I was so exhausted last night I fell asleep at 9 pm! So day 7 is sort of a day late! But worth it I promise. I really didn’t have the right pan for this cheesecake but who the heck doesn’t love some cheesecake. When I think about cookie dough cheesecake, I think about the mouth watering cheesecake factory, how delicious it is and also how it kinda gives me a stomachache because nothing is gf.
I lined my pie pan with gluten free pre-made cookie dough (from Winco). Then mixed three 8 oz. softened cream cheese and 1 cup sugar until fluffy. Followed by 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and 3 eggs-mixing throughly after each egg. Poured in the pie pan. I chose of course to use the optional extra cookie dough balls in the cheesecake. I dropped several 1 inch balls in the cheesecake. Thats always my favorite part in Cheesecake Factory’s cookie dough cheesecake! Gobs of cookie dough galore….mmmm…
But it didn’t exactly make post baking as delectable as before.
I popped the cheesecake in the oven for an hour at 350 degrees.
But hey I’m not perfect and this was my first cheesecake, so not too bad! It’s chilling overnight and hopefully I can get it to look closer like the picture haha!
*UPDATE*- The cheesecake was a smash hit! I brought it for my sister-in-law’s birthday party and everyone loved and raved about it! I will definitely make this again. No one could tell it was gluten free, and I feel like that is always a bonus, because the general consensus is people think GF is gross.
