My husband said to me before he took a bite of these bars "Before you started this baking thing, I didn't realize that Oreos were an ingredient." I just had to laugh. Personally, I think it's a wonderful ingredient! I was really excited to make these since Oreos has been one of my cravings during this pregnancy. The catch is, this makes a lot. Fortunately I timed it with my book club this month (again), so I will be bringing them to share tomorrow night. Since it's a cheesecake base, I knew that it would have to be in the fridge for awhile, so I decided to make it a day ahead of time. Plus, this gave me a chance to taste it first :-)
These bars are really easy to make. I read through the recipe the day before, so I knew that the cream cheese, eggs and sour cream needed to be room temperature. The crust is made with crushed up Oreos and then the base is cream cheese (and lots of it) and more Oreos. It bakes, cools and then chills. And then they are ready to eat! Yum! I thought they tasted great. I can't wait to share with the gals at book club tomorrow night.
