Toll House Cheese Squares

This is a really quick dessert and is perfect for any get together. It's super easy because you use store bought cookie dough. I dare you to eat just one! Betcha can't!!!

2 rolls of chocolate chip cookie dough
2 8oz. pkg cream cheese
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tbs. lemon juice
2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Cut each roll of cookie dough into 18 pieces. Place 18 slices of dough making 3 rows of 6 in the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Mix remaining ingredients together with mixer. Pour batter over cookie dough slices. Top with remaining 18 slices, again making 3 rows of 6. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. It's best to check on them after 20 minutes. Make sure they're fully cooled before cutting into squares.

I usually like to press the bottom slices of cookie dough together to make one solid layer before pouring the cheese filling over it. I think it makes for a nicer square when you cut them.
You can use any other cookie dough instead of the chocolate chip. Try oatmeal raisin or peanut butter! You can also use your own homemade cookie dough, if you're so inclined. Just make two batches of cookie dough, use waxed paper to roll each batch into a log shape, and refrigerate until firm. Then slice as directed above! Delicious!
