A blissful chocolate cheesecake with an Oreo cookie crust that is almost as easy to make as it will be to eat.

  • Servings: 12

Ingredients:

18 Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, finely crushed (about 1-½ cups
2 Tbsp Butter or Margarine, melted
3 pkg (8 Oz. Each) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
¾ cup Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 pkg (8 Squares) Baker's Semi-sweet Baking Chocolate, melted, cooled slightly
3 Eggs

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325F if using a silver 9-inch spring-form pan (or to 300F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch spring-form pan).

Mix crushed cookies and butter; press firmly onto bottom of pan.

Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add melted chocolate; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Pour over crust.

Bake 55 minutes to 1 hour or until center is almost set. Run knife or metal spatula around side of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing side of pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.
