You Need To Experience Oreogasm Cheesecake

Delish UK logo Delish UK 5 days ago Lindsay Funston

Cheesecake is our number one, and Oreos are one of our favourite biscuits, so you can only imagine how deadly this combination is for us. Folding Oreos into the batter turns it a speckly grey colour; if you want the cheesecake to be a more classic colour, coarsely chop the Oreos and gently fold in (the finer the crumb, the darker the batter will turn). Adding just a couple tablespoons of flour to the batter will ensure it holds together.

You can totally skip a water bath for this — you're decorating the top, so even if it cracks it'll just be our little secret :)

Add salt and stir until crumbs are completely coated and moist. Press Oreo mixture into pan and 1/3 of the way up the sides, packing tightly.

  4. Remove foil and refrigerate cheesecake at least 5 hours and up to overnight.
