Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Recipe
A cheesecake mixture spread on a base of chocolate chip cookie dough and topped with pieces of cookie dough bakes up into this easy dessert.
If you love chocolate chip cookie dough straight out of the batter bowl or in ice cream, you'll love this next recipe! A small piece goes a long way! It's well worth the work!
My only complaint is why do people always put sizes of ingredients that don't exist in the real world in recipes? I double dog dare you to find ANY chocolate chip cookie dough in 18oz size! I bought a Nestle Toll House 36oz tub and divided it in half. Worked well. Used 1 pkg regular cream cheese and 1 pkg low fat and it turned out great. Also substituted 3/4 c. Stevia for the white sugar (hey, gotta do what ya gotta do)! This is definitely a keeper!!!
Saw this recipe and decided to try it out to get the cream cheese out of my fridge before it expired. Turns out I didn't have enough cream cheese, only half the amount, so I just halved the rest of the ingredients that involve the cheese. I then made the cookie portion from scratch (as I don't buy pre-made cookie dough). Nothing fancy, just the cookie recipe on the choc chip cookie bag. I was going to use the exact amount of cookie dough specified but changed my mind and just used it all. So, the recipe ended up with a lot more cookie dough than called for and half the amount of cream cheese...and it was great! Seriously, it would be hard to mess this up, so feel free to experiment all you want.
Easy and delicious! I used a 9 in spring form pan and increased the cheesecake portion by 1/2 to fill the pan better.
Awesome, easy and fun.
It was a big hit. Came out perfect and so easy to make.
Having just made this recipe, I've got several comments to make: First, technically this isn't a cheesecake. Rather these are cheesecake bars. That said, they're rather tasty and I'd make them again. Next, for the reviewer that claims this isn't a recipe, here's the definition of recipe from Merriam-Webster: a set of instructions for making something from various ingredients. Clearly, this satisfies that definition. If you're denigrating the recipe for using store-bought dough, then you're welcome to make your own dough. Finally, a suggestion: if like me you bought logs of dough in the refrigerated section, I'd let one of them sit out along-side the cream cheese. I think it would be a lot easier to form the crust that way. The other log, definitely keep chilled; rather than pinching off bits and pieces for the top, I just sliced the log into thin slices; it covered the top admirably.
So very simple to make. I made one minor change. I couldn't find 18 oz. rolls of cookie dough. Only 16 1/2 oz. So I had to use a little of the 2nd roll to spread in the bottom of the pan. But otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. I found that it took the entire cooking time. It was a big hit at my party and none was left at the end of the night and many people complimented me on how good it was. Will definitely make this again!
