Double Decker Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake

I’m not a cheesecake person.

I know, I know, some of your are gasping. I might even lose a few readers on this one. But I have to be honest, I’m just not a fan of cheesecake. 

Most people love cheesecake. I prefer non-cheese cake. Just the regular cake cake. I can go to town on a really moist, dense, and well-frosted cake. 

But I’ll pass on a cheesecake. 

Except for New York Cheesecake. You know, the regular white-ish traditional basic cheesecake with maybe a little drizzle of raspberry or strawberry over the top and a really perfectly delicious graham cracker type crust?

That cheesecake I can really dig into. But only one slice. 

I really don’t love pies either. Except for one kind. Apple pie. But even then I usually like to mix it up in a bowl, heat it up in the microwave and scoop vanilla ice cream on top, more like a crumble. So i’m not sure that it actually counts.

I just can’t get into the fillings of cheesecakes and pies. Cheesecake is too tangy for me, and the consistency of pies usually turn me off. 

The only part of a pie or cheesecake that I enjoy is the crust. Basically the non-cheesecake, non-pie part. So it still stands that I don’t like pie or cheesecake. 

Don’t hate me. We can’t all have the exact same taste. 

Even though I don’t like to eat cheesecakes and pies, I definitely have a deep appreciation for beautiful they can be. 

There is just something about a gorgeous cheesecake or pie that makes you want to taste just a little bit even if, like me, you are not a lover of these desserts. 

I’ve been in the mood to try one of these lately so I asked the Hubby, cheesecake or pie? He said cheesecake. 

So here it is. 

Of course, I did go for a double crust.

I told you, I like the crust part.

And this crust is easy-peasy. And delicious. 
I mean, it’s made with Keebler cookies. 

And this cheesecake is really really rich. 

I sort of think that all cheesecake is rich, but I’m pretty sure that this one is on the more-rich end of the cheesecake spectrum. 

Which, for cheesecake lovers I gather, is a very good thing. 

If you are really really pressed for time, you could leave out the chocolate swirl in the top layer. But I highly advise against it. 

It was everyone’s favorite part of this cheesecake. Well that and the double cookie crust. 

Those two elements really made this cheesecake. 

And by the way, it’s no bake.
