Supplies

  • 2 Packs of Oreo Cookies
  • 4 Tablespoons Unsalted butter, melted
  • 24 Ounces Cream cheese, room temperature
  • ¾ Cups Granulated sugar
  • ¾ Cups Sour cream, at room temperature
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • ½ Teaspoons Salt
  • 3 Large eggs
  • 1 Tub of cool whip
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line a 13x9 inch pan with foil, letting two sides of the foil overhang on the pan

    Step 2

    Place 28 Oreos into a zip lock bag and smash them with a meat hammer until finely crushed and ground.

    Step 3

    Pour into a large bowl, add melted butter, and mix until all the crumbs are moist. Pour the crumbs into your pan and flatten with fingers. Bake for 10 minutes

    Step 4

    In another bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar with electric mixer on high until evenly mixed, about 2 minutes.

    Step 5

    Beat in sour cream, vanilla, and salt. Then after all of that is mixed completely, add in one egg at a time. At first it will start out more dense, then by the 2nd egg it will be more runny.

    Step 6

    Crush 8-12 Oreos, not all the way but in 4ths and 5ths, and mix into cheesecake filling.

    Step 7

    Pour the filling onto the cooled crust and bake for about 40 minutes, or until the edges are solid but the middle is a little jiggly when you shake the pan.

    Step 8

    Move pan to a cooling rack and let sit for 1 hour. Then cover the pan with foil and refrigerate for 3 hours At Least. You don't want to try to cut cheesecake that isn't cooled enough!

    Step 9

    To cut, take the cheesecake out of the pan by grabbing the ends of the foil and lifting it out. Cut into squares with a sharp knife, rinsing with hot water in between each cut.

    Step 10

    Top with cool whip...

    Step 11

    And you have Oreo cheesecake squares!
