Step 1:

  • To make the crust::
  • Step 2:

  • prepare a 9" spring form pan by greasing or spraying it on the bottom and up the sides.
  • Step 3:

  • Step 4:

  • toss the oreo crumbs with the melted butter and press in the bottom of the pan, coming up about ½" on the sides, then set aside.
  • Step 5:

  • filling:
  • Step 6:

  • preheat oven to 175 c
  • Step 7:

  • Step 8:

  • use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese and sugar together until just combined – about 1 minute. Add the sour cream, vanilla, and salt and mix well.
  • Step 9:

  • Step 10:

  • with the mixer on low, add the eggs one at a time, until just blended – then use a spatula to gently fold in the oreo pieces.
  • Step 11:

  • Step 12:

  • pour the cream cheese mixture over the crust and bake for about 1 hour, or until the center is almost set, but not quite. There should be about a 2" ring in the center that is still a bit wobbly – it will continue to cook after it is removed from the oven. (i bake my cheesecakes in a water bath to help prevent cracking. To do that wrap a ring of aluminum foil around the bottom of the outside of the springform pan, coming up about halfway up the sides. Put the cheesecake in a large baking pan or tray, then add hot water from a tea kettle to come about 1" up the sides. Check the water level after about 40 minutes into baking and add more if needed.)
