Kim's 'to die for' Oreo Cheesecake

 When I lived in China, Kim - the very talented Grade 2 teacher, used to make this oreo cheesecake for any special occasion.  In our three years there, Kim's oreo cheesecake became famous.  Seriously, nothing so wonderful has ever passed your lips.  Everytime I asked her how she made it, being a little into dabbling in the kitchen myself, Kim would reply that it was so easy, but would never give the recipe.  However, somehow amidst all the hasty goodbyes and last minute packing during the last week of our time in China, just before Kim and and I headed off in opposite directions to pastures new, she wrote out her recipe and stuck it in my pigeon-hole in the office.

I found the recipe last weekend while looking for something completely different, and decided to give it a try.  OH MY GOD!  Is about all I can say.  It came out just like Kim's, was absolutely heavenly, and was just as easy to make as she told me.  Now, I hope that Kim won't send in an assassin to kill me as I'm putting her recipe on here, but it is really too good not to share.  So, here it is:

You need:  3 rolls oreo biscuits or similar;  3 tablespoons butter;  3 packages cream cheese (Philadelphia) or a 750ml container of cream cheese;  3/4 cup sugar; 1 and a half teaspoons of vanilla essence;  3 eggs

This is what you do: 

1.  Crush the cookies finely

2.  Add the melted butter

3.  Press the cookie/butter mixture down firmly in a springform pan, and then set this aside.

4.  Grab a mixing bowl and mix the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.

5.  Add the vanilla and mix it in.

6.  Add the eggs, mixing well after each egg is added.

7.  Scrape the sides of the bowl, pour into the crust.

8.  Bake in the oven on about 180 degrees Celsius for an hour, until you touch it and it feels firm.

9.  Voila!  It's baked!

10.  Add a chocolate fudge topping if you wish!

Chocolate Fudge Topping

You need:  2 slabs plain chocolate;  1/4 cup heavy whipping cream;  1 tablespoon water;  1 tablespoon butter

What you do:  Melt all the above ingredients on a very low heat, stirring often.  Put on cakes, the baked oreo cheesecake, ice cream, fruit dips, brownies etc.

Um, delicious, and er, for those watching your weight, this is the lo-cal version.  Oops, why is my nose growing so long?

Enjoy!

Oreos are the number one selling cookie in the U.S., so this recipe should surely be popular.

I love cheesecake and that looks awesome. I can't wait to try it. But, do you know how many oreos that is? In the U.S. they are not sold on rolls.

Thanks

Hi Cindy,

I'm a sucker for cheesecake (and lemon meringue pie), and as all the blondes, brunettes and re-heads in my life at the moment are combined into one small furry friend who's a hopeless cook this recipe will be of great use to me.(And bugger the diet)

Cheers,

TOF.

Sheila, and as I've shown, if you can't get oreos it's still delicious using other chocolate cookies.

Jim, it will be 2-3 packets of oreos depending on the size of the packet.

TOF, exactly, bugger the diet!
