Ingredients
Crust
  • 20 Oreo cookies (regular)
  • 5 Tbsp butter, melted

Filling
  • 24 oz. (675g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (240g) sour cream or plain full-fat yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 18 Oreo cookies, crumbled
  • Whipped cream, for topping (optional)

Instructions
  1. For the crust: Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). 
  2. Place a 9-inch springform in the center of a large sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil (about 18 by 18-inches). Carefully wrap foil around sides of cheesecake pan*, spray inside with non-stick spray.
  3. In a food processor or blender, pulse 20 Oreos to fine crumbs. In a medium mixing bowl stir together the Oreo crumbs and melted butter until well combined. 
  4. Press mixture into an even layer in bottom of prepared springform pan. Bake in preheated oven 9 - 10 minutes then allow to cool as you prepare the filling.
  5. For the filling: In a mixing bowl, using a hand-held electric mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth and creamy.
  6. Add in the sour cream or yogurt and the vanilla and mix well. Add eggs one at a time and mix on low speed just until combined. 
  7. Gently fold in 13 crumbled Oreo cookies. Do not over-mix. Pour the filling into the cooled crust.
