How To Make Our Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Bars Recipe:
Begin by preheating the oven to 325 degrees.
Then, line a 9×13 inch pan with aluminum foil, leaving about 2 inches on the sides, and then spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
To make the crust place 28 Oreos in a food processor and blend them until they are finely ground.
Then pour the ground Oreos into a large mixing bowl along with the melted butter and stir it all together until the crumbs become moist from the butter.
Now, place the crumb mix into the bottom of the foil lined pan and press the oreo mix firmly into the bottom of the pan, trying to get it evenly spread out amongst the whole pan.
Once that is done, put the pan in the oven for 10 minutes to bake the crust slightly.
After 10 minutes, move the pan to a wire rack to cool, but be sure to leave the oven on.
While the crust is cooling down, begin to make the cheesecake filling.
In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, mix together the cream cheese and sugar until they are completely combined. (This should take about 2 minutes.)
Scrape down the bowl and then beat everything together again to make sure all of the cream cheese is smooth.
Then, add the sour cream, vanilla extract, and salt, and mix everything until it is combined.
Now, scrape down the bowl again and then add the eggs. But, only add one egg at a time, beating everything together in between each egg.
After you have added the last egg, scrape down the bowl and beat everything together one last time.
Now, use your spatula to fold in the roughly chopped Oreos into the cream cheese mixture.
Once that is done, pour the cream cheese and oreo mixture into the cooked cookie crust, smoothing out the filling throughout the whole pan.
Place the prepared pan in the oven and bake the bars for 40 minutes or until the filling only jiggles slightly when you shake the pan.
Then, remove the bars from the oven and put the pan on a wire rack to cool to room temperature. (This will take about an hour or so.)
After it is done cooling down, cover the pan and store it in the fridge for at least 3 hours. ( I like to chill mine overnight.)
When the bars are done chilling, use the excess foil to pull the bars out of the pan and place them on a cutting board.
Then, use a sharp knife to cut the cheesecake into bars. While cutting, rinse and wipe the knife between each cut for best results.
When you are done cutting the bars they will be ready to serve right away or place them back in the fridge until you are ready to serve them.
