I went to the grocery store over the weekend. They were having a sale. A really good sale. They had packages of Nestle Toll House cookie dough on sale, cheap. We picked up 2 packages of chocolate chip cookie dough. When we got to the check out, the cashier told us we had to purchase 5 to get the deal. OK, Tony went back to the cookie dough isle and they only had chocolate chip left. Sooooo, I have 5 packages of chocolate chip cookie dough sitting in my fridge. What do you make with chocolate chip cookie dough besides cookies?? You make cheesecake. Individual chocolate chip cookie dough crust cheesecakes. They were yummy. I topped them with whipping cream and a chocolate chip cookie. I bet they would be great with the cherry filling as the recipe stated.
