1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1/4C flour
8oz sour cream, room temperature
5 Double Stuf Oreo cookies (coarsely chopped for the batter)
remaining Double Stuf Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped for topping

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. for crust: Mix melted butter with Oreo crumbs and press in the bottom of a 9" spring form pan. (Press crumb mixture ~1.5inches up the sides of the pan if you wish).

  11. Pour cheesecake mixture into the springform pan, on top of the crust.
  12. Sprinkle coarsely chopped Oreos on top of cheesecake.
  13. Place pan on the top rack, in the middle, of the preheated oven.
  14. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  15. Turn off oven and open oven door slightly.
  16. Let cheesecake stay in the oven for 1 hour.
  17. Remove from the oven and let cool.
