This was a HUGE hit, both at home and at work. My coworkers loved the "oreo cookie" touch. It takes some time and is very rich, but if you like rich cheesecakes, it is worth it. I used 2 c oreo cookies minus the cream, 1/2c butter and 4 tbsp sugar...I baked just the crust for 10 minutes at 350. Lowered temp to 325 for the cheesecake. Choclate: used stovetop, much easier that way. Syrup: Used seedless raspberry preserve. Creamcheese/sugar: used 1 tbsp cornstarch, it prevents cracks, and added vanilla beans to the sugar. Used a bain marie (waterbath, used greased wax paper at the bottom of the pan before putting the crust, makes removal easier. Greased sides liberally, prevents cracking. (Wrap bottm and sides in foil before putting it in the bain marie). Cake was done at 50 minutes. Let it sit in the oven for 3 hrs till both the oven and the cake cooled down, and then in the fridge overnight. It was delicious. Btw this was my first attempt at a cheesecake and it came out perfect after the steps above...no one at work believed that I had never baked a cheesecake before!
