I adore cookie dough. I’ve used it to stuff cookies, to frost brownies,and even inside these candies.



If you are a cookie dough freak like me you are going to go crazy over this cheesecake. It has actual cookie dough nuggets throughout the cheesecake. And I threw some on top (you know just for good measure).

Cookie Dough Cheesecake Tips:

  1. Bake cheesecake until it is just set. It is okay if the center is still a little jiggly. Don’t over bake or you’ll risk cracking your beautiful cake!
  2. Feel free to skip the chocolate ganache, or whipped cream this bad boy will hold up on its own just fine.


Cookie Dough Cheesecake Shopping Tips:

  1. Because the cheesecake is so rich, I suggest semi sweet chocolate chips. Dark chocolate would also be lovely.
  2. Pick up a prepared graham cracker crust to save yourself a step.
