"Do not overcook this dish. Most seafoods...should be simply threatened with heat and then celebrated with joy."--Jeff Smith, The Frugal Gourmet

Ingredients:  
36 OREO Cookies, divided
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
3 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened room temperature

1 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream

Directions:
Heat oven to 350F.

Crush 26 cookies to form fine crumbs; coarsely chop remaining cookies. Mix crushed cookies with butter; press onto bottom and 2 inches up side of 9-inch springform pan.

Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add sour cream and vanilla; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Stir in coarsely chopped cookies. Pour into crust. Can sprinkle with additional chopped cookies if desired.

Bake 50 to 55 min. or until center is almost set.
Turn off the oven and prop door open several inches and let the cheese cake stay in the oven for one hour. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim. Refrigerate 4 hours.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Note
If using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan, reduce oven temperature to 325F.
Avoid opening the oven door while the cheesecake is baking inside. Big cracks are often caused by drafts and temperature changes.
Avoid overbaking! This is the most common culprit of cracking. When the cheesecake is done, there will still be a 2-inch to 3-inch wobbly spot in the center of the cheesecake. Also, the edges will be slightly puffed.
Once the cheesecake is done in the oven, simply turn the oven off and crack open the door. Leave the cheesecake inside for about 1 hour. Again, sudden changes in temperature often cause cracking.
Once the cheesecake is at room temperature, cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill 4-8 hours.
