Oreo Cheesecake Recipe

Cheesecake is one of those foods that is so simple to make yet puts a smile on your face with every bite. This Oreo Cheesecake is no different. I got the inspiration for this recipe while grocery shopping. I look at everything in the grocery store as a recipe and as soon as I saw Oreo’s sitting on the shelf the first thing that popped in my head was cheesecake. Naturally!


Whipping up the Oreo Cheesecake was so easy and yes I did snack on a few cookies during the process – don’t judge me! I did have to keep reassuring myself the destruction of the Oreo’s was for a good cause – my belly! By the way, smashing Oreo cookies into itty bitty crumbs is surprisingly therapeutic. Sure you can use a food processor but I prefer my handy dandy meat tenderizer.


Since this was my first time making an Oreo Cheesecake I decided to play it safe and Google it. I found a recipe here and decided to play off of that. It was hard to wait an entire day to try the finished product, but let me tell ya – it was well worth it! You’ll never look at Oreo’s the same after tasting the Oreo Cheesecake. I know I’m crushing Oreo’s and freezing the crumbs from here on out!



Okay, okay – I’ll shut up and give you the recipe 🙂

Oreo Cheesecake
Author: Amber
  • [b]Crust[/b]
  • 22 Oreo cookies, crushed into crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • [b]Filling[/b]
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 15 Oreo cookies, chopped – not crushed
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F;
  2. Combine the melted butter and Oreo Cookie crumbs in a large bowl. I use a spatula to mix mine. Press into the bottom of a 9″ Springform pan.
  3. Bake the crust for 10 minutes.
  4. While the crust is baking, prepare the cheesecake filling. Use the paddle attachment with your stand mixer to whip the cream cheese on medium speed.
  5. Add the sugar and mix to thoroughly combine.
  6. Add the eggs one at a time, continuing to mix, then add the yogurt and vanilla.
  7. Turn the speed up one notch and allow to mix for 2 more minutes. Carefully pour in the chopped Oreo’s and pour the batter in the baked crust. Make sure the filling is even and bake for 40 minutes.
  8. Allow the cake to cool at room temp for 2 hours then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
