Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake

K

So, with a little trial and error I've made my own alterations to it that in my opinion made it better.For those of you who do not like springform pans or making your own pie crust, the amount of filling this creates can fill 2 premade 9" pie crusts you find at the grocery store. I also add the flour in heaping 1/4 cup fulls to prevent it from being so sticky when trying to form small balls of dough. So, I would say 3/4 cup flour instead of 1/2 cup. All in all the cheesecake base is delicious and it's a hit whenever I serve it!
