Oreo cheesecake

Posted on: November 12, 2008

I often make cheesecakes so i’m surprised i haven’t posted a recipe yet. The best thing about most cheesecake recipes is that you can just change the main ingredient to whatever takes your fancy. As usual, i was feeling peckish for something sweet so after scouring my cupboard for some inpiration, i stumbled across a packet of Oreos i had bought last month (and subsequently forgotten about!). 

It is quite easy to put together, it’s just the waiting time that i don’t like (i am not the most patient person at the best of times – something i am working on).

Oreo Cheesecake

  • 1 packet digestive biscuits (i used Marie biscuits)
  • 80 grams butter (melted)
  • 2 teaspoons gelatine
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2x 250 grams cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 200ml thickened cream
  • 150 grams white chocolate (melted)

Method

  1. Grease and line a square or circle 9 inch pan
  2. To make the crust, place the biscuits in a food processor or blender and pulse until you have fine crumbs
  3. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the melted butter until combined
  4. Press evenly into the pan and use the back of a spoon to even and smooth out any chunks
  5. In a small saucepan, combine the gelatine and water over medium heat. Stir until the gelatine has completely dissolved
  6. With an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, vanilla and sugar until creamy
  7. Add cream, white chocolate and gelatine and mix until well combined
  8. With a rolling pin or mallet, gently smash the Oreo’s until they are crushed (i put them in a zip lock bag to prevent mess everywhere)
  9. Place Oreos into the mix and with a wooden spoon gently fold through
  10. Pour mixture into the pan and refridgerate overnight (we waited 3 hours and it was sufficent!)
