1 and 1/2 cups crushed chocolate sandwich cookies
3 tablespoons melted butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine crumbs and butter and press into the bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
3 eggs at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 pound white chocolate, melted
With electric mixer at medium speed, mix cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well blended. Add the eggs, one at a time, blending well after each addition. Add the melted white chocolate and blend well. Pour over the crust and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
Loosen cake from pan with a sharp knife but don't remove the rim. Cool to room temperature and then refrigerate for several hours before removing the rim of the pan and serving. Garnish as desired.
