Simple Oreo Cheesecake Recipe

simple oreo cheesecake recipe

Oreo cheesecake is an eye-catching, vibrant dessert (or cake?) that combines the creaminess and smooth texture of classic cheesecake with the taste and contrasting appearance of popular Oreo cookies. This cheesecake stands out for its appealing look, somewhat reminiscent of ice cream with chocolate chips. Here is a simple Oreo cheesecake recipe.

Just like the classic version, Oreo cheesecake has a cookie crust, but in this recipe, we’ll make it with Oreo cookies. This gives us an almost black base that beautifully contrasts with the light cream cheese filling. Additionally, Oreo cookies lend the crust a rich chocolate flavor and crunchy texture, which contrasts wonderfully with the creamy cheese filling.

The cream cheese filling of the Oreo cheesecake is as tender and creamy as in the classic version, but this time, instead of heavy cream, I added thick yogurt (Greek yogurt) to balance the sweetness of the cookies and the richness of the cream cheese. As a result, the cheesecake turned out very tender, with a smooth, silky texture. I also added quite large chunks of Oreo cookies to the cheese filling, which provides a very interesting effect both in appearance and taste, adding a delightful texture contrast.

How to make baked Oreo Cheesecake:

Prepare the crust:

  1. Preheat the oven to 160ºC.
  2. Melt the butter.
  3. Crush the cookies for the crust into fine crumbs. Add the melted butter and mix well.
  4. Line the bottom of a springform pan with parchment paper, pour the cookie crumbs on it, and evenly distribute, pressing with a spoon or the bottom of a glass or other flat object.
  5. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and let cool. Set the oven temperature to 130ºC.

Prepare the filling:

  1. While the crust is cooling, prepare the cheese filling. Using a mixer with a whisk attachment, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Add the yogurt and mix again until smooth on low mixer speed. Add the egg and mix once more. Do not overbeat; we don’t want extra air bubbles in the cheesecake.
  2. Cut the 8 Oreo cookies into medium-sized pieces (each cookie into 4-6 pieces) and add them to the cheese mixture. Mix everything together and pour the mixture into the pan over the crust.
  3. Bake the cheesecake for 70-80 minutes at 130ºC. The cheesecake is done when the edges hold their shape, and the center wobbles slightly when you shake the pan.
  4. Let the cheesecake cool in the turned-off oven with the door closed for 1 hour. Then, remove the pan from the oven and let the cheesecake cool completely at room temperature.
  5. Place the cheesecake in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours to fully set and develop its texture.

Decorate:

  1. Run a knife along the sides of the pan. Open the springform and carefully remove it.
  2. Decorate the cheesecake with Oreo cookies, either crushed into crumbs or broken into larger pieces.

  4. Bake the cheesecake (130ºC, 70 minutes).

I recommend cutting the cheesecake with a hot, wet knife (dip it in boiling water before each cut).
