Ingredients

FOR THE CRUST:

  • 2 boxes of Enjoy Life Foods soft-baked snickerdoodle cookies via Vitacost (12 oz total)
  • 6 tbsp dairy-free butter, melted
  • ¼ cup cane sugar

FOR THE CHEESECAKE FILLING:

  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup cane sugar
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

FOR THE TOPPINGS:

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • ¼ cup cane sugar
  • 3 bags of mini Enjoy Life Foods soft-baked snickerdoodle cookies or 23 mini cookies via Vitacost

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I used a 9 inch springform pan, and sprayed it with nonstick baking spray. 
  2. Turn the snickerdoodle cookies into crumbs. 
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the snickerdoodle cookie crumbs, sugar, and butter. 
  4. Lightly press the snickerdoodle cookie crumb mixture into pan so the bottom and sides are completely covered. 
  5. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, and sugar, and mix well. 
  6. Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the bowl, and mix well.
  7. Place pan on baking sheet. This protects the bottom of the crust from burning, and makes it easier to move the pan in and out of the oven.
  8. Spoon cream cheese mixture on top of snickerdoodle cookie crust. Smooth the mixture well so it completely covers the crust. 
  9. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden and the center no longer wobbles.
  10. Remove snickerdoodle cheesecake from oven. Let cake completely cool. Cover cake, and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.
  11. Release latch from springform pan so sides release. If you're using a regular pan then run a sharp knife around the edges of the cake.
  12. Combine cinnamon and cane sugar to make cinnamon sugar. Garnish cake with cinnamon sugar and mini snickerdoodle cookies.  
  13. To easily cut the snickerdoodle cheesecake, heat a knife under hot water for a minute and then wipe knife dry. Cut into the cake, and wipe knife clean after each cut.
