Marshall’s Birthday: Oreo Cheesecake

My husband’s birthday is coming up, and I want to make it special. It’s his first birthday since we’ve been married, and it’s his 25th, so those two facts make it special already. I’m all about birthdays and really celebrating the person, so to start I’ll get to his heart, of course, through food!

I’m going to post all the things I plan to make for him for his birthday and the great thing about it is he’s not online very often so if he checked out my blog it will be way after the fact anyway!

So I thought I’d start backwards with desert!

Crust: Filling:
2 ½ cups Cookie Crumbles
4 tbsp. Butter

4 (8 oz.) Cream Cheese
1 ½ cups Sugar
2 tbsp. Flour
4 Eggs, room temperature
3 lg. Egg Yolks, room temperature
1/3 cup Whipping Cream
2 tsp. Vanilla
1 ¾ cup Oreos, chopped
2 cup Sour Cream

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Crust: Butter the spring form pan. Mix the crumbled cookies and the butter together and press into the bottom of the pan and 2/3 sides of pan. Refrigerate while mixing the filling.

Filling: Beat cream cheese with mixer until still smooth. Add 1 1/4 cups sugar and beat well for 3 minutes. Mix in flour while beating continuously add eggs and yolks mix until smooth. Beat in whipping cream and 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Pour half the batter into the prepared crust. Sprinkle with chopped Oreos. Pour the remaining batter over that, some of the cookies may rise to the top. Place the pan on baking sheet.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 225 degrees for 50 minutes. Remove cake from oven increase oven to 350 degrees. Stir together sour cream, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla. Spread over the cake and bake for 7 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool overnight. Can be refrigerated up to 3 days.

Tip: If you want a little more variety add some crushed up peanut butter cups!
