Butter Cookie Cheesecake
A butter cookie cheesecake blends the sultry flavor of butter (always a smash hit) with the crunch of cookie all mixed into a tangy and creamy cheesecake recipe. This particular butter cookie cheesecake recipe is really a classic, except for the base. Arguably, the classic crust for cheesecake could be said to be the graham wafer crust that we see so often. On the other hand, since the cheese cake itself has roots that go back at least as far as Greece and the earliest of Olympic games (and a cheese cake, often also referred to as a honey cake was what the winner of the games received as the prize for his achievement), it is likely that the truly first and original cheese cake had no crust at all, or if it had, it was likely one made from flour, lard, and water. In any event, for our purposes, the graham wafer crust, at least today, is considered the quintessential crust for cheesecake. In this butter cookie cheesecake, a butter cookie crust replaces that contemporary classic, or known tradition, in any event.
So the base is a lovely and butter, slightly granular base for this cheesecake.
