This cheesecake has transformed my perception of love.
I will only accept a person who complements me as well as this chewy, crispy cookie and delicate, sweet cheesecake. Someone who will treat me like chocolate ganache; it’s gold.
I have always thought it is weird that people use relationship-centric rhetoric to describe food. “They complement each other well, ” or “the flavors marry each other in such a great way.”
It’s food. We kill the bride and groom as soon as they enter our mouth. I have a weird brain.
Just pay attention to this cheesecake. It’s why you’re here anyways. 😉
Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake
- 1 roll of cookie dough, softened
- 8 table spoon sugar
- 1 egg, whisked
- 16 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 2/3 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 16 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
- Pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees.
- In a springform pan, gently press down cookie dough. Set aside.
- In a bowl, whisk together cream cheese and sugar
- Add egg and vanilla, combine until creamy mixture forms.
- Pour cream cheese mixture into springform pan.
- Bake cheesecake for 35-45 minutes (until the center bounces back/looks jiggly)
- Remove cheesecake and allow to cool at room temperature for 30-minutes.
- Move cake to fridge and cool for 4 hours or overnight.
- To make chocolate ganache, heat heavy cream until it simmers.
- Add chocolate chips and mix vigorously until smooth chocolate forms.
- Pour mixture over cheesecake and allow to set for 30 minutes.
- Decorate as desired and enjoy.
- You can use a homemade cookie dough.
- A completely cooked cheesecake will bounce back in the center and pull slightly away from the edge of the pan. Keep your eyes on it — or it may burn.
- Cool cheesecake completely; this takes time, but is necessary for flavors to mature.
- Strawberries are option, but they look pretty.
- This cheesecake should be refrigerated when not being consumed — and can last in the fridge for up to 7 days.
P.S. Happy Mother’s Day — to all kinds of mothers; strong moms, moms to-be, pet moms, plant moms, moms who never held their babies, moms to babies in the clouds. You matter, you make us who we are — loved. ❤
