  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 1/2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs
  • 16 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 pound refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
  • 2 ounces chocolate chips

The Topping

  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream whipped
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


The Crust

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Generously grease the bottom and sides of a 10" spring form pan. Combine the margarine with the chocolate cookie crumbs. Press onto the bottom and sides of the pan. 

The Filing

  • Using an electric mixer on high speed, combine cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and flour and mix until smooth. Add vanilla and sour cream and mix just until blended. Pour half of the batter into prepared crust. Cut cookie dough into golf ball-sized chunks and drop into batter. Sprinkle in chocolate chips. Pour over remaining batter. Bake for 60 minutes. Turn off the oven and open the door to the broil position.
  •  Allow cake to remain in the oven 30 more minutes. Refrigerate until ready to serve. To serve, remove the sides of the pan and top with fresh whipped cream. Sprinkle with additional chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.

    Just wanto to be sure I understood a couple things: the crust is not baked separately first? And after 60 minutes in the oven, open the oven, set it to broil (I can change the temp on my oven, what should I use?), and bake, with door open, for an additional 30 minutes. It’s that correct?
    I’m eager to make this!
