Here's a chocolate chip cheesecake recipe made famous by "Eli's Cheesecake" in Chicago.

Thanks to Meemo for her Chocolate Chip Cheesecake photo This chocolate chip cheesecake recipe is quickly becoming an old standby at my house. After years of making the same old, plain, sour cream cheesecake, I decided to become a bit bolder. I'm broadening my "cheesecake horizens", as it were.

Here's a chocolate chip cheesecake recipe made famous by "Eli's Cheesecake" in Chicago. People actually stand in line waiting to get into Eli's for a slice....so you know it's got to be good!

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake:

For the Crust

  • 1 package (8 1/2 ounces) chocolate wafers, crushed into fine crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
Mix cookie crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Press into a 9-inch springform pan. Refrigerate while making the batter.

The Batter

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ounces mini-chocolate chips
Beat the cream cheese and sugar together at medium speed. Add eggs and beat until smooth; mix in sour cream, vanilla and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.

Pour batter into crust and bake in preheated oven at 350°F for 45 minutes.

Turn off the oven and let the cheesecake rest for another hour.

Remove from oven, let cool and refrigerate.

Important Cheesecake Tips:

1) all your ingredients should be at room temperature!
2) combine everything on low or medium speed (do not overmix)!
3) running the tip of a sharp knife around the top edge right after baking, plus cooling to room temperature before refrigerating will keep the cake from cracking.
4) If you follow these tips I guarantee that they'll work!
