Yield: 12 - 16 pieces


  • 1-1/2 cups crushed (apprx. 18 cookies) chocolate sandwich cookies

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until center is almost set. Run knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

I garnished my cheesecake pieces with a dollop of whipped cream. Then I lightly shook cocoa powder and powdered sugar over cheesecake and plate.
