Brownie Layer

  • cups (186g) all-purpose flour
  • cup (42g) Dutch-process cocoa
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups (400g) granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks or 170g) butter, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Cheesecake Layer

  • 2 blocks (8 ounces each) cream cheese, room temperature
  • ¾ cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Cookie Layer

  • ½ cup (1 stick, 113g) butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cups (150g) brown sugar, packed
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup (170g) semi-sweet chocolate morsels



  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare a 9x13-inch baking dish with non-stick spray or parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl add flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt. Whisk together ingredients until they are fully incorporated.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl using a hand-held mixer, beat the eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla until light and fluffy (2-3 minutes).
  • With the mixer off, add in the flour mixture. Turn mixer on low and mix until ingredients are well combined.
  • Pour brownies into a prepared baking dish and bake for 15 minutes, or until they are just starting to set. (They will not be cooked through.)
  • After the brownies have baked for 15 minutes, carefully remove them from the oven. Let them cool while preparing the next layers.


  • While the brownies are cooling, make cheesecake. In a large bowl, add cream cheese and sugar, beat with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy.
  • Add eggs and vanilla and continue to mix until well blended. Set aside.


  • Add butter, brown sugar, and vanilla to a large bowl. With a hand-held mixer, cream ingredients until they are lighter and fluffier. Add in eggs, mixing well after.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix on low until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.


  • Drizzle the cheesecake mixture over the brownie layer. Carefully spread it over the brownies, making sure to keep it on top of the brownies.
  • Drop teaspoonsful of cookie dough onto the cheesecake.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes, or until the cookie is golden brown and the cheesecake is set.
  • Allow the bars to come to room temperature before transferring them to the refrigerator to chill for 4 hours, up to overnight.
  • Store the bars, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
