Danielle, this is a typical morning for us:

Eating breakfast while watching Sesame Street, then we get dressed, play or do Tot School and then lunch/nap. Really not that exciting. ;)

Lauren it is a backed full-out cheese cake! Here is the recipe:

(For some reason the picture of the fake plastic food looks so much better than mine!)


Prep: 20 minutes plus refrigerating Bake: 45 minutes

1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz.) OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, divided
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, melted
4 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN sour cream
4 eggs

PREHEAT oven o 325 F. Place 30 cookies in food processor; cover. Process 30 or 45 sec. or until finely ground. Add butter; mix well. Press firmly onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan.

BEAT cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until will blended. Add sour cream; mix will. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Chop remaining cookies. Gently stir 1-1/2 cups of the chopped cookies into cream cheese batter. Pour over crust; sprinkle with remaining chopped cookies.

BAKE 45 min. or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Cut into 16 pieces. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator. Makes 16 servings, 1 piece each.

TIP: For easy removal, line pan with foil, with ends extending over pan's sides. Lift from pan, using foil handles.

The recipe obviously doesn't need to use the name brand items it's all just an advertisement! But I would recommend refrigerating over night to completely set the cake, four hours only gets the edge pieces mostly set.

This recipe was on the back of the KRAFT food & family recipe magazine Holiday 2006 issue. If you don't get this magazine go sign up now! Brad and I have found several fun dinner recipes in the pages of this magazine.
