Todd's Oreo Cheesecake

After a few years of making my usual cheesecake, I am branching out.  I'm taking the base recipe in new directions, starting with an Oreo Cheesecake:  

Mix well. Place in bottom of a 9-inch springform pan and press down firmly. If making a 12-inch cheesecake, increase crust ingredients by 50%

Soften cheese (unless you have one of those 300+ watt Kitchen Aid type mixers; then let it do the heavy work instead). Using electric mixer, blend the cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Then add one egg at a time (beat after each) and the sour cream. Beat until smooth. Fold in the quartered Oreos. Pour filling over pie crust in pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Open the oven door gently and let stand 1 hour to cool before removing. Chill in refrigerator.

Helpful hint: For even cooking, place pan of boiling water onto rack below cheesecake during baking. This will also help prevent cracking.
