Pour half of the strawberry sauce on top of cheesecake. Use remaining sauce however you wish, I like adding it to lemonade, yum! Bake at 325 degrees for 36 minutes or until cheesecake is just slightly jiggly. Take out of oven and let cool on a wire rack. Crush remaining oreos and sprinkle on top, gently pushing into the bars. Place in a fridge covered and let set for at least 3 hours until cutting into squares.
