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!
