Oreo Cheesecake in its classic perfect form with an Oreo crust, crumbs in the batter and cookie pieces throughout. This is an epic cheesecake that any Oreo cookie fan will LOVE.
Oreos are one of our favorite guilty pleasures in the house. I love to bake, I even have my own baked version of these cookies that I love thanks to Thomas Keller and his TKO Cookies which are AMAZING. But sometimes (or in our case, often) you need Oreos. As much as I stay away from prepared products in cooking, when it comes to baking I embrace ingredients that will make the best dessert possible. Rainbow sprinkles? Heck yes. Condensed milk? Double yes! Oreos? Be still my heart.

This Oreo Cheesecake is really a breeze to make, but cheesecakes are generally pretty easy desserts to make even when they look really complicated. I have found that as a general rule there are some rules to follow and you’ll end up with indulgent, rich, delicious cheesecakes with no cracks in them. Just like you love at your favorite restaurant or bakery.
- Prebake the crust, it helps it stay together better.
- Make sure to add a bit of flour, it helps the batter stay firmer and the end results stay nice and dense.
- When you’re done baking turn off the oven and open it a tiny bit to let the heat escape slowly.
- Refrigerate at LEAST 8 hours, you want it fully chilled to serve.
- Even more insurance against cracks, cook the cheesecake in a water bath. When I have an event and I know I need the cheesecake to look absolutely perfect I cook it in a water bath.
- To make a water bath: Wrap the bottom of the pan in a layer of foil to prevent the water from leaking in through the bottom of your springform pan.
- Sit the springform pan in a baking pan larger than it and fill the baking pan with 2-3 inched of water (be careful to stay below the level of the foil and the pan.
- Cook in the pan and when the hour is done remove and let cool in the oven without the pan.
Tools Used in this Recipe:
FoodProcessor: My favorite, even though I own ALL the expensive versions. I use this one 99% of the time.
9″ Springform Pan: I love this one not just because its my favorite color, but also I’ve never had a leak in this pan. EVER.
Stand Mixer: My new love, I just got this mixer about a month ago and I love it because of the pour shield which has saved me from many messes!
Silicone Edge Beater: Make sure you find the size for your particular stand mixer since bowl sizes vary. The thing I love about this is that the edges of the bowl almost never mix in properly with the standard beaters so there is constant scraping of the sides. This eliminates that completely.
