Oreo Cheesecake

Homemade cheesecakes are the favorite dessert at my house! Whether it be the cookie monster cheesecake or the vanilla bean cheesecake, they disappear too quickly each time! This time around, I went all in on oreos with an oreo crust, oreos in the filling, and crushed oreos on top! This cheesecake tastes so incredible!

Tips on oreo cheesecake recipe

  • I used a 9″ springform pan but I would suggest using 8″.  It will end up a lot thicker.
  • If you want to pipe swirls of chocolate ganache on top of the cheesecake, make a double batch of the ganache.  I only had enough extra for this one piece.

Ingredients

Oreo Crust

  • 20 oreo cookies
  • 6 tbsp butter melted

Cookies and Cream Cheesecake

  • 16 oz cream cheese
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 15 oreo cookies crusted

Chocolate Ganache

  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Pinch of salt

Decoration

  • 4 oreos crushed

Instructions

Oreo Crust

  1. Preheat the over to 350 degrees. Butter and dust a 8" springform pan with flour.

  2. Place oreos in food processor and blend until fine. Transfer to a mixing bowl and pour in melted butter. Mix until well combined before transferring to to springform pan. Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes.

Cookies and Cream Cheesecake

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, whip together cream cheese, cornstarch, and granulated sugar until smooth. Add in cream, salt, and vanilla, continuing to whip until all ingredients are well combined. Add in one egg at a time, mixing until fully combined. Fold in crushed oreos, do not over mix.

  2. Pour cheesecake batter over oreo crust. Tightly double wrap the bottom of the springform pan with two pieces of foil. Place the springform pan in a larger baking tray and fill the baking tray with hot water. The water level should be halfway up the sides of the springform pan. Place the baking tray in the oven and bake for 60-70 minutes. The cheesecake should be set but still a bit jiggly in the middle.

  3. Turn off oven and let the cheesecake cool for 15-30 minutes while still inside the oven with the oven door left ajar. This helps finish cooking the cheesecake a bit more.

  4. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature for about 4 hours.

  5. Loosen the cheesecake from pan. Refrigerate overnight.

Chocolate Ganache

  1. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Add in cream and salt, microwaving in 30-second intervals, stirring in between until chocolate is melted. Once smooth, let cool. It needs to be thick and cool while still being spreadable.

Decorate

  1. Once cheesecake is chilled, spread the chocolate ganache all over the cheesecake. Sprinkle crushed oreo cookies on top and serve.
