Oreo Cheesecake Bars

I wanted another dessert for Halloween and I have been needing some cheesecake in my life, so I had orange creme filled Oreos and used them in place of regular ones just to add a touch of color. It was simple way to add some holiday color with out overwhelmingly screaming 'Its Halloween!'. I just realized that you could really do it for any holiday and cause they make Oreo creme colors for every holiday.

Anyway, these bars are rich, creamy, and not too heavy. A great dessert for any occasion.

40 Oreo Cookies, divided

1 cup Granulated Sugar
1 cup Sour Cream
1 teaspoon Vanilla

1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a 9×13 baking dish with foil, with ends extending over sides. Finely crush 24 Oreo cookies. Melt 1/4 cup butter. Combine the Oreo crumbs with melted butter. Press onto bottom of the lined pan.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar until blended. Add sour cream and vanilla and mix well. Add the eggs in one at a time. Beating after each addition until just blended. Chop the rest of the Oreos. Gently stir into the batter and pour over crust.

3. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the sides are set and the center is almost set. Cool completely on a wire rack in the pan.
