Oreo Cheesecake

My infamous Oreo Cheesecake!! I made this for our Mother's day dinner last Sunday. I pull this one out on holidays, otherwise it would be too dangerous to keep around!!!
2 cups oreo cookie crumbs (take out the filling of the cookie before you crush them in the food processor)
6 Tbsp. melted butter
4 Tbsp. sugar
5 pkg (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened (or 2 1/2 lbs)
1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1 cup light sour cream
4 eggs
3 cups crushed oreo cookies
1 tube cream cheese frosting
12-15 whole oreo cookies for the top
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Mix crumbs, sugar and butter, press firmly onto bottom and up the sides of a spring form pan. Bake 10 minutes.
Beat cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla in electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add sour cream, mix well. Add eggs mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Stir in crushed oreos. Pour over crust. Bake 1 hour 10 min. or until center is almost set. Cool completely, keep covered in fridge for 4 hours or overnight until ready to frost, decorate and serve. Frost cake with cream cheese frosting and decorate with whole oreo cookies.
Makes 16 servings, one slice each. ENJOY!!
