    TOO MUCH COOKIE! Oh my goodness, I felt like I didn't have any cheesecake with all that cookie crust. And I didn't even use all 40, was working on a leftover box and only had 28. Also baking times are OFF! Shaved at least 10 minutes on baking and then when I left it to sit in the oven with the door ajar it burned the back half of my cheesecakes! :( Really disappointed with all of that. However, the actual cheesecake flavor was pretty good though.
