Oreo Cookies & Cream Cheesecake

Wow! KRAFT Philadelphia Cookies & Cream Cheesecake is an all time favour for everyone no matter you are children or adult and this will become a must have at every celebration. It is very easy to make and it does not require any baking, all you need is to mix and pour then refrigerate until set. In the recipe i use two recipes as reference and come up with another version of my own.

Ingredients: (make a 5” size cake)
150g OREO Cream Sandwich cookies, finely crushed
60g Butter, melted
250g Block PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, cube
2 Tablespoons Caster Sugar
120ml Thickened Cream
1½ Teaspoon Gelatine Power
30ml Warm Water
50g TOBLERONE White Chocolate, melted
50g Cadbury White Chocolate, melted
1 Lemon
5 Pieces OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

1. Cut cream cheese into cubes and leave it in a mixing bowl to soften while preparing the cookies.
2. Place OREO cookies in a zip-lock bag and crush it finely with a rolling pin.
3. Pour it in a big bowl and slowly add in the melted butter and stir until it’s well-combined, you might not need all the butter.
4. Wrap a cake ring with aluminum foil to secure the base or you can use a spring form tin.
5. Press the cookies mixture into it and refrigerate in the freeze while you are preparing the cream cheese mixture.
5. Dissolved Gelatine Power in warm water and set aside for later use.
6. Place chocolate in microwave safe bowl and set on medium for 1 minutes then stir thru. Then medium for another 30sec until all the chocolate are melted and smooth.
7. Beat the cream cheese with sugar until smooth then pour in the cream, lemon rind and ½ of the lemon juice and beat till well mixed.
8. Next add in the gelatine and melted chocolate and beat for another minute.
9. Chop the OREO chocolate cookies and stir through the cream cheese mixture and pour over the base.
10. Cover and refrigerate for another 2 hours or overnight.
11. Cut into slices or squares to serve with some strawberries.

The purpose of adding lemon rinds and juice is to enhance the taste of the cheese so that it won’t taste too creamy or sweet.
If you want an Dark Chocolate Cheesecake then you can reply the White chocolate to Dark Chocolate instead.

To eat your cheesecake with strawberries will enable you to have more slices because the sweet and sour taste of strawberries will make your cheesecake taste less fattening.Posted by Picasa


  1. is tis cheesecake very cheesy? any alernative to make it less cheesy or sumthing? thanks! :)

  2. Em..... to me this is not a very very cheese cheesecake, becos of the added oreo cookies and lemon juice. If you are afraid of cheesy...then maybe u can try making sometime sour abit like blueberry or mango or even the lychee cheesecake cake which is more towards the light side. :) HTH

  3. thanks!! will try it out soon!` :)

  7. Errr You can replaced it with yoghurt but the overall texture will be that creamy and fragrant :)
