My Favorite Oreo Cookie Cheesecake

Sharing is caring!

My Favorite Oreo Cookie Cheesecake, cookies and cream, yum! What’s not to love? I know, this is nothing new to the culinary world. But…. this is too good not to share.

As I was going through some notebooks full of old recipes, I came across this beauty. A rich and creamy New York style cheesecake loaded with big chunks of Oreo Cookies.

I found this recipe many moons ago in a Sunset magazine. The date on the page is 1987. Yep, 1987, that’s not a typo.

Cookies and cream were all the rage back then and still are to this day.

This Cake uses an entire 1 1/2 pound package of Oreo cookies. Half for the crust and the other half broken up and cooked into the filling.

It is absolutely decadent and worth every calorie. Hey, I just read an article today that said chocolate cake for breakfast is good for you. I think this one counts, right?

Anyway, it doesn’t matter if you have cake for dessert or breakfast, just eat cake!

  • Pour 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture into the chilled crust. Break the remaining cookies in half and scatter over cream cheese mixture, overlapping if necessary to use up all of the cookies. Pour remaining cream cheese mixture over cookies.

  • Remove from oven and cool on a rack. cover and chill and until cold. at least 4 hours. Overnight is better.

    I have made cheesecake recipes before and this one was just a little different. My grandson wanted an Oreo Cheesecake for his birthday. I made this a few days prior and had taste tester at my daughters work. They all loved it and one of her friends asked for the recipe. It was a hit. I am making another one in time for the grandsons birthday. I’m sure he’ll love it!

    I have the original recipe, too! It is a family favorite. So glad that you were able to share it. We now use the Doublestuff Oreo cookies in place of the original ones. Even more yumminess! We do end up buying two packages to make up for the difference in weight between the original size and the Doublestuff size. I would love to show my copy, but your site doesn’t allow it.

    OMG! A copy of the original recipe! I was looking for mine and couldn’t find it. I do have the one I typed from it to share with family but I was looking for the original. This is in the top 3 cheesecakes I make for family and friends and it has been a holiday treat and birthday cake substitute since it appeared in Sunset. Thanks for posting it.
