Cookie Dough Cheesecake (Yes, it exists)

This has to be a figment of my imagination.Cookie dough and cheesecake, in the same place at once?


You'll Need:

 1 1/2 cups finely crushed chocolate wafer cookies
 1 cup white sugar
 1/4 cup melted butter
 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, diced
 2 cups sour cream
 3 eggs
 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
 1/4 cup butter
 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
 1/4 cup white sugar
 2 tablespoons water
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
 2 teaspoons white sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Mix the chocolate wafer cookie crumbs with 2 tablespoons of the white sugar, and the melted butter. Press firmly into the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of one 9 inch springform pan. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 8 minutes.
To Make Cookie Dough: In a bowl beat 1/4 cup butter or margarine with the brown sugar and 1/4 cup of the white sugar. Stir in the water and 1 teaspoon of the vanilla. Beat in the flour and the semisweet chocolate chips. Stir until combined.
To Make Cheesecake: In a food processor or with a mixer beat 1 cup of the white sugar, and all the cream cheese. Add 1 cup of the sour cream, the eggs, and 1 teaspoon of the vanilla. Mix well and pour into prepared crust.
Drop cookie dough in 2 tablespoon portions evenly over the top of the cake, pushing dough beneath the surface. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 40 minutes. Cake will jiggle slightly in center. Spread topping over hot cake. Let cake cool than chill in a refrigerator until cold, at least 4 hours.

Great idea for a treat on a hot summer day!

  1. Hi Sizza! Thanks for sharing this dream of a cake come true. I have just one question: You mention "Spread topping over hot cake". I can't find any ingredients nor directions for a topping that shall be spread. Could you clarify this a bit? I might have missed something - not being a native English speaker. :-)

    Thanks and have a great Sunday.
