Ingredients
For the Crust:
  • 20 Oreo Cookies
  • 3 Tablespoon Butter, Melted
For the Cheesecake:
  • (2) 8 Ounce Packages of Cream Cheese, Softened
  • ½ Cup White Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Peppermint Extract
  • 2 Eggs
  • 9 Strawberries
  • Cool Whip or Whipped Cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Crush oreos with a wooden spoon or rolling pin. (You can also use a food processor if you have one).
  3. In a small bowl, mix oreo crumbs and melted butter. Press into an 8x8 or 9x9 inch baking pan.
  4. In a large bowl mix cream cheese, sugar, and peppermint extract until well combined. Add eggs. Mix until just combined. Spread evenly over crust.
  5. Bake 25-30 minutes or until the center is set. Cool completely.
  6. Cut in 9 squares. Top with strawberries and whipped cream if desired. (I topped the strawberry with a dot of icing to resemble a Santa hat as well).
  7. Refrigerate several hours before serving.
