I made this for a party, and it was a huge hit! It was absolutely delicious. My friends were delighted that two of their favorite flavors, cheesecake and cookie dough, were together in one dessert! I actually forgot to put the mini chocolate chips on top, but I don't think anyone minded. It disappeared quickly and I received many compliments and requests for the recipe. And I thought it was relatively easy to make, since it uses store-bought cookie dough. Thanks, Erin, for sharing this recipe. :-)

Everyone loved this cheesecake! I made it as directed without any changes (although I did put a pan of water in the oven below the cheesecake). I will make it again and it will probably be soon. I was thinking that the next time I make it, I'll pour some of the batter in, drop some cookie dough pieces and then repeat the process. I thought that this would make for a more even placement of the cookie dough if I could see where the pieces would be ending up. Thank you so much for posting this recipe!

Wow this was a great cake for a lover of chesecake & cookie dough. Thought there was too much dough so only used half but it all sank - should of used it all. I used AnnNH cookie dough. Will definitelly make again!

Excellent recipe! I made this for my sister's birthday as cheesecake is her favourite. Even the kids who don't like cheesecake loved it. I also substituted light cream cheese and sour cream for regular and it didn't seem to hurt the flavour so it was practically a diet dessert ...(just kidding on the diet part -- we're still in the land of mega calories but so worth it!)

Although it was tasty, it was cracked all over the top. I believe this was because the instructions didn't call for a water bath as is usual for cheesecakes. Next time I'll try it the usual way and see what happens.

A whole package of cookie dough seemed to be too much, but it wasn't once the cake was cooked... next time I won't hesitate!

My first cheescake! And it was great! It's really really rich though, so I'll have to eat small little pieces, but it turned out perfect. Cooked for 50 minutes; no cracking.

This was a hit!! I found that the cookie dough would crumble as I tried to chop it so I just rolled it a little with my fingers! It seems like a lot of cookie dough for one cake but it turns out perfect!

Very good and easy, I couldn't find "chocolate wafer cookie crumbs" so I used chocolate graham cracker crumbs, turned out okay crust. I would suggest though to freeze the cookie dough for a few minutes before adding so they keep chunky a little?
