Reviews for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake
"Delicious recipe! My family loved it! Very creative to combine cookie dough with cheesecake."
"This cheesecake is awesome! It was one of my most-requested recipes when I baked at the coffee shop and still remains a favorite with my family and friends. Instead of sprinkling it with mini chocolate chips, I like to top it with a ganache."
"I made this for a friend's birthday and everyone loves it. I got so many compliments. :-) this one is a keeper in my book.The cheesecake was flavorful and the cookie dough with it is just the perfect combo, and one I haven't thought of before - genius!"
"This is an outstanding recipe. I used oreo cookies blended to make the crust and the result was very tasty. The cheesecake base could be used for other types of cheesecake also. Thanks TOH for a great recipe. I can see why it was award winning."
"I actually recall making this cheesecake back in 1999! I'd taken it to a chapel holiday function! It went over VERY WELL and FAST, too! I had prepared this recipe when it was featured in Taste of Home! This IS a wonderful combination of cheesecake/chocolate-chip cookie dough for anyone who enjoys BOTH! Thank you for this recipe! delowenstein"
"I make this for every holiday dinner. It is even great without the cookie dough add ins."
"So, with a little trial and error I've made my own alterations to it that in my opinion made it better.For those of you who do not like springform pans or making your own pie crust, the amount of filling this creates can fill 2 premade 9" pie crusts you find at the grocery store. I also add the flour in heaping 1/4 cup fulls to prevent it from being so sticky when trying to form small balls of dough. So, I would say 3/4 cup flour instead of 1/2 cup. All in all the cheesecake base is delicious and it's a hit whenever I serve it!"
"I made this for my son's army going away party. It was a hit for sure!!! Everyone raved about it! The recipe is so easy and I never imagined it could be so good!!! I can't wait to make it again!!!"
"I have made this delectable cheesecake many times..It is by far my favorite. .Very simple & oh so good!"
"I've been making this since it won the contest in 1999. I've tried many cheesecake recipes over the years, but my family keeps talking about this one and asks me to make it often. My hubby just asked if I'd make him one to share at work this week."
