Oreo Cheesecake

You guys know that I am mildly obsessed with cheesecake – there’s no doubt that it’s pretty much my absolute fave. From Lemon Cheesecake and Snicker’s Cheesecake to Oreo Cheesecake – I’m fairly convinced I have a cheesecake for just about any occasion.

Last weekend, Eric and I were meandering around the grocery store with my brother, Jared, when we stumbled upon Triple Double Oreos – say what? – apparently I’ve been living under a a very large rock, because I’d never seen them before. Of course we were incredibly intrigued and immediately tossed them into our cart. Now I’m not much of a store bought cookie consumer, but these bad boys looked totally dunkable, which is always something that I can get behind.

By the way, let’s take a moment to discuss the contents of a bachelor brother’s grocery cart. Jared divulged to us that he goes grocery shopping once every three months or so because he works long hours and primarily eats at work. Let me just give ya a little insight into his cart: Mountain Dew, about 4 varieties of juice, 4 boxes of cereal, frozen pizzas, sausage, egg & cheese croissants, ice cream and milk. And the fact that he can eat all this crap and not gain an ounce makes me all kinds of jealous.

Back to the Triple Double Oreos. These things are no joke – they make the Double Stuf Oreos seem pretty mundane. Two layers of filling and three cookies layers – they sound pretty epic, right? Well, personally I could do without the middle cookie layer, if I’m eating them straight from the bag, but I think it comes in handy for where I went next. Since I was kind of enamored with them, I thought I’d bake them into cheesecake bars.

A thick Oreo cookie crust combines with creamy cheesecake filling, studded with chunks of Triple Double Oreos to create a deliciously rich dessert. I think we can all agree this should probably be a once-a-year treat, but whoa baby are they worth it!

Oreo Cheesecake

Yield: 16 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes plus chill time

Ingredients:

For the Crust

24 Oreo cookies (regular variety)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the Cheesecake Filling

12 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs, at room temperature
1/3 cup sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
15 Triple Double Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped (you can you regular as well)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 325°F;. Line an 8x8-inch square baking pan with foil, allowing it to hang over two sides of the pan to create "handles".

2. Prepare the Crust: In the bowl of a food processor, pulse 24 Oreos until they are turned into fine crumbs. Drizzle the melted butter over top and continue to pulse until the butter is evenly distributed and all of the crumbs are moist. Add the cookies crumbs into the prepared baking pan and press into an even layer (I usually use the bottom of a measuring cup for this process). Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes (leave the oven on).

3. While the crust is baking, prepare the cheesecake filling. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. Gradually add the sugar and beat until incorporated.

4. Slowly add the eggs, beating well after each addition, and mix until completely combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the sour cream and vanilla, beating until fully incorporated.

5. Gently fold in the chopped Triple Double Oreos. Pour the batter over the prepared crust, smoothing it into an even layer with a rubber spatula. Bake until the edges are set but the middle still jiggles slightly, about 40 to 50 minutes.

6. Place the pan on a cooling rack and let cool to room temperature, about 2 hours, then cover the pan with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours (or up to 24 hours) before serving.

7. To serve, lift the cheesecake out of the pan using the foil handles. Slice into bars and serve.

Notes:

- If you're feeling fancy, top the cheesecake with a layer of ganache or your favorite chocolate frosting.
- Store covered Oreo Cheesecake in refrigerator for up to 4 days.

    I will never be able to understand the way some men can eat. Three sandwiches for lunch??? Must be nice.

    This cheesecake is almost too good to be true. It’s like you took all the good things in the world and baked them in a pan together!!

      I know! It’s infuriating to watch him eat as I have to track every calorie in My Fitness Pal! Clearly I got the short end of the stick in regards to the metabolism gene – if that even exists. Have a great weekend!

  2. You are out of control. I can quite happily snarf a sleeve of those triple doubles, which is NOT a healthy thing. Also, I am jealous of Jared’s metabolism.

    • Jamie — June 1, 2013 at 10:51 am

      Amber-
      The Oreos are all kinds of good and yes, Jared’s metabolism is definitely something to be jealous of! Have a great weekend!

    These look fabulous! What is the chocolate layer on the top?

    • Jamie — June 1, 2013 at 10:50 am

      Angela-
      I used leftover chocolate frosting, but I would recommend the ganache from this post – it’s amazing! Have a great weekend!

    I have done lots of scratch recipes but never worked with Oreos. To make an Oreo crust do you use just the chocolate wafer and scrape off the filling? Or just drop the entire Oreo into the food processor? The filling seems like enough to hold the crust together but you are adding butter also.

    • Jamie — May 31, 2013 at 11:05 am

      Cheryl-
      You use the whole Oreo for the crust. As I indicated in the ingredient list, I use regular Oreos for the crust since I thought the Triple Double Oreos may have a little too much filling for the crust. I hope this helps. Thanks so much for stopping by.

    So, my brother worked at Kraft for a while and oh my goodness, the varieties of Oreos they have in there is ridiculous! One time he brought home Neopolitan Oreos and I died a little on the inside. Anyways, I’ll definitely be making these for him! They look amazing!

  7. Lisa Cornely — May 31, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    Hey Jamie!
    These Oreo Cheesecake Bars look to die for! I most definitely would want to top them with that divine looking chocolate ganache layer and would love a link to your recipe or a quick little sound bite including the recipe you used. :) I’ve done a few before, but nothing that memorable, so would love to have your personal recommendations! ;)
    Thanks!

  18. Renee @ Awesome on $20 — June 2, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    I haven’t seen these triple doubles of which you speak, but they’re kind of blowing my mind. In regards to the dismissing the middle cookie mention, here’s what I do. When you buy double stuf oreos, twist them apart, two at a time. Eat the empty sides, dunked in milk obviously. Then smoosh the two cream sides together, forming a quad stuf oreo. I was a genius as a teenager. This cheesecake looks epic.

    • Jamie — August 12, 2013 at 9:55 pm

      Renee,

      You are a genius! Thanks for the tip. Have an awesome day and thank you so much for following MBA!

    • Jamie — August 11, 2013 at 8:31 pm

      They are amazing! Definitely give them a try. Thank you so much for following MBA! Have a great day.

      Jamie

  20. J — June 3, 2013 at 9:53 am

    Pro tip: They make Mega Stuf Oreos now, which is more than Double Stuf, and without the middle cookie you were wishing for – and in my opinion, the way they always should have been. Pretty sure you can even look up where to buy them on their website.

    • Jamie — August 12, 2013 at 9:56 pm

      J,

      That’s awesome news. Thank you so much!

    If any one is looking at this thinking about making it…DO IT ALREADY!!!! It is AH-MAZING!!! I have made it twice already and I have heard nothing but forks scraping the plates and rave reviews. It’s too easy to be as good as it is!
    Love your blog and your food!! Thank you so much for a recipe that I will be sure to keep forever!

    Hi I made this over the weekend it was delicious! I was not sure if the oreo biscuits in the uk are the same size as the us ones but it seemed to work out just fine I only had a 9×9 inch tin also but again no probs thanks.
    Yours looked much nicer than mine!
    Thanks Vic

  32. Isabelle Vernon — February 14, 2014 at 12:14 am

    I made this just tonight for my boyfriend for Valentines day. He says it’s delicious, but it’s not quite what i imagined. It didn’t have that creamy texture I love about cheesecakes; it was more…fluffy, almost eggy. I’m a bit sensitive to texture, but it through me off. Your picture makes it looks considerably creamier; can you name anything I might have done wrong?

  33. Erin — February 19, 2014 at 8:42 am

    Is it possible to make this in a spring form pan?
    Thanks!

    –Erin.

  34. Deb — June 21, 2014 at 1:04 pm

    When I saw the picture of this wonderful Oreo dessert I wanted to lick the screen ( I know, too much information). I’m going to make something similar with reduced sugar (diabetic husband) as I don’t have a huge sweet tooth. Even without a word, the picture has said it all! LOL! Thanks, Deb.

    Can I use a cheesecake pan instead of an 8×8 pan? Can’t wait to try it!

    • Jamie — October 27, 2014 at 12:21 pm

      Jennifer-
      A small cheesecake pan will work, but the bars may be a little different thickness and you may need to adjust the baking time. I hope this helps.

  38. MC — January 9, 2015 at 2:08 pm

    Hi Jamie,
    oh my god these look AMAZING!!!!
    Just one question…when would be the best time to add the ganache? After the cheesecake reaches room temperature or after it has been refridgerated??
    Thanks,
    MC

    • Jamie — January 11, 2015 at 10:28 am

      MC-
      I would pour on the ganache before refrigerating. I hope this helps.
