Deluxe Chip Cheesecake Recipe

My husband and I love cheesecake. Once, when we were asked to make a dessert for a "traveling basket" for our church, we prepared this luscious layered treat. It looked so good, we couldn't bear to give it away. We ended up contributing another sweet treat instead!—Kari Gollup, Madison, Wisconsin

"I noticed when making the filling chocolate chips and butterscotch chips were melted butter not the white chips. Was that a typo or should they not be melted. Looks yummy"

"I've made this recipe more times than I could count. Yes, it IS labor intensive and requires a lot of bowls or dishwashing, but it's easy enough that anyone can do it and it has a pretty impressive presentation. Works very well as food gift items and any holiday meal also."
