Oreo Cheese Cake

Who wouldn’t love Oreos? Who wouldn’t love Cheese? And who wouldn’t love cakes? Yes, I gathered all my courage and ventured this no-bake eggless Oreo cheese cake last week. I was not able to find unsalted cream cheese in Chennai and so had to prepare it at home as we don’t prefer salted desserts. Most recipes online call for graham crackers for the crust and I replaced it with locally available mc vites digestive biscuits. Though this was my second attempt of cheese cake, this time I got to serve a larger crowd and they all thoroughly enjoyed the melt in mouth dessert.

Ingredients
  1. For Crust
  2. ---------------
  3. 1. Digestive biscuits - 15
  4. 2. Unsalted butter - 3 tbsp
  5. 3. Brown sugar - 5 tbsp
  6. For Filling
  7. ---------------
  8. 1. Heavy cream - 300 ml
  9. 2. Cream cheese - 300 g
  10. 3. Powdered white sugar - 7 to 10 tbsp (as per taste)
  11. 4. Salt - 1/2 tsp
  12. 5. Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
  13. 6. Oreo biscuits - 5 ( few more optional for garnishing)
Instructions
  1. Add the digestive biscuits and brown sugar in a mixer jar and pulse until the biscuits are crushed well. Pour it into the springform pan you would use for cheese cake add drizzle melted butter over it; mix well with a spatula, spread evenly and press to form the crust. Set it in fridge until you prepare the filling.
  2. Now whip the chilled cream well in a bowl until it forms firm peaks. Keep aside.
  3. In another bowl take cream cheese, sugar, vanilla essence, salt and beat until it is smooth. You can also use mixer for this but I did it with hands.
  4. Now pour the cheese mix into the whipped cream and mix well.
  5. Finally crush the Oreos with hands and fold them gently into the cream cheese mixture.
  6. Get the springform pan from fridge and pour into it the cheese filling, gently tap to spread it evenly and refrigerate for at least 5 hours. Longer the better.
Notes
  1. I did not have springform pan and so used a round plastic box which wasn't photogenic at all and so I used paper cups to make one small portion for photos. It is a good idea to use paper cups and tear them off while serving, it gives nice individual serving shapes. Actually I forgot to set aside some crust mix for this small serving and did a small batch using Oreos itself which is why the photo shows Oreo crust which tasted wow!
  2. Tips
  3. -------
  4. I would recommend using a springform pan for making cheese cake, otherwise you'll end up spoiling the shape of cake wedges or at least the first wedge would be messy. Unlike baked cakes, you can't topple these you see.
