  1. Finely grind Oreo cookies. Add melted butter and sugar, and gently mix with a fork to combine and fully coat the crumbs.
  2. Press into a 9" spring form pan and set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 220º F.
  4. In a large mixer, on low, combine room temperature cream cheese, sugar, flour, and salt until smooth.
  5. Add in 4 full eggs, plus 2 egg yolks one at a time until thoroughly incorporated.
  6. Add vanilla and sour cream, and beat until combined.
  7. Pour cheesecake mixture into pan and bake for 90 minutes.
  8. Increase temperature to 300º F and continue to bake for another 15-20 minutes. Cheesecake should be firm, and very lightly golden.
  9. Remember to run a knife around the edge of the cheesecake as soon as it comes out to help avoid any possible cracking.
  10. Allow to cool to room temperature before covering placing in the fridge 3-24 hours.
