Calories 350 kcal


  • 20 Crème Filled Chocolate Cookies
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1 ½ 8- oz packages cream cheese room temperature
  • cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup sour cream room temperature
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream*
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • ¼ cup seedless berry preserves


  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • In a food processor, process cookies until sand-like consistency. Add melted butter and blend until well combined. Press crushed cookies into a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Bake 10 minutes. Remove tart shell from oven and let it cool while you make the filling.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 325° F.
  • Beat cream cheese on medium speed in the bowl of a stand mixer (you can also use a hand-held mixer) until light a fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Add the sugar and beat for another 3 minutes.
  • Add flour, sour cream, and vanilla and beat 2 more minutes. Finally add the heavy cream and egg and beat until ingredients are well combined and batter is light, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Pour batter into the prepared tart pan.
  • In a small bowl, mix the berry preserved until smooth. Carefully place drops of the preserves over the batter. With a toothpick or wooden skewer, gently swirl the preserves to create a marble effect. For a heart look, pass the toothpick through the center of each drop.
  • Bake cheesecake for 18-24 minutes. Keep an eye on it so the top doesn't brown too much.
  • Remove from oven and let the cheesecake cool completely before placing it in the refrigerator.
  • Chill for at least 4 hours. Once your cheesecake has cooled and set, remove from tart pan (leave the bottom on) and serve!
