No Bake Cookies and Cream Cheesecake

No-Bake Oreo Cheesecakes

by Megan on June 7, 2012

My friend’s son just turned 21 not long ago, and he asked me if I would make him a cheesecake for his birthday. How can I say no to that kind of request?

So when he asked if I could make a cookies and cream cheesecake, I started looking for recipes. I couldn’t decide between a baked cheesecake, or this No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake.,  I hankered back and forth and then, when I  saw my friend Barbara’s adapted recipe Robin Eggs No Bake Cheesecake,  I knew which direction I was headed!

These were fast and easy to make, no baking required, and produced a creamy delicious cheesecake.  A perfect dessert for those hot days of Summer when you want a treat, but don’t want to turn on the oven.

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

Slightly adapted from The Bakers Royal and Barbra Bakes.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup finely crushed graham crackers (about 6 graham crackers)
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup heavy cream
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup crushed Oreos

 

  1.  Combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar in a small bowl.   Add melted butter and blend until combined.  Press heaping tablespoon into each cup of a mini cheesecake pan or press all into an 8″ springform pan.  Set aside.
  2. Beat heavy cream until medium peaks form. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, salt, vanilla,  until smooth (approximately 3-5 mins). Add  cream cheese mixture to heavy cream and beat until incorporated. Gently fold in Oreo cookies.
  4. Fill  pan with a slight mound at the center, as the cheesecake will sink n at the center. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours to set or overnight for best results.
  5. Serve with whipping cream and garnish with mini Oreos
  6. Enjoy!

The fact that these are soo easy to make and looks so delicious, means that these will be happening often – - in fact, I may have to test them tonight ;)

It’s always nice to have someone to bake for. So sweet that he asked. They look scrumptious. I like how you dressed them up. 5 weeks!
