No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

This is such an easy dessert to put together. I hesitate to even call it a cheesecake. It is so light & bordering on fluffy, definitely not the thick, dense dessert that comes to mind when you think of cheesecake.

 

Oreo Cheesecake

 

60 Oreo cookies

1 1/2 sticks of butter, softened

2 packs unflavored gelatin

1/4 cup cold water

16 oz cream cheese, softened

1 cup sugar

1 cup milk

2 cups heavy whipping cream

1/4 cup sugar

 

Crush 36 Oreos to fine crumbs. I use a food processor. Combine with butter. Press evenly in a 9×13 pan. I use a small piece of waxed paper for easier spreading & pressing.

Soften gelatin in water. Heat in a small pan over low hear until dissolved.

Using an electric mixer, combine cream cheese & 1 cup sugar. Slowly add milk & gelatin, mixing until smooth.

Crush 24 Oreos & set aside. These can be fine or chunky, it is completely up to you.

Whip heavy cream & 1/4 cup sugar until stiff peaks form. Fold into cream cheese mixture.

Spread half of the cheese mixture on crust. Sprinkle evenly with 2/3 of the crushed Oreos. Spread the remaining half of cream cheese & sprinkle with remaining Oreos.

Cover & chill for at least 2 hours.
