I was in the mood for something cold and lip-smackingly sweet. Something I could sink my teeth into. Something to maintain my weight. So I made this treat with a few of my favorite things. Cheesecake. Chocolate. and these cookies. If you ever fly Delta, then you’ve probably had them before. They’re a crunchy, no-frills, sans chocolate type of cookie. So I thought they would be great to use for the cheesecake crust. Throw the cookies into a food processor and chop them up into beautiful golden brown cookie powder. About 1 1/2 cups worth. Then add 3 tablespoons of brown sugar. Don’t you love how packed brown sugar looks? To make the crust, mix the cookie crumbs and brown sugar together. Mix up the cheescake ingredients and pour it on the crust. Oh yeah! Then bake it at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes. And let it cool. And try not to eat it. Then whip up some chocolate ganache to pour on top. Oh yeah. Spread the chocolate evenly on top of the cheesecake and then refrigerate overnight.
