What you need

Crust

20cm spring form baking tin

22 Oreos finely chopped
2 tablespoons butter melted

Filling

250g Philadelphia cream cheese or other firm cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
5 or 6 oreos coarsely chopped

Topping


6-8 oreos chopped fairly coarsly

The process

Grease the bottom and sides of the baking tin well with a little butter or spray with spray and cook.

Melt the butter in a pot and add the finely chopped oreos and mix together well making sure that the oreos are coated.

Press into the bottom of the cake tin and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl add the cream cheese and sugar, beat with an electric beater for 1-2 minutes until creamy and well combined.

Add all of the  vanilla essence, beat again and then the eggs one at a time, beating for about 30 seconds between each addition(as soon as each egg is blended in, add the next).

Add the coarsely chopped oreos and fold them into the mixture.

Pour the mixture into the baking tin and bake at 180 Celsius for about 45-50 minutes or until firm to the touch.

Check on it after half and hour and if you see the top going too brown cover with tin foil.

Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Remove from the tin by sliding a knife around the edge before remove the sides. Sprinkle the rest of the chopped oreos over the top on their own, or add a little whipped cream.
