The Best Oreo Cheesecake

Instructions: How to Make “The Best Oreo Cheesecake”

Now that you have all your ingredients and equipment ready, let’s get baking!

Preheat the Oven

Start by preheating your oven to 325°F (160°C). This will ensure your cheesecake bakes evenly.

Create the Oreo Crust

  1. In your food processor, crush 18 Oreo cookies until they are finely ground.
  2. Mix the crushed cookies with the melted butter.
  3. Press this cookie mixture into the bottom of your 9-inch springform pan to form the crust. Make sure it’s evenly distributed and compacted.

Prepare the Cheesecake Filling

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until it’s smooth and creamy.
  2. Add the granulated sugar and vanilla extract, and continue beating until well combined.
  3. One at a time, add the eggs, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Stir in the coarsely chopped Oreo cookies. This will give your cheesecake delightful Oreo crunches.

Assemble and Bake

  1. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the Oreo crust in your springform pan.
  2. Bake for approximately 45-50 minutes, or until the center is set and the edges have a light golden hue.

Cool and Chill

  1. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. This will make it easier to remove from the pan later.
  2. After cooling, run a knife around the edges to loosen the cheesecake.
  3. Chill the cheesecake in the refrigerator for several hours or, ideally, overnight. This helps it set and allows the flavors to meld beautifully.

Garnish and Serve

  1. Before serving, add a generous dollop of whipped cream to the top of your cheesecake.
  2. Decorate with additional Oreo cookies for that wow factor.
