-1 pkg. OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
-1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
-3 pkg. (8oz. each) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
-3/4 cup sugar
-1 cup Sour Cream (I use Breakstone’s or Knudsen)
-1 tsp. vanilla extract
-Use a 9 inch non-stick pan
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Crush 30 of the cookies. Coarsely chop the remaining 15 cookies and set aside. Mix crushed cookies with butter. Press firmly onto bottom and 2 inches up side of pan and set aside. Beat the cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl. Add the sour cream and vanilla. Mix well. Add eggs (1 at a time) mixing well until blended. Gently stir in chopped cookies. Spread into prepared crust. Bake 55 minutes to 1 hour or until set. (If necessary: to prevent from over browning, tent with foil during the last 15-20 minutes of baking time.) Cool completely on wire rack and then refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
