Ingredients Notes For Oreo Cheesecake:

  • Crust:
    • Oreo Cookies: Crushed, including the cream filling, to form the base.
    • Butter: Melted to bind the crust together.
  • Cheesecake Filling:
    • Cream Cheese: Full-fat cream cheese for the richest, creamiest texture.
    • Sugar: Sweetens the cheesecake filling.
    • Eggs: Help set the cheesecake and provide structure.
    • Sour Cream: Adds a slight tang and extra creaminess.
    • Vanilla Extract: Enhances the flavor.
    • Oreo Cookies: Chopped, to mix into the cheesecake filling for added texture and flavor.

Recipe Steps:

  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Line the bottom of a springform pan with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the Crust:
    • Crush the Oreo cookies into fine crumbs using a food processor. Mix the crumbs with melted butter until well combined. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared springform pan to form an even layer. Bake for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
  3. Make the Cheesecake Filling:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing on low speed until just combined. Mix in the sour cream and vanilla extract until smooth.
    • Gently fold in the chopped Oreo cookies until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  4. Assemble and Bake:
    • Pour the cheesecake batter over the cooled crust, spreading it evenly. Tap the pan gently on the counter to release any air bubbles.
    • Place the springform pan in a larger baking pan. Fill the larger pan with hot water halfway up the sides of the springform pan to create a water bath. This helps the cheesecake bake evenly and prevents cracking.
    • Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until the center is set but still slightly jiggly. Turn off the oven, open the door slightly, and let the cheesecake cool in the oven for 1 hour.
  5. Chill:
    • Remove the cheesecake from the oven and water bath. Run a knife around the edge of the cheesecake to loosen it from the sides of the pan. Let it cool completely at room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  6. Serve:
    • Before serving, optionally garnish the cheesecake with whipped cream and additional crushed Oreo cookies. Slice and enjoy!

Storage Options:

  • Refrigerate: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • Freeze: Freeze the cheesecake (without toppings) for up to 1 month. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
