The Best Oreo Cheesecake Recipe

Updated on April 15, 2016
Source

This is a recipe for an Oreo cheesecake, one of the quick easy desserts I like to to make. It is best to make this the day before, so that it has ample time to cool. If you are making it the same day, then allow at least three hours to cool.

Ingredients

Crust:

  • 16 Oreo cookies crushed
  • 3 tbsp. melted butter

Pie filling:

  • 1 8 ounce package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 can Eagle brand condensed milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of sugar (optional)
  • 6 Oreo cookies, crushed

Toppings:

  • 6 Oreo cookies, chopped or crushed

Instructions

First, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Making the Crust:

  • Put the 16 Oreo cookies into a gallon size plastic bag and remove all the air before sealing it. Crush them by using a rolling pin. It is important to crush the cookies until there are no large pieces remaining.
  • Place in a mixing bowl with the 3 tbsp. of melted butter and mix thoroughly. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan.

2. Making the Filling:

  • Place the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl and mix with an electric hand mixer until well blended.
  • Add the condensed milk and continue to mix until the mixture is smooth.
  • Add the 6 crushed Oreo cookies and mix for a few seconds until combined. Pour over the crust.
  • Omit the sugar if you want a more traditional cheesecake taste. The sugar helps the Oreos to blend into the recipe better, but some people prefer not to use the sugar in this recipe because it makes the cheesecake very sweet.

3. Baking the Cheesecake

  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. The cooking time will vary, depending on your oven so it is a good idea to check it at 30 minutes to make sure it doesn’t overcook.
  • Cool the cheesecake in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
  • Sprinkle with 6 crushed or chopped Oreo cookies just before serving.

Note: You can make a regular cheesecake using this recipe by removing the Oreo cookies from the filling and topping and substituting graham crackers for Oreos when making the crust.

        You don't mention if we must keep the fillings of the oreos for the curst or mixture. You also don't specify that 350 degrees are farenheint and not celsius. One has to look through the comments to find that information.

        I was half way through the recipe when I decided to read the comments and all the bad reviews. I was so close to throwing in the towel when I thought, what the heck?! JUST DO IT! So here's what I did; I opted out of the sugar and added another package of cream cheese. The batter was darker because I had already mixed in the crushed Oreos so they had basically emulsified by the time I added the 2nd pkg of cream cheese and mixed again. Next time I will only add 3 crushed cookies instead of 6 to see if that will make a difference in color. I did a water bath because that's how a typical cheese cake is made, despite the recipe not calling for one. Baked it for 30 minutes, let cool for 30 then refrigerated. It was perfect! Everyone loved it and I will definitely be making this more often!!!

        Of all the things in your recipe, you don't even mention what type of pan your baking this in. You dont give a size, a type - ie. tradional pyrex glass pie pan, store bought tin foil cheesecake pie pan....many of your viewers may be new at this and you need to oxide ask this necessary in the instructions. That includes ALL equipment like mixers, pans used, bowls and sizes, etc IN THE PREP. List your ingredients, but it's helpful to list any extra to needed to make any recipe. Many beginners get waist deep, to find out they need a mixer, etc. and dont have these... becaause it was not addressed, until you were preparing the cake. Just an idea. It works in our cookbooks effectively. People can decide what to make, based on the equipment necessary to make a dish. If they don't have a mixer, you should explain how to do it by hand, or if the desired effect can even BE created by hand mixing. If not, it would be helpful to state so.

        IlSo essentially, f you're going to share a recipe, please make sure you cover all your basics, because you must consider many viewers of your Pin on Pinterest may be new to cooking and need more directive. Its too bad this recipe did not turn out well for me, and I've used a few different recipes, similar to yours.

        However, I followed your instructions, and I baked on 350 for 30 min and it almost burnt. But, because I tend mine closely, I caught it in time. Also, the cheesecake was flatter than expected, and the sugar was way too sweet. I'd recommend fine tuning the recipe a little, like possibly leaving out the sugar ingredient, and fine tuning the bake time and/or degrees; Give Pinterest viewers a redemption on this potentially awesome recipe.

        Literally the worst recipe I've ever tried in my life. It's true - it comes out way too flat, way too Oreo-heavy, and it doesn't even look good. Not at all like a cheesecake! That is 1.5 hours of my life I'll never get back! DO NOT TRY THIS RECIPE.

        i made this recipe and it was terrible. I put it in for 30 minutes and it was almost burnt. The recipe does have any eggs and is only held together because the sweetened condensed milk was sticky and slightly over cooked. I did put the sugar in too. Over all it didn't taste anything like cheescake and it just treated like sweetened condensed milk. I would not recommend it to anybody.

        Did you actually make this cheesecake? I knew just looking at the recipe that one block of cream cheese was going to make a very flat cake so I added an extra, but the cake was still only an inch thick, so terrible presentation . And I only used a 1/3 c of sugar even though I added a block of cream cheese and it was still very sweet.

        I agree, it came out too flat. I tried the first batch with sugar and it was terrible. The one without was pretty good but it looks so flat and not very nice to present.

        I made this cheesecake today and was so excited. Everything was coming together, the batter tasted great, I couldn't wait to taste it as a whole! However, it cake out dark in color and very flat. Probably an inch thick (if that) I was so bummed. It tasted good, but was more like a cookie bar. Any ideas as to why? I followed the directions exactly how they were written! :(

        Worst "cheesecake" ever. Too sweet and not at all creamy. Don't waste your time or money.

        Your cheesecake looks light colored and about two or three inches thick. I followed the directions to a T and mine is browned and only about an inch thick. Am I missing something here?

        I have never tried any substitutions for the condensed milk. I have seen other recipes that used sour cream instead of condensed milk, so it will probably work.

        Can I use 1 cup sour cream to mix with the cream cheese instead of using 1 can condense milk?

        Trix, I'm sorry you did not like the recipe. The sugar is an optional ingredient. I have updated the instructions to make this more clear to everyone that the cheesecake will be sweet if using the sugar. Thanks for your feedback. I hope you will try the recipe again without the sugar.

        Chris, when the when the cheesecake is cold, the cream cheese in combination with the cold holds it together.

        What holds the filling together. I did not see eggs or gelatin in the recipe.

        Is it just the cold??
