Yesterday happened to be Father's Day, and after going through tons of different recipes with Talon on what he wanted for dessert, he finally decided.
A friend of mine had given me a no-bake cheesecake recipe and so I vamped it up with Oreos. One of (if not the best) the yummiest packaged cookies out there.
A few friends asked for the recipe, and so, I like to help a friend (or a few) out. Here you go. Not to mention I need to keep this on file because Talon has requested this at least once a month.
This recipe is easy, fast and you can eat it right away if you'd like. Although, I prefer letting it set a few hours to over-night so it's set a little better. But, feel free to dive right in.
Oreo Cheesecake (No-bake)
1 package of Double Stuff Oreos
2tbsp butter (melted)
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 8oz package of Cream Cheese
1 cup Powdered Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
**Take out Cream Cheese so it can soften until ready to use.
First start with the crust:
Pulse 20 Oreos in food processor until cookies are in a crumbly state. (Leave in the filling)
In a bowl mix the crumbly state cookies with 2 tbsp of melted butter until well mixed.
Spray a pie dish/tin with some cooking spray.
Pour all crumbs into the dish, spread out and flatten nicely up to the edges. You'll have a nice thick crust. Place in freezer to help harden until you're ready to pour in the cheesecake mixture.
Chop up remaining cookies (10) into bigger pieces. -Set aside.
Whip up the Heavy Whipping cream (1 cup although I add a little more) until you can move the bowl around and not have the whipped cream slide all over the place. If in doubt, whip a little more. You'll be able to form some peaks with it. -Set aside.
In separate bowl, whip up Cream cheese, then add the powdered sugar a little bit at a time. (This helps so the powdered sugar doesn't go flying all over the place.) Add vanilla. Blend well. Fold in whipping cream until it's well mixed. You'll be able to tell with the different mixtures if it's well blended or not. Add in chopped Oreos until well blended.
Pour on top of crust and spread evenly. Cover with tin foil and place in fridge until ready to eat. Feel free to lick the spoon clean. You'll be happy you did.
Here are a few pictures, although, keep in mind they were taken with my iphone. And I am not a photographer. haha
Even Emery was/is a huge fan! She asked for seconds. She's definitely our daughter.
I hope y'all enjoy this as much as we did.
And yes, I know. I need to blog more often. Jumping right on that.
Peace and love baby.
