I really like oatmeal raisin cookies but it just did not work me as the base for the cheese cake. The cheese cake also seemed to lack flavor. I followed the recipe but I left the nuts out which should not have affected the flavor of the cheese cake or the base.

This is a fantastic recipe! My husband's co-workers are always asking for it. You can also adapt the recipe by topping the base and cheese with pie filling (Cherry, Blueberry).

Crust was very over cooked (do you really cook it for 13 - 17 minutes first and then cook again with the toppings for another 35 - 45 minutes?). Cheesecake was pasty and blah.

With this recipe, I used my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe made with Pillsbury flour, and added chocolate chips instead of raisins, and used it for both top and crust, not so much on the top. Then the last 20 minutes of baking I drizzled a 1/2 a bag of melted caramels (melted with a little evaporated milk) all over the top. It was scrumptious! I plan to try seedless raspberry jam sometime.

Used as directed however added cranraisins to the crust and the topping instead of regular raisins and deleted the cinnamon chips all together added extra oatmeal to topping and less brown sugar. Next time I will try with different crust chocolate chocolate chip and chocolate cheesecake w/mint. Love the idea of using the cookie dough as crust so much easier.

I was unhappy with the final product myself. The cheesecake had no flavor and the topping was too thick and overpowering.

This was wonderful! I did have to make a few tiny changes, but it doesn't affect the overall effect. I used a cinnamon graham cracker crumb crust, toasted pecans but put them in the topping only. We love cheesecake, oatmeal raisin cookies, and we put raisins and cinnamon in our morning oatmeal, so this will be a favorite.

It's very expensive to make with all the pecans required. I felt there was an overkill of raisins with the cookie crust and in the topping. If you like raisins and oatmeal, you will like this. I am planning on using a sugar cookie crust the next time I make it and mini chocolate chips instead of cinnamon chips. I also will toast my pecans.

I omitted the pecans (nut allergy) and cinnamon chips (preference) and the resulting cheesecake was still delicious. It traveled to work with my husband and by breaktime was gone! Two people caught him on his way to collect my pan with a request for the recipe. *grin* A nice change from traditional graham crust --- and oatmeal raisin cookies are my husband's favorite!
