Cookie Crust:
2 1/4 c flour
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
2 sticks of butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs

Chocolate layer:
6 oz or half bag semi sweet chocolate chips
6 Tbsp butter
1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbsp flour

3 8 oz pkg cream cheese (softened)
3/4 c sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350°
To make crust: cream together sugars and butter. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. Add flour, salt and baking powder and stir until it is blended well. (This actually makes more than you need for the crust, I added chocolate chips to the remainder of the batter and it made 12 big cookies).
Using a large springform pan, spray bottom of pan with cooking spray. Press cookie dough into pan and and up past the bottom of tray. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Let cool completely.

Chocolate layer: In a microwave safe bowl, pour in chocolate chips add butter and melt in microwave. (30 second intervals, stirring until smooth ~ approx 1 1/2 minutes) Add sugar and stir until well blended. Add eggs and whisk together then add flour and mix well. Pour chocolate over cooled cookie crust and bake for 15 minutes at 300°

Cheesecake: Preheat oven to 425° Mix cream cheese and sugar together using a mixer on medium speed. Add eggs 1 at a time, mixing well after each egg. Add vanilla and lemon juice and mix. Pour cream cheese mixture over chocolate layer. Bake for 15 minutes and reduce heat to 250° and bake for another 30-35 minutes.

Take out of oven and let cool at room temperature for approx 30 minutes and then chill in refrigerator for 3-4 hours. You can drizzle chocolate or caramel sauce over the top for decoration.
