it looks good and taste good too!! Luv it
I made this torte about a couple years ago and loved it! That said, I highly recommend NOT using the icing in the recipe. Instead I used a recipe for whipped cream cream cheese icing and it was marvelous. I didn't use more than a package of cream cheese which I beat really well with the sugar than folded it in to the whipped cream.
This turned out great. I followed other recommendations for frosting, and only used 4 pkg crm cheese (still lots!), 1 tsp vanilla and icing sugar to taste (much more than 1/2 cup). To shape cookie circles, after trying to spread dough, I put it between parchment and wax papers (with the circle drawn on the bottom) and rolled it out with a rolling pin. Was way easier and faster, (some choc chips got a bit crushed, but not enough to look bad) Would definitely make again! Very rich -- serve small!
I made this for my brother-in-law's birthday since he likes cheesecake and chocolate chip cookies. After reading whitnmart's comment, I added an extra cup of confectioners sugar to the cream cheese filling; but it was still too rich/not sweet enough, it didn't go over very well. I'm undaunted I will try this again but i will try something different with the filling.
Sidenote: I personally really liked it. It says to serve at room temp but I liked it cold so the cream cheese is firm.
My husband made this for a men's cake bake. He won 2nd place grand prize with it.
Even though the cake looked AMAZING. I thought the frosting was terrible!! I looked up other cream cheese frosting recipes, after the fact, and found they all called for at least 2 cups of sugar. The cake basically was cookies with cream cheese. Yuck. If I'd do this again I would definitely use a different frosting recipe.
