Oreo Coffee Cheesecake
I love just about any type of cheesecake and since my husband made extra coffee this morning, I went with an Oreo coffee cheesecake and it was absolutely delicious! It's best to make this cheesecake the day before because it needs 4-5 hours of cooling and chilling in the refrigerator.

Using a hand-held electric mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth and creamy.

- 9. Then add eggs one at a time and mix on low speed just until combined. Gently fold in remaining Oreo cookies making sure not to over-mix.
- 10. Pour the filling into the cooled crust. Place the springform pan into a large roasting pan and place in the oven.
- 11. Fill the roasting pan up with hot water until the water level comes about halfway up the outside of the cheesecake pan.
- 12. Bake in preheated oven 50 - 60 minutes, or until the center is almost set.
- 13. Turn the oven off and open the door slightly. Let the cheesecake rest in the oven for 1 hour.
