If I am being entirely honest, I never used to be a big fan of cheesecake. But this was Oreo cheesecake recipe was the one that converted me! Now, I just can’t get enough of making cheesecakes because they are just SO much easier to make then normal cakes. Since I have developed a newfound love in cheesecakes there is so many cheesecake recipes that I have created. From my Terry’s chocolate orange cheesecake to my white chocolate & raspberry cheesecake to my mint aero cheesecake. AND I have no plans on stopping any time soon!
So now to talk about the star of the show. OREOS! Who doesn’t love them? The chocolate biscuit with their creamy filling just tastes SO good! The best thing about this recipe is that it’s NO BAKE! Yes, you don’t need to bake it and it still tastes absolutely gorgeous! However, as with every Oreo recipe you can just as easily replace the Oreos with cookies and cream biscuits. This no bake cheesecake will still taste amazing! I have made this Oreo cheesecake recipe so many times. Out of all of my cheesecake recipes this is definitely the favourite! A lot of the times I have substituted the Oreos with cookie and cream biscuits. It still tastes lush. So, if you’re looking for a dessert to make on a budget, this would work for you.
So, the main ingredient in every cheesecake is…yep you guessed it…the cream cheese. Now, I remember when I first started making cheesecakes, I could never find any cream cheese in the major supermarkets. I got so agitated thinking that it was an ingredient that just wasn’t available in the UK. Turns out in the UK cream cheese is actually called soft cheese. I usually use Philadelphia; however, I have tried Aldi and Tesco branded soft cheese with similar results.
Recently it came to my notice that it turns out Elmlea is NOT actual cream. If you don’t know what Elmlea is then this is irrelevant. But I feel like a lot of people are misled into thinking that it is double cream (I was one of them), but it is not. It is actually an alternative to double cream. I have always wondered why it tasted weird and it is always so much harder to whip up than other cream. It does work as a substitute of course, and the benefit of using Elmlea is that it does have a significantly longer shelf-life than real double cream. However, I am going to stick to using double cream from now on.
Any decoration that I use in any of my cheesecake recipes is obviously optional. That is why I like to mix up the way I decorate my cakes. Depends on how I feel that day. I kept the decoration of this Oreo cheesecake recipe extremely simple with a simple dusting of Oreo crumbs. You can choose to add whipped cream or ganache or anything you like! You can always check out my other cheesecake recipes for more decoration inspirations.
All of my cheesecakes are made in 8-inch (20cm) springform pans. Most recipes online as well also utilise 8-inch pans as well, so they usually are your best bet if you make lots of cheesecakes. Although, if you make lots of cheesecakes you would probably have figured that out yourself by now.
So, in terms of how many people this would serve it depends on how big you like to cut your slices. In my family we usually tend to cut them quite thin, because the cheesecake can be quite filling at times. I realise most people probably would have larger slices though. I would probably make about 10 slices, but if you prefer bigger slices than you could also cut into 8 slices.
If I am planning on making cheesecake, I always like to plan it out. The main reason being is that I never actually have the ingredients, such as the cream cheese and double cream, due to their short shelf lives. I only buy them when I know I am going to use them. So, I usually know when I intend to make a cheesecake. This allows me to make the cheesecake the night before and leave it to set in the refrigerator overnight. However, if you are short on time then you can leave it to set for less time, but at least allow for a minimum of 4 hours.
This no bake Oreo cheesecake recipe is the perfect no bake dessert for any occasion.
