Cheese story....

One friend once wrote that when she was 10, was thinking of running from home and prepared cheese sandwich for that purpose. (Alhamdulillah she didnt proceed with the running away ~ if not we might not have met..hehe..)

What caught my eyes was that "Cheese" ..even then she loved wonder now she bakes yummy cheese cakes! really!

I dont know how to make one (n dont think I'd be good in making it!..hehe) but with my friend around, can always "order" from her.. :-)

anyway, I found this free recipe from , may be one of these days I'll try it.

OREO(R) Cheesecake

1. 1 (18 ounce) package OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, divided
2. 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
3. 3 (8 ounce) packages PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
4. 3/4 cup sugar
5. 1 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
6. 1 teaspoon vanilla
7. 4 eggs

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F if using a 9-inch silver springform pan (or to 325 degrees F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan). Finely crush 30 of the cookies. Coarsely chop remaining 15 cookies; set aside. Mix crushed cookies with butter. Press firmly onto bottom and 2 inches up side of pan; set aside.

2. Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add sour cream and vanilla; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Gently stir in chopped cookies. Spread into prepared crust.

3. Bake 55 minutes to 1 hour or until set. (If necessary to prevent top from overbrowning, tent with foil during last 15 to 20 minutes of baking time.) Cool completely on wire rack.

4. Refrigerate at least 4 hours. Run knife or metal spatula around side of pan to loosen cake; remove side of pan before serving.

(Yield: 16 servings)
