Oreo cookie crumbs for cheesecake crust

misterbrucie | Nov 26, 2007 07:49 PM

OK, I feel a little silly asking about this... but I'm trying not to enslave myself to my cheesecake to the point where I will buy a box of Oreos, dismantle them one by one and scrape out the insides. Teddy Grahams or graham cracker crumbs plus cocoa powder are just not the same. I guess I could buy a ready-made oreo crust and crumble it into my own cheesecake pan, but those things are way expensive and it would be a big waste of packaging materials etc.

Does anybody know where or how I can get hold of Oreo Cookie Crumbs? I'm sure I remember seeing them sold in boxes like graham cracker crumbs, but now I can't find them anywhere. My friends are no help. I'm looking online, but haven't been able to find anything [yet] except food-service sites where you have to order a minimum of three 25-pound cases.


P.S. Just found an old thread that says Nabisco has discontinued them. Say it ain't so, somebody!
