I made this tonight in lieu of a birthday cake and everyone loved it! I had to bake my cheesecake layer for an extra ten minutes, though, and the only change I made was to use finely chopped strawberries instead of raspeberries, as they are not in season right now. Even with the chocolate glaze, the chocolate taste was not overpowering at all and the combination of salty-ish cookies and cheesecake and sweet/sour strawberries and bittersweet chocolate was amazing!
This was so good, and really easy. I took it over to a friends home for a dessert and everyone raved about it. I used frozen raspberries, and used them while still frozen in the pie crust, and cooked it fro 30 minutes. It was so yummy. I didnt use the chocolate glaze because I didnt want an overpowering taste of chocolate, and it was just perfect! Thanks!
