Cookies & Cream Cheesecake

For Father's Day we went around to my parents house for dinner.  Mum made the most delicious roti & curry and I was in charge of dessert.  Cheesecake is one of dad's favourite desserts so it wasn't had to decided what to make.  I have made this cheesecake once before and shared it on my old blog but it is that good I had to share it again.
