The Best Oreo Cheesecake is definitely one of our faves requiring just a few simple ingredients. It’s a round cake lined with oreos on the outside and topped with oreo crumbs and fresh raspberries. So delicious and beautiful at the same time…
This is a great dessert for everyday indulgences, and is festive enough for special occasions likes birthday parties, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day etc. etc. I mean, who wouldn’t like to have a cheesecake like this on their special day?
This is a baked recipe, so you’ll need a 9-inch or 10-inch springform pan like this one. Start by lining it with full size Oreos or any cookies and cream cookies will do.
Then you make the cheesecake in a mixing bowl by combining cream cheese, sugar, eggs, vanilla and sour cream. If you want to save on calories, it’s fine to use light cream cheese and light sour cream. It’ll still taste fabulous!
It’s really easy from now on. Simply a matter of baking for 25 minutes in the oven until it’s golden and fluffy. Once it’s cooled down, dust the to with some oreo crumbs and decorate with fresh raspberries for a burst of color.
You can use frozen raspberries that have thawed in a pinch. They taste great, ut just don’t stand to attention the same way as fresh ones.
There’s enough to serve 6-8 people easily (unless everyone wants a second serving!). You can cut pieces right off the springform pan bottom, so there’s no need to unmold the cake.
It’s also a complete dessert as is — no need to add ice cream or garnishes. Watch our quick tutorial to see how to make it:
