How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Line 8X8" square pan with heavy-duty foil and spray with nonstick spray.
  • Crush 12 0z of the cookies in gallon ziplock or food processor until crumbly but not powdered.
  • Add butter and salt, mix to combine.
  • Press firmly into even layer into pan, bake for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
  • Meanwhile, make top layer--melt chocolate chips and butter in double boiler or microwave until smooth and no lumps remain.
  • Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Lower oven to 325.
  • Make filling: With hand-held mixer, blend filling ingredients til smooth and creamy.
  • Back to brownie layer--when chocolate has cooled a bit, blend sugar and egg with hand-held mixer or whisk til creamy and pale.
  • Slowly add melted chocolate mixture until well blended, then gently fold in flour mixture.
  • Assemble: When crust is done, spread cream cheese mixture carefully over top, making an even layer.
  • Pour brownie batter over top, trying not to disturb the cream cheese layer--you DO NOT wants swirls. (A small offset spatula works well for this.)
  • Crush or chop remaining cookies coarsely, sprinkle them over the top, and press in gently.
  • Bake for 60-75 minutes*, until toothpick comes out with just a few brownie crumbs and no visible cream cheese. Do not overbake.
  • Cool an hour at room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours before slicing. Store in fridge.
