No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

Cooking is both addictive and therapeutic. Even though looking after two kids can get crazy on some days, I love using some days to make or cook things that are not on my every day menu.

After the success of my no bake Nutella cheesecake, I decided to try and come out with my own no bake recipe. First up, no bake Oreo cheesecake.

Ingredients:
7 digestive biscuits
24 Oreo cookies
500g cream cheese (at room temperature)
125g unsalted butter (soft)
1/4 cup icing sugar

Method:

20140808-184640.jpg Put the smashed digestive biscuits, cookies and butter into a mixer and mix them together until they are thoroughly and evenly mixed.

20140808-184722.jpg Pour the mixture into an 8 inch round springform baking tin. Press the mixture into the base of the baking tin either using your hands or the back of a spoon. Place in the fridge to chill.

20140808-185943.jpg Cover the baking tin with cling wrap and put the cheesecake into the fridge to chill for at least 4 hours.

20140808-191300.jpg I cut my no bake Oreo cheesecake into 16 slices, so I cut the Oreo cookies into quarters and decorated the cake.
