OREO CHEESECAKE

INGREDIENTS
For the Crust:
  1. 20 Oreo cookies
  2. 4 tbsp [Challenge Butterhttps://challengedairy.com/cream-cheese], melted
  3. For the Cheesecake:
  4. 4 (8oz) bricks of Challenge Dairy cream cheese, softened
  5. 1 cup plain Greek Yogurt
  6. 1 cup sugar
  7. 1 tsp vanilla
  8. 4 large eggs
  9. 15 Oreo Cookies, roughly chopped

For the Topping:
  1. 15 Oreo Cookies, roughly chopped
  2. chocolate syrup for drizzling, if desired

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place a 9″x13″ pan on the bottom rack of your oven and fill half way with water. Position a rack just above the pan, in the middle of the oven.
  • To make the crust, use a food processor to chop up the 20 Oreo cookies until they turn to a fine crumb, drizzle in the melted butter and pulse until combined. Optionally, you can use your hands or a rolling pin to crush the cookies. Press the crumbs in a 10″ spring form pan in an even layer, and a little up the sides of the pan. Bake for 5 minutes, then remove from oven, set aside.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the greek yogurt, sugar and vanilla and beat until combined, scraping down the sides of bowl when necessary. Add the eggs one at a time, beating in between. Gently fold in the chopped Oreo cookies, then pour into the spring form pan. Bake for 1 hour, or until the center of the cheesecake is only slightly jiggly.
