You know what? I’m not that much of a fan of oreos. I like them, but I’ve never get why people go so crazy about them (then again, there’s a lot of things I don’t understand why people go crazy about but I’ll tell you about that another time); until one day I decided to order a gigantic piece of Oreo cake at Second Cup.
Now, I guess you all see what kind of cake that is; the one with multiple layers of cake and cream. Well, in France, that’s not something we see very often. Probably because we invented croissant and macarons, but anyway. I tasted that cake, and I have wanted more since then. But this kind of cake is a bit too long to make very often so I needed a recipe a little quicker to make. Then came the No Baking Oreo Cheesecake. Hell to the yes! I was inspired by Gemma Stafford ‘s recipe. I changed the quantities (and decide not to do a chocolat ganache as well) a little because I wanted a smaller cheesecake I could eat on my own (although I could have eaten the whole thing anyway). And it is heavenly good, I much prefer that recipe to the actual Orea Cake I first tasted. I will most definitely adapt that recipe many time from now on.
For this recipe you will need:
OOOOOOO●O12-14 oreos (eat the rest of them while baking)
OOOOOOO●O2 tablespoon of melted butter
OOOOOOO●O100g of cream cheese (room temperature)
OOOOOOO●O1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
OOOOOOO●O1/4 of a cup of ice sugar
OOOOOOO●O250ml of whipped cream
OOOOOOO●O+ of course a baking dish of your choice. Not too big, but
OOOOOOO●O not to little as well.
(I used a glace on the picture, but the main dish I used is about 20/25cm long for 15cm wide, same for deep)
OOOStart by crushing 10 oreos until you have a very fine powder. You can either do it by hands of use a food processor. Add the melted butter to it and mix until the whole powder is covered in butter. Press it into your dish and put it in the fridge while you start working of the filling.
OOOIn a bowl, whip your cream cheese, vanilla extract and sugar together until it is perfectly smooth (it could take 3-5mins). Add your cream and keep whipping until it doubles size. Once your done, crushed some more 2-3 oreos and add them the cream mixture. Add the filling on top of the crust, crush the remaining oreos on top of it and put it on the fridge for at least 6 hours (over night would be best) until serving. You could also put it in the freezer to have an ice cream consistancy.
All you have to do now is enjoy your little treat.
