TEMPT MY TUMMY TUESDAY

I have been behind in so many things....scroll down to read the previous post and you'll find out why.



So today, I'm back for this installment of Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. It's a fun blog carnival at "Lisa's place" in which a lot of folk come together and share kitchen stuff.

For my entry, I decided to do some

CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE CHEESECAKE

Did you hear me? I said,

CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE CHEESECAKE!!!





One picture is from the top (obviously) and the other is to show you how thick it is in the 9 x 13 inch pan.



ingredients:

crust:
3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1-1/2 cups mini-chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped pecans (I used the cookie pieces)

filling:
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda; add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips and pecans. Set aside a third of the dough for topping. Press remaining dough into a greased 13 X 9 X 2 in baking pan. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Spoon over crust. (The crust is still doughy at this point.) Drop teaspoonfuls of reserved dough over filling.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Cover and store in the refrigerator.
