Oreo cheesecake is baked with a crunchy Oreo base and creamy Oreo topping

Method

1. For the base: Preheat the oven to 170C/150C fan/gas 3.

2. Put the Oreos into a plastic freezer bag and bash with a rolling pin until they resemble breadcrumbs. Tip the bashed cookies into a bowl. Stir in the melted butter and then press the mixture down firmly into a 20cm springform cake tin.

3. Bake for 15 minutes just to harden the crumbs slightly and then leave to cool.

4. For the topping: Beat the cream cheese, vanilla extract, sugar and egg yolks together in a bowl, set the egg whites aside. Add the soured cream and beat again. Crumble in the Oreo cookies and stir to combine. Set aside.

5. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks when the whisk is removed from the bowl.

6. Fold the egg whites into the cheese mixture with a large metal spoon, taking care not to knock out the air from the egg whites.

7. Pour the mixture over the cooled base and then bake for 1 hour or until firm but spongy to the touch. Don’t be tempted to open the oven door, this may cause the cheesecake to cave in.

8. Once the cake is golden-brown, turn off the oven. Open the oven door and leave the cake to sit in the oven for a further hour. Remove from the oven and cool completely for 2-3hrs before serving.

This was actually very sickening I was very disappointed with it thought it was going to be much nicer but did like the oreo base Smile

Not impressed. Really does have the consistency of a fluffy cake....which is gross in terms of a cheesecake. Im forcing my way through purely because i can't bring myself to throw away so much food. Perhaps would have been tastier without the egg whites added. The oreo base is nice....it tastes like oreos :-/

Made this cheesecake last Sunday, followed the receipe to the letter, not impressed, it didn't taste or look like a cheesecake more like a cake or sorts. Not nice at all.

Looking forward to trying this at the weekend. Is it a cheesecake though. Commets on TV said it was almost cake like. I guess 105 mins in the oven will do that. And give it that dark brown top. that didn't look the best IMHO.
