched in between the two layers of chocolate chip cookie but I think my ratios were a bit odd.. Still delicious though :D

Cheesecake Chocolate chip cookie Slice

1 cup (225g) butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbs milk
3/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder
2 cups plain flour
1 cup chocolate chips

1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1. Preheat oven to 170oC. Grease and line 20x30cm baking tray with baking paper.

3. Beat in egg and milk.
4. Stir through the flour, salt and baking powder until just combined. Fold through chocolate chips.
5. Spread half of the batter into the base of prepared pan into a even layer. Refrigerate this layer and remaining dough until needed.
6. Beat cream cheese and caster sugar in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla essence until mixture is smooth.
7. Pour mixture over the top of cookie layer.
8. Make flat disks with remaining cookie dough with your hand and gently press on top of cheesecake batter. not all the batter must be and won't be covered but try your best ^^
9. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely to room temperature then refrigerate. Cut into squares and serve!
