This has been one of the favourites among my friends. I had gone over to a college friend's house to bake and this was among our exploits.

When my friend tasted it he actually punched me in the arm a few times and finally got round his slice of cake and all he could say was "OMG" for a good 5 minutes.

I have made it in many moulds and the picture you see was a special request for Valentine's Day last year from a friend for her boyfriend.

How to Make No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  1. Sprinkle gelatin over room temperature water, heat the water so it's warm then leave to cool.
  2. Place all oreos without the filling in a food processor and pulse till fine. (or you can use a mortar and pestle for real old school, or line your hand with a sandwich bag and crush with fist)
  3. Mix cookie crumbs with melted butter till evenly mixed, then press into the bottom of an 8" diameter round springform pan. Chill.
  4. Beat cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice till smooth. Add in gelatine and beat on low speed till just incorporated.
  5. Using a spatula, fold in the whipped cream. Once evenly mixed, fold in coarsely crushed oreos.
  6. Pour mixture on top of the oreo base and freeze till set, about 4 hours - I usually freeze overnight.

    *1 tbsp gelatin produces a more ice cream-like texture. For a firmer cake, increase up to 2 tbsp gelatin. For the oreos, I sometimes use more cookies.
