Sinful 4 layer Cookie Bars

I discovered this dessert about a year ago, but I always forget to take pictures and there is nothing left of it by the time I remember.  This is super yummy!!  It is four cookies in one.  So if you ever can't decide what cookies to make, you can make this and cover all your basis.  It is a bit time consuming to make all the cookies, but it is well worth it!  Just a warning....this isn't for anyone on a diet or diabetics =)

These aren't too difficult to make.  If you want to cheat, you can use already prepared cookie dough, or iv you have a favorite cookie recipe, use that.  But I will give the recipes for my favorite doughs.

Preheat oven to 350.  Line a 9x13 dish with foil and pray with cooking spray. (you don't have to line with foil but it makes cleanup easier) layer sugar cookie, double chocolate chip, peanut butter, chocolate chip.  bake for 30 minutes.  Cover with foil and bake 15 more minutes. 

Sugar cookie
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter
4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 egg (or use egg white)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

cream sugar, butter, cream cheese.  add eggs and extracts.  stir in dry ingredients. Layer on bottom of the dish.  Move on to chocolate cookies.

Double chocolate chip cookies
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
3/8 c brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
7/8 c. flour
3/4 c. cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
chocolate chips

Cream sugars and butter.  Add eggs and extract.  stir in dry ingredients.  Spread over the sugar cookies layer.  I usually do blobs all over and then spread it together.

Peanut Butter cookie
1 c. peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg.

Mix all together and layer over chocolate layer.

Chocolate chip
 1/2 c. butter
3/8 c. sugar
3/8 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tbsp vanilla
1 1/4 c flour
1/2 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt
chocolate chips

Cream sugars and butter.  Add egg and vanilla. stir in dry ingredients.  Put over top.  Once you are done cooking as the directions above state, melt some chocolate chips and drizzle over.

This is a great treat to take to gatherings because it is pretty rich so one piece will go a long way.  I actually like how this tastes the next day.  It is still soft (if you keep it covered) and the flavors have a chance to settler and meld together.  Enjoy!!
