Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake

Our daughter first astounded us with her cooking talents when she made this cheesecake at 13 years of age. With a unique cookie crumb crust and extra-creamy filling, people think this dessert was made by a gourmet baker! —Kathleen Gualano, Cary, Illinois

    Reirph,Try lining the bottom of the springform pan with parchment paper cut to size...it will easily slide off the base onto serving tray.

    This is always a hit when I make it however it is always impossible to remove from the bottom of the springform pan to place on a serving dish. I make sure I grease the pan liberally but still always have this problem.
