  • 20 vanilla sandwich cookies

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

In a food processor pulse the cookies until they are small crumbs. Stir in 3 tablespoons melted butter. Press into the bottom of an eight-inch spring form pan.

In a mixer, add the sugar, sour cream, eggs, and vanilla and mix for about one minute. Add the cream cheese and mix until smooth. Mix in the 2 tablespoons melted butter and fold in one cup of the Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips.
