Oreo Cheesecake

The week before we started packing up to move house, I was trying to clear the fridge. DH had bought a block of cream cheese that I had left sitting in the fridge for quite a while. I finally decided to put on my baking hat and treat the family to an oreo cheesecake.

I also got the kids to help. Giving them something to do keeps them out of trouble for a while :p

This was really yummy. Fattening, not healthy but sure yummy. Here is the recipe:

  • 18 Oreos. Crushed it with a blender
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 blockes of 250g cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 (14 oz) can condensed milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • Juice from 1 1/2 lemon
  • Mix in the butter with the crushed Oreos. Press into a 9 inch spring-form pan.
  • Cream together the softened cream cheese with the 2 eggs and condensed milk.
  • Add in the vanilla and lemon juice.
  • Sprinkle more crushed Oreos on top of the batter or put broken Oreo pieces. That's up to you.
  • Bake 30-45 minutes at about 220 degrees Fahrenheit. Watch the cake so it doesn't over bake. You don't want it to crack at the top.
  • Take it out of the oven and let it cool before putting in the refrigerator to chill.
