What You’ll Need

Ingredients for Oreo Cheesecake: heavy cream, cream cheese, white chocolate melting wafers, sugar, vanilla, eggs, sour cream, butter, and Oreo cookies.

Ingredient Notes

  • Cream cheese- Use full-fat cream cheese to get a rich and creamy texture for this cheesecake.
  • Sour cream- This ingredient adds a deliciously tangy flavor to the cake.
  • Eggs- Use room temperature eggs and egg yolk. These will give the cheesecake a thick, smooth texture and help the ingredients emulsify.
  • White chocolate melting wafers- These will be melted into ganache. You can also use a block of white chocolate finely chopped.
  • Heavy cream- This adds richness to the ganache.

Add-ins and Substitutions

  • Substitute other Oreos- You can also use mint Oreos, peanut butter Oreos, or gluten-free Oreos to change up the flavor or make it gluten-free.
  • Make it lighter- To make a lighter version of this cheesecake, you can use Half & Half for the heavy cream and low-fat cream cheese.
  • Add fruit- Pair the chocolaty flavor of this Oreo Cheesecake with some lime zest, lemon zest, or orange zest, for a delicious flavor combination.
  • Use a different ganache- Instead of white chocolate, make this with milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, mint chocolate, or dark chocolate.

How to Make Oreo Cheesecake

  • Crumble the Oreos. Place 35 whole Oreos in a food processor and pulse on high speed until they are down to a fine crumble.
  • Add the butter. Pour the melted butter into the food processor as you continue to pulse the cookie crumbs, evenly mixing them together.

  • Form the crust. Dump the Oreo crumb mixture into a 9-inch springform pan and then firmly press the crust to the bottom and sides of the pan using a measuring cup. 
  • Bake. Then, set the crust by baking it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 minutes.

  • Mix the cream cheese and sugar. While the crust is setting, place the room temperature cream cheese and granulated sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. With the paddle attachment, beat them together on high speed for about 5 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl every other minute to avoid clumps.
  • Add the vanilla and sour cream. Now add in the sour cream and vanilla extract, and mix on high speed for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the eggs. Bring the speed down to low and add 3 eggs and 1 egg yolk (one at a time). Then scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Chop the Oreos and add to the batter. Now roughly chop 12 Oreos and add it to the cheesecake batter. Mix on low-speed until combined. Don’t overmix.

Pro Tip: A good way to know when to add each egg is when you no longer see yellow streaks from the yolk.

  • Bake the cheesecake. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the cheesecake filling into the Oreo crust and place it on the center rack. Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Then, turn off the oven and let the cheesecake rest inside until completely cool. Do not open the oven door before then.
  • Let the cheesecake set. Once it has cooled to room temperature, refrigerate the Oreo cheesecake for 3-4 hours.

  • Decorate. You can sprinkle Oreo crumbs on top of the ganache, then chill. With the chilled ganache, you can now add other decorations, like piped heavy whipping cream and Oreo halves. Then serve and enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  • Let the cheesecake rest and cool- Do not open the oven door for a few hours because this will suddenly change the temperature, causing the cheesecake to crack.
  • Don’t overmix the batter- Mix the batter for the cheesecake on a low speed to avoid overmixing.
  • Let the ganache cool before adding it- You don’t want the hot ganache to melt the cheesecake, so let it thicken and cool to the point where it is still able to easily be drizzled.
  • Chill it before decorating- Chill the cheesecake to solidify the ganache before adding your Oreos and whipped cream. Otherwise they will sink in.
