I have been lusting after this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake over at Mel’s Kitchen Café ever since I discovered food blogs. No joke, I’ve had this recipe bookmarked for three years. Whenever a special holiday like my birthday or Mother’s Day would come around my husband would ask me if there was a special dessert I had in mind. I always gave him a few choices including this cheesecake but he always chose one of the other options. Instead he’s made this Strawberry Shortcake with Almond Glaze, this Chocolate Cake, and these Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. He’s not too shabby in the kitchen.
I think he went with the other choices because this has more steps than the usual recipe but honestly it came together so quickly. Yep. This year I decided to make this for myself for Mother’s Day. I’m sure we might end up with additional dessert as well but that’s just how we roll.
Cheesecakes can be a little intimidating and so frustrating when they don’t turn out. This came together beautifully. And did I mention it’s a cheesecake loaded with chunks of cookie dough throughout?
I used graham cracker crumbs for my crust since I didn’t have any Oreos or chocolate crumbs on hand. Feel free to use whatever you prefer. Spread half of the cheesecake batter in the pan.
