Oreo Cookie Cheesecake

Ingredients

2 cups Crushed chocolate wafers or chocolate cru
cup Melted butter
1/4 cup Sugar
4 pkt (8 oz) cream cheese
1 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
Melted , good-quality semi-sweet chocolate

Preparation

1
Base: Mix together and pat firmly into a 10 inch springform
2
Filling: Soften cream cheese and beat until smooth. Add sugar and beat. Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each one. Mix in lemon juice. Pour over crumb base. Bake at 350 for 35 -45 minutes. Cake has baked long enough when center has become firm. Usually the cake will start browning on the edges
3
Topping: I basically add some whipping cream to some melted , good-quality semi-sweet chocolate. I add just enough to make the chocolate smooth and spreadable. I probably use 4 oz of chocolate and approx. 4-5 TBSP. of whipping cream. Spread it onto top of cooled but not chilled cheesecake.
5
Garnish: Whipped cream stars around outside, approx. 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Cut Oreo cookies in half to place on their edges around the cake in the stars.
6
* Don't overbake. Just baking enough to firm the middle means a creamy interior. Serve cake well chilled
