So I finally did it. I made this recipe (that I got in my inbox about 6 months ago from allrecipes.com) and almost made it in time for my husband’s birthday. We ended up hosting a game night for our house church. What do 12 Peruvians, 4 Gringos, Uno Attack, and a killer cheesecake equal? A really awesome time. It was a lot of fun, and this cheesecake hit the spot at the end of a fun time together. I definitely recommend this one for anyone looking to please a crowd. I was able to slice it into 16 equal parts, and the portions weren’t huge, but just right in my opinion. Here is the link and some pictures to this recipe:
1. There are actual plops (I don’t know that that word sounds appetizing) of cookie dough all throughout the cheesecake. Absolute deliciousness!
2. The topping is poured on top of the cheesecake right after it is pulled from the oven. You really only need to bake a cheesecake until the outer circle is firm and the middle still jiggles. This topping made me think I hadn’t baked it long enough, but it ended up being fine. If you overbake a cheesecake it will crack (just sayin’ if you didn’t already know that).
3. Wah-lah! The beautiful finished product. Several commenters suggested using a different type of crust. I was a big fan of the oreo crust myself. I hope you can try this sometime!
