Ingredients
  • Crust
  • 24 mint oreo cookies
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • Cheesecake Filling
  • 2 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 10 mint oreo cookies coarsely chopped
  • Fudge sauce for serving
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with foil, allowing it to hang over two sides to create handles. Set aside.
  2. For the crust, pulse the 24 mint oreos in a food processor until you have fine crumbs. Add in the melted butter and pulse until combined. Add to your prepared pan and pat out into an even layer. Bake for 10 minutes.
  3. While the crust is baking start preparing the cheesecake filling. In a large bowl beat the cream cheese until smooth, either in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer. Slowly add in the sugar and beat until combined. Add in the eggs one at a time beating and scraping the bowl well after each egg. Add in the cream and extracts and beat until combined, scraping the bowl frequently. Gently fold in the chopped oreos.
  4. Pour the batter over the prepared crust and smooth out any bubbles. Bake for 40-45 minutes. The edges should be set and the center a little jiggly.
  5. Cool the cheesecake on a wire rack for 1 1/2 hours, then cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours before serving.
  6. To serve lift the cheesecake out of the pan using the foil handles. Cut into squares and top with crushed oreos and drizzle with warmed fudge sauce if desired.
