What is it about cheesecake that makes it so universally beloved? Cheesecake is the one dessert that I can always count on to be a hit with my friends and family, especially during the holiday season.

Double-decker OREO cheesecake

When I saw a recipe for a double-decker OREO cheesecake on KraftRecipes.com recently, I was sure to print it and hang it on my refrigerator as a reminder. It was a recipe that I didn’t want to forget to try, and this week, I plucked the recipe from beneath it’s magnet and headed to the grocery store to pick up the ingredients.

I don’t know about your family, but mine will usually thumb-up any recipe that includes OREO’s.

This cheesecake is easy to make, and the addition of the OREO Chocolate Creme Cookies on top really make it stand out as a beautiful cheesecake. It would also be a wonderful dessert for your Thanksgiving feast.

The OREO crust was perfect, and the two layers of cheesecake are cool, creamy and absolutely delicious.
