Oreo cheesecake recipe

End of exams = time for a celebratory cake in our house, and my youngest asked me to make my no bake Oreo cheesecake for him. Having posted this picture on my social media this evening, I have had lots of requests for the recipe, so here it is...

22 Oreos
100g melted butter
1tbsp caster sugar

450g full fat cream cheese
475ml double cream
35gm icing sugar
200g caster sugar
12 chopped oreos


Whizz the 22 Oreos for the base in a food processor until they are fine crumbs
Stir in the melted butter
Press into a lined spring-form (or you won't get it out) baking tin
Refrigerate the base for 30 mins

Roughly chop the 12 Oreos used in the filling with a knife
Gently beat the cream cheese and add in the icing sugar and caster sugar
Whip the double cream
Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese and fold in the chopped Oreos
Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm

Before serving decorate with whole and broken Oreos and Oreo crumbs.
