This is a copycat recipe of the olive garden cheesecake. This is an adaptation of another recipe I found online somewhere lol... I don't remember where now.

Not too bad! I had to about double the butter in the crust to make it all stick and only could fit about 1/2 the recommended cookie dough. When I dropped the cookie dough in I made smaller pieces than what was called for, which seemed to work for me. It ended up pretty tasty : )
