OREO CHEESECAKE: National Cheesecake Day!

Today is National Cheesecake Day, and what could be better to celebrate with than an Oreo Cheesecake to celebrate. This recipe combines two of my favorite food groups! Oreos and Cheesecake. O.K., a little liberty there on actual food groups. But, the great thing about this recipe is it's quick and easy. No bake! Recipe modified from Philadelphia Cream Cheese at Kraft.
