Reviews for Chocolate Sandwich Cookie Cheesecake
"This is really good! I made mine in a rectangular pan too, so I could cut them into bars to take to church, and it took longer than I expected for the center to set. In the long run, it was worth the wait!"
"This was delicious! Super easy too."
"this recipe was a hit with my family! im making it again for dinner with my sister and her husband tomorrow nite. a great recipe!"
"I haven't made this yet but plan to soon. Could you leave the cookies off the top to bake it and add them later?"
"I agree with other reviewers who have had problems with the cooking time on this recipe. After 70 minutes I took it out of the oven because the cookies on top were getting burnt, but the center still wasn't set. It firmed up in the fridge though. It is a good cake but supremely rich."
