No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

I haven't been baking or making any kind of dessert for a long time... I was quite busy cleaning my house and bedroom for Chinese New Year! And my mother wouldn't let me use the kitchen as I would mess up her things... ha ha ha... Oh yes, my oven has broken down so I decided to make something that doesn't require the oven... cheesecake seems perfect!



No Bake Oreo Cheesecake
(makes 8" cheesecake)

Ingredients - Base:
20 oreos
70g butter (melted)

Ingredients - Filling:
14 oreos
8g gelatin crystals
4 Tbsp water
450g cream cheese (softened)
50g sugar
250g whipping cream

Optional: I used the leftover oreos for the decoration on top of the cheesecake.

Method - Base:
Preparation: Line the base of a 8" cake pan.
  1. Using a ziploc bag and a rolling pin, crush the oreos. 
  2. Mix the crushed oreos and melted butter together until it reaches the wet sand consistency.
  3. With the back of a spoon, press the mixture evenly over the base of the prepared cake tin and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Method - Filling:
  1. Using the same ziploc bag and rolling pin, crush the oreos.
  2. Sprinkle the gelatine into the water and set aside.
  3. Beat together the cream cheese, sugar and whipping cream until smooth and creamy.
  4. Put the gelatine mixture over some hot water and stir until dissolved. Stir into the cheesecake filling.
  5. Fold in the crushed oreos.
  6. Pour the cheesecake filling into the prepared tin and drop the cheesecake a few times so there are no air bubbles trapped inside.
  7. Decorate the cheesecake with the remaining oreos. Chill for at least 4 hours or until set.
This cheesecake is very oreo-y and it's not too sweet because I have reduced the amount of sugar and oreos. You're welcome to add more oreos or sugar.
