Do you love cheesecake like I do?! I love it, but I don’t like paying the high price for it at some of these fancy smancy restaurants. Here’s an easy way to get your cheesecake on, and impress your next dinner guests or give to your neighbor so your thighs still love you in the morning. Sorry neighbor. 🙂

Cookie Dough Cheesecake

cookie dough cheesecake

Ingredients For Crust:

Cookie dough, homemade or store bought (I used homemade)

Ingredients For Original Cheesecake:

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 packages 8 oz. each cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tabelspoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon rind, minced

Ingredients For Sour Cream Topping

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar 

Extra Toppings

  • 1/4 cup Walnuts, chopped
  •  1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, reserve 1/2 cup for melting
  • 1 teaspoon butter (to melt with chocolate chips)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a 9 inch spring form pan, press enough cookie dough on the bottom and up the sides of the pan, set aside.
  3. In a standing mixer, beat cream cheese, vanilla, sugars, lemon rind and lemon juice well. Next, beat in eggs, scrapping down sides if needed.
  4. Pour cheesecake batter into cookie dough lined spring form pan. Bake 45-50 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F. oven Or until toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool completely before topping with sour cream. Meanwhile let’s make the sour cream topping by beating together the sour cream and powdered sugar in your standing mixer.
  5.  Once cheesecake is cooled, pour sour cream mixture over cheesecake and frost. Top with 1/2 cup chips and chopped nuts. Melt remaining 1/2 cup semi sweet chips with 1 teaspoon butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Continue with five second intervals stirring until chips are melted. Pour melted chocolate in a sandwich sized ziploc bag and cut a small hole in the corner, drizzle all over the top of the cheesecake.  Place cheesecake in the refrigerator and refrigerate over night. Enjoy!

I posted this 4 years ago…. BUT my girls asked me to make dirt and worms the other day.  I thought I would share the idea again since it is such a fun EASY idea.  Hope you enjoy it too. dirts and worms.jpg

We have been enjoying the  warmer weather and working in the garden.  So last week I decided to make an outdoor themed treat for the kids.  I made Dirt and Worms in a cup and then hid them in the yard for the kids to find.  They LOVED it!

These could not be easier to make, just  whip up some chocolate pudding.  I just used the Jello Instant Pudding mix, pour it into the glass. Stick in your worms or other “gummy bugs” then top with some crushed Oreo’s.

You could do a treasure hunt and have the kids find them in the refrigerator,  but I just set them in the back yard then let my kids run around to find them.   Kids on the loose looking for sugar is always entertaining…lol.

It did not take them long to hunt them down, then gobble them up… it is a simple but fun activity perfect for a summer!
