Oreo Cheesecake (With out the Water Bathtub)

In case you’re a fan of my cheesecake brownies or Oreo cake, you’re going to like this Oreo cheesecake! It’s creamy, chocolatey, and completely decadent. I take advantage of Oreos in each the crust and the batter, and though it’s elective, I extremely advocate including the chocolate ganache and home made whipped cream topping.

This really isn’t a brand new recipe, however I’m making a number of slight adjustments to the unique. We’re utilizing a thinner ganache layer to essentially let the traditional cheesecake taste shine, and we’re baking it at a decrease temperature. I’m additionally utilizing extra Oreos within the crust to assist encourage it to go even larger up the edges of the pan (this helps stop cracks!).

Talking of the crust, I initially really useful pulverizing the cookies complete; nevertheless, the oil within the cream filling would usually seep out by way of the springform pan and make a multitude within the oven. To treatment this, I now advocate discarding the cream earlier than pulverizing the cookies into crumbs (we’ll go away the cookies complete within the batter although!).

Oh, and there’s additionally lastly a video to go along with this recipe now–hold scrolling to observe 😊

What You Want

For finest outcomes and an Oreo cheesecake that’s not more likely to crack, I like to recommend utilizing all room-temperature substances:

  • Cream cheese. I solely advocate utilizing the brick-style, full-fat cream cheese. Tub-style cream cheese won’t arrange correctly!

I found this tip when making my lemon cheesecake and it’s a complete game-changer!
