Recipe by Sharon Sharalike

I made this cheesecake for a family dinner and received rave reviews. I hope you like it. The recipe called for regular cream cheese, but I used light cream cheese and it worked. Enjoy.

I have made this recipe many, many times and always get fabulous reviews. I use Oreo cookies whirled around in a food processor for the sugar or butter needed. I also leave off the coffee cream because it is simply gilding the lily. Super simple, yet incredibly impressive.
