Rainee, I don't think so. The crust was mint cookies. But, I am going to keep this incase I can't find the other one. this sounds good too. And I can just substitute oreos for thin mints too. I have been searching for 2 days for this darn recipe. I can't believe a let it slip my hands. Thank a bunch :D

3/4 cup Thin Mints -- crushed
2 Eggs -- beaten
1 teaspoon Vanilla
Second Layer Filling:
2 8 oz pkgs cream cheese

Kansas, I might have to try this. I'm a little scared, I just made a girlscout mint cookie cheesecake this weekend that I have been dying to make for a year and it didn't turn out the way I thought it would. I was thinking that cheesecake isn't supposed to taste like mint. I don't think it had enough mint in it and It wasn't sweet enough. I think I am going to make this since it has liqueur instead of extract. I hope that will make a difference. thanks
