Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups Oreo cookie crumbs (about 23 Oreos, finely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted, plus more for the pan

Filling

  • 3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar

  • 9 Oreo cookies for the top of the cheesecake

Pan Needed

  • 9 inch Spring Form Pan
