Oreo cheesecake is a fantastic blend of the already divine plain cheesecake recipe with one of America's all time favorite cookies, the Oreo. Growing up, my grandma used to always make this cheesecake for my brother and me. She knew it was one of our favorites! It was always a special day when grandma would bring us an Oreo cheesecake. I felt like a Princess whenever I would see her walking up the driveway with her cheesecake tote bag and knowing the whole time that there was an Oreo cheesecake inside. There were times I could hardly contain myself!

I remember when we used to make the Oreo cheesecake together in grandma's kitchen, (and we still do) she would let me crush up all of the Oreos. Crushing the Oreos was always my favorite part. A couple years ago, my grandma gave me a book she had put together that had many of her favorite cheesecake recipes in it, including the Oreo. It is a gift I will always treasure.

Now every time I bake one of her cheesecakes, I always bring over a slice for us to enjoy together. This Oreo cheesecake has always been my favorite to make and it always makes me smile when I think of the time me and grandma spend in the kitchen talking, laughing, and baking cheesecakes. There's just nothing better!
