Divine Oreo Cookie Cheesecake

Divine Oreo Cookie Cheesecake

A divine Oreo cookie cheesecake you say? Well yes! It’s divine, delicious and very bad for you! Just eat it for lunch 😉

Who doesn’t like Oreo cookies? I know I do! Twist them, eat the white stuff first and than the chocolate biscuit or just munch them away as they are… Or, pop them in a cheesecake! What’s better than to combine two delicious treats!

Oreos

As some of you have already had the pleasure of tasting this cake (and asking for the recipe) I decided to make it again, take photos and share the, very easy, recipe.

Oreos

So here goes;

Ingredients for the crust

  • 1,5 package of Oreo’s = 24 pieces (of which 10 are for the filling)
  • 40g butter
  • 2 tbsp bread crumbs

Preparation of the crust

  1. Crush all the cookies by hand (with a rolling pin is easy) or kitchen machine until coarse.
  2. Remove about 10 pieces and set aside (they will be for the filling and topping).
  3. Grind the rest finely.
  4. Melt the butter and add the cookies crumbs and bread crumbs.
  5. Press into a (greased and lined with baking paper) baking tin.
  6. Set aside to harden in a cool place.
  7. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees (for fan or 175 in conventional oven)

Oreo

Ingredients for the filling

  • 1 kg (big bin) of cream cheese (if you can find them the ones that say they are especially for cheesecakes)
  • 250 gr sugar
  • 1 tbsp potato or corn flour
  • 2 tbsp semolina (or 1 extra tbsp corn flour and 1 extra egg)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 4 eggs

Preparation

  1. Mix the eggs and sugar until light, white and airy
  2. Mix in the potato flour and semolina (or substitutes). Add baking powder and mix slightly
  3. Fold in the cream cheese (easier if you’ve whipped it a bit before you add it) and about 2/3 pieces of Oreo
  4. Pour into the baking tin and either top with the rest of the Oreos (looks best) or do that after baking (they will be crispier)
  5. Bake for about 1 hour: watch closely so it doesn’t burn. If it seems to be getting to dark, turn down the temperature.
  6. Take out of the oven and leave to cool completely.
  7. It’s best eaten cold
Jip really couldn't wait for it to cool
