This recipe is from my cousin Susan in Cape Girardeau Missouri. She is the food editor of the local paper and believe me, she knows a good recipe when she sees one. This is best made and served on the same day. The crust gets a little soggy if leftover.
Knead 3 Tbsp flour into the entire tube of cookie dough. Use a ziploc bag and let the kids mash the flour into the dough.
Press onto pizza pan or press into a 9X13 inch rectangle on a cookie sheet. Make a slight ridge around the outside edge. Bake at 350 about 15 minutes or until the whole cookie crust is brown. Cool completely.
Beat 8 oz. cream cheese (fat free cream cheese works, it is just a little runny) and 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla until fluffy. When crust is completely and I mean completely cool, spread the cream cheese over crust.
