New Recipe: Snickerdoodle Cheesecake

One of my many hobbies is clipping recipes out of newspapers and magazines.  SOMETIMES I actually TRY one of these recipes!  Here is a new one from Woman's Day or Family Circle, I don't remember which one.

My kids (and hubs) love snicker doodle cookies, so when I saw this recipe I knew it had potential.  The procedure was super-easy, especially if you use a food processor for the cookie crust.  I usually don't make cheesecakes…I like them OK, but they're not my favorite…but I am glad I tried this one because I think it might be a new family favorite!  This was a real winner!

the ingredients all lined up--all basic stuff I would normally
have in my pantry/fridge except the shortbread cookies
for the cookie crust (cookies don't last long in my pantry)
I liked this recipe b/c it wasn't fancy--it didn't require a
water bath or anything like that.
And here's the recipe for your enjoyment!


  1. haha I'm the exact same way about cutting recipes and sometimes actually cooking them (don't get started on pinterest, same thing!). I also feel the same way about cheesecake, I like it OK but it's not my favorite. I do like snickerdoodles though, so maybe I'll have to try this one?

  2. Oh THAT sounds delicious!!! You know? I never made a cheesecake before. I always assumed it would take way too much time and effort and things like water bath.

    1. You should try it! It really was "easy-peasy" as you say! ;o)
