Grain-Free + Naturally Sweetened
Three cheers for Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake! 🎉🎉🎉
This recipe has me back in love with Cheesecake. Believe it or not, long ago, it was one of my least favorite desserts. That and crème brûlée. (I know, what kind of person doesn’t like crème brûlée??!) Anyway, I think it was the idea of cheesecake that initially turned me off. When I was first presented with
the choice of it as a dessert option as a little kid, my mind immediately conjured up the image of Kraft cheese slices piled high + slathered with frosting. (Clearly I was a very literal thinker). Well, the mind is a powerful thing because from that moment on, every time I had a bite, the idea of sweetened processed cheese in cake form would overpower the reality—which was, of course, heaven on a plate.
It wasn’t until I met my husband, a die-hard cheesecake man, that I developed a better understanding and appreciation for the delicious dessert. And of course, once you start baking the cake yourself, you see all the yummy goodness going into it and that it is actually amazing.
This version is like a smooth + rich New York style cheesecake resting on a supersized chocolate chip cookie—it is insanely delicious, guaranteed to knock your socks off. And guaranteed not to crack too! If you follow the directions to a T, you’ll get the cheesecake of your dreams.
Enjoy the recipe + Happy Baking!😊
