I found this recipe in a magazine about a year ago, and thought, since
we have been talking about cheesecakes lately, someone might be interested.

1 (20 oz.) package OREO chocolate sandwich cookies
1/3 cup margarine, melted
3 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
4 eggs, at room temp.
1 cup dairy sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Finely roll 30 cookies; coarsely chop 20 cookies.
In bowl, combine finely rolled cookie crumbs and margarine.
Press on bottom and 2 inches up side of 9-inch spring form pan; set aside.

With mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar until creamy; blend in eggs, 
sour cream and vanilla extract; fold in chopped cookies.  Spread mixture
into prepared crust.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 60 minutes or until set.

Cool on wire rack; chill at least 4 hours.  Halve remaining cookies;
remove side of pan.  Garnish with whipped cream and cookie halves.
