Oreo Cheesecake

From: 100 Best Favorite Brand Name Recipes

Ingredients:
1 (20-oz) package Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies, divided
1/3 cup margarine or butter, melted
3 (8-oz) packages cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla



Preheat oven to 350. Finely roll 30 cookies; coarsely chop 20 cookies. Mix finely rolled cookie crumbs and margarine or butter in medium bowl. Press on bottom and 2 inches up side of 9-inch springform pan; set aside.


Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Blend in eggs, sour cream and vanilla, fold in chopped cookies. Spread mixture into prepared crust.


Bake at 350 for 60 minutes or until set.

Cool on wire rack at room temperature. Refrigerate at least 4 hours. Halve remaining cookies; remove side of pan. To serve, garnish with whipped cream and cookie halves.


What I did differently from the recipe:
I didn't use a springform pan. I used a 2" deep cake plate instead.

What I'll do differently next time:
Nothing.

Verdict:
Neutral. I didn't think this was that great, but I had three other people taste it and claim they liked it. I'm not a huge fan of Oreos so maybe that was the problem. It was still really easy to make and I like that.

Matt loves cheesecake, but he's very picky about homemade ones. This one got two thumbs up (from both of us, so I guess that's four thumbs). Thank you for sharing! Love you.
