What will I need to make this cheesecake?

  • Oreos: This is just regular Oreos. Do not use double stuffed Oreos for your cheesecake. Even though I prefer the double stuffed Oreos for snacking and dunking in milk, they are far too sweet and have too much filling for this recipe. You’ll need a total of 39 Oreos, plus more for topping, so I suggest purchasing the family sized package of Oreos. I used all but two Oreos from that package after I was finished making the cheesecake and decorating it.
  • Whipped topping: This is a product like Cool Whip.
  • Sour cream: We use sour cream in our baked cheesecake too. It gives the cheesecake the classic tangy flavor that we all know and love from cheesecakes.
  • Granulated sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Salt

How to Make an Oreo No Bake Cheesecake

Make the Oreo crust.

  • Place Oreos in a food processor and pulse until you have fine crumbs.
  • Stir together crust ingredients and firmly press into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Use a measuring cup to easily press down the crumbs for this step.
  • Refrigerate the crust until firm (about 10 minutes).

Make the filling.

  • Using a hand mixer, whip together softened cream cheese, sour cream, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and salt until smooth.
  • Stir in the whipped topping until combined.
  • Fold in chopped Oreos.

Fill and chill.

  • Pour filling over crust and chill in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours (8-12 hours is ideal).
  • Top with additional Oreos if desired and serve.

Decorate.

For my decoration, I piped whipped topping using a piping bag and 1M tip. I cut my Oreos into quarters and crumbled crushed Oreo over the top.

Can you make a cheesecake without a springform pan?

Although springform pans are meant for removing delicate cheesecakes easily, you can still make this cheesecake without one.

Use a 9″ round cake pan, but line it first with parchment paper so that you can easily remove the cheesecake for slicing.

Why is my cheesecake lumpy?

In order to have or create the smoothest cheesecake texture possible, make sure that your cream cheese has completely softened to room temperature. Because we are making a no-bake dish and it needs to be chilled in the refrigerator, any lumps present will only firm up while the cheesecake is cooling. This will make them more prominent and noticeable.

Even when adequately softened, it is still possible that the cream cheese will have lumps in it. If you see any while mixing, continue beating the cream cheese mixture until no lumps remain.
