Recipe by

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

  • 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.
