My husband just does not eat many sweets and girls had plenty of Christmas goodies!
So, here is the recipe:
Taste Of Home's Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake !
12 ServingsPrep: 30 min.
Bake: 50 min. + chilling
1-1/2 cups cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs (about 16 cookies)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
4 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, melted and cooled
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 eggs, lightly beaten
20 chocolate cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies, coarsely chopped
In a small bowl, combine cookie crumbs and butter. Press onto the bottom of greased 9-in. springform pan. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in chocolate and vanilla. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Fold in half of chopped cookies. Pour over crust. Sprinkle with remaining cookies. Place pan on a baking sheet.
Bake at 325° for 50-60 minutes or until center is almost set and top appears dull. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight. Yield: 12 servings
Here is a picture of mine! Please ignore the candles! =)
I do not own a springfoam pan, so I used a round cake pan. I baked it in my woodcook stove! Yay!
It was fun (and yummy) to make, and pretty easy!
Okay, I give in! I will post a picture of me, since it was my birthday!
I look forward to having an excuse to make this cheesecake again! And I need to try out some more cheesecake recipes. Any suggestions?! =) Or excuses?! =)
