Cookie Exchange Recipe & Button for the exchange

Today’s recipe was shared by a friend of mine.  She made these at a get-to-gether at my house and I absolutely LOVED them and HAD to have the recipe.  They are so super simple to make, and they’re one of my family’s favorites.  She didn’t even give me the name of them, so I have no idea what they’re really called. 


1 family size roll of chocolate chip cookie dough (Or make your own)

16 oz cream cheese

1/3 cup sugar

1 tbsp vanilla

Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish and press half the dough onto the bottom of the pan.  Mix cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.  Spread over cookie dough.  Crumble remaining cookie dough over top.  Cover and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.  Uncover and bake 20 min or longer until golden brown.

Chill until firm and cut into squares*

*You can eat this right away, but I find that I like the texture of the cream cheese layer better after they have chilled.


Now, I created a button to share with you for the BLOGGY COOKIE EXCHANGE on MONDAY.  And you can see it at the top right of my blog.  But I have a small problem.  I have absolutely NO IDEA how to share the code in the sidebar.  But I’m gonna put it in this post anyway.  If anyone can tell me how to put it in my sidebar for you to copy/paste, I’d appreciate it!

Here’s the button:

And here’s the code:

<a href= target=”_blank”><img src=”” border=”0″ alt=”Photobucket”></a>


I hope that works.  I feel so stupid not knowing how to do this!  So, if you can figure it out, please share my button on your blog so that lots of people will participate in my “Mr. Linky” Bloggy Cookie Exchange on Monday.  I’m really excited about it.

 And, do you remember me mentioning a giveaway?  Well, if you add my button to your blog, you will receive 2 extra entries to win!  And if you’re wondering what you will win…check back tomorrow!!!  🙂  I think you’ll like it!!!
