1 pkg. (16 oz.) Oreo cookies, divided
1/4 cup butter, melted
4 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sour cream
4 eggs

Heat oven to 325 degrees.

Spray the bottom only of a 9-inch springform pan. Process 30 cookies in food processor until finely ground. Add butter and mix well. Press onto bottom of pan.

Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Add sour cream and mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition until just blended. Chop remaining cookies and add to batter. Pour over crust.

Bake for approximately 1 hour or until center is almost set. Run a small knife around the rim of the pan to loosen cake and then allow to cool completely. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving. Remove rim of pan to slice and serve.
