Oreo Cheesecake Bars


For Fathers Day I gave Jack sole deciding powers on dessert. The only stipulation was that it had to be something I could blog. I tried my hardest to get him to pick Strawberry Cream Puff cake but no matter what I said I couldn't convince him. (no worries it will be a recipe for another day). After looking at a bunch of different recipes this is the one he decided on. I'm a huge fan of Oreos AND Cheesecake so I knew I couldn't go wrong with this recipe. It was absolutely delicious and a perfect end to a Sunday dinner.

Oreo Cheesecake Bars
Crust:
25 Oreo Cookies
3 Tbsp. melted butter

Cheesecake:
12 oz. cream cheese at room temperature
6 Tbsp. sugar
6 Tbsp. sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg plus 1 additional egg yolk
10 Oreo Cookies- chopped

To make crust place Oreo Cookies in a large zip lock bag. Use rolling pin to smash cookies. Add melted butter and press crumbs into the bottom of an 8x8 pan. Bake the crust for 10 minutes at 325.

To make cheesecake beat cream cheese until light and smooth. Add sugar and mix well. Blend in sour cream, vanilla and salt. Beat in the egg and egg yolk until mixture is well blended. Stir in chopped oreos.

Pour cheesecake batter over the prepared crust and bake for 40 minutes at 325- until cheesecake is set around the edges but slightly wobbly in the center. Let cool at room temperature for approx. 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate f0r 3 hours. Keep refrigerated until served.

  3. I make something similar to this. I make the crust and then put a cream cheese/cool whip/powdered sugar mixture on top of it, then a pudding mixture, then cool whip and then crumble oreo's on top. If you want the recipe, let me know. Its a family favorite! But I really want to try this!!!
