Equipment

  • hand mixer

Ingredients
  

For The Blueberry Chocolate Chip Cookie Part:

  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • cooking spray

For The Cream Cheese Part:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions
 

  • Start by thawing the frozen blueberries and pre-heating the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the frozen blueberries in a sealable bag, and place that bag in some hot water until thawed. Line a 9 by 9 baking dish with parchment paper and spay with cooking spray.
  • Using a hand held mixer, cream the 8 tbsp of butter and 3/4 cup granulated sugar until smooth. Add the 1 tsp vanilla extract and 2 eggs, and continue to mix until well combined, about 20 seconds. Pour in the thawed blueberries and mix.
  • Add the flour, 1 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp of salt to the blueberry mixture and mix on medium speed until fully combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Press a little over half of the blue cookie batter into the parchment lined baking pan, reserving the other half.
  • Now make the cream cheese mixture. Using the cleaned hand held mixer, combine the softened cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 egg and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract until fully mixed. Pour this mixture over the top of the pressed cookie in the pan, and spread evenly over the top.
  • Now place the rest of the cookie mixture on top of the cream cheese layer. You have the option to make a design, or just place bits of the cookie mixture wherever you like.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. NOTE that the cheesecake will still be slightly 'jiggly', but that the cookie part should be fully cooked through.
  • Allow to rest at room temperature for at least 20 minutes before transfering to the counter and cutting into squares! Enjoy!

Notes
