“This is TASTY. I think it was a copycat recipe, but I can't remember what restaurant. Olive Garden, maybe? The amounts are slightly different from the other ones I've seen, and there are no nuts (I'm allergic), so I posted anyway.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grease the bottom and sides of a 10" spring form pan. (I line the bottom with parchment paper.).
  2. Combine the margarine with the chocolate cookie crumbs. Press onto the bottom and sides of the pan. (I usually only press to the bottom.).
  3. Using an electric mixer on high speed, beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs and flour until smooth.
  4. Add vanilla and sour cream and mix just until blended.
  5. Pour 1/2 of the batter into prepared crust.
  6. Gently stir cookie dough balls and chocolate chips into remaining batter. (I usually set the balls in there and then pour the batter on.).
  7. Pour into pan.
  8. Bake in 325 degree oven for 1 hour.
  9. Turn off the oven and prop the door open several inches. Allow cake to remain in the oven 30 minutes.
  10. Refrigerate cheesecake until ready to serve.
