OREO Cheesecake

Thanks Bakingblonde for recipe and pics of this yummy looking cheesecake!~

Oreo Cheesecake

2 cups Oreo Cookie crumbs

3 TBS butter, melted

3 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened

1 can (14 oz.) Sweetened Condensed Milk

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 TBS flour

3 large eggs

1 tablespoons lime juice

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

15 Oreo Cookies, quartered

Oreo cookies for garnish if desired
Preheat oven to 300° F. Grease 9-inch springform pan.Fill an oven safe cake pan (I use a 9×9) 3/4 full with warm water. Set on bottom oven rack while oven is preheating.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine Oreo crumbs and butter, stir to combine. Press onto bottom and 1 inch up side of prepared pan.Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove and increase oven temperature to 350.
In a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese until creamy. Add sweetened condensed milk and beat until smooth. Add sugar and flour, beat to combine. Add eggs one at a time beating only to combine after each addition. When adding the third egg, also add the lime juice and vanilla extract; beat until combined.
Using a spatula, gently fold in the quartered Oreo cookies. Gently pour batter evenly into prebaked crust.

*You can arrange Oreo cookie pieces over top of batter for a pretty presentation if desired.

Bake in preheated oven for 50-65 minutes or until edge is set and center moves slightly. Watch carefully and do not overbake.Shut oven off and allow cheesecake to cool in oven for 1-4 hours. Run a warm knife around edge of cheesecake after 1 hour.Place in fridge to cool completely. (Remove the pan of water)Allow to chill at least 24 hours before serving for best flavor and texture.
