Step by Step Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 F and line a square 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper. Make sure the paper slightly overhangs on the sides. This will allow you to easily remove the cheesecake from the pan.

Making the Crust

In a medium sized bowl mix the oreo baking crumbs and melted butter together until well combined. The mixture will have the texture of wet sand.

Add the crumb mixture into your lined baking pan and using your hands or bottom of a measuring cup press and smooth the crumbs together evenly over the bottom of the pan.

MAKING THE Oreo CHEESECAKE BATTER

Place oreos in a zip lock bag and crush into medium sized chunks. Set aside.

Using a stand mixer or hand held mixing beat cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth, this takes about 4 minutes.

Add in the sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla extract. Mix on medium speed until well combined. Scraping down the bowl as needed.

Add in the two eggs one at a time, mix just until combined on a low speed.

Bake cheesecake for 35 minutes or until edges are stiff and the middle is just a little jiggly.

Remove pan from the oven and let fully cool to room temperature.

Once at room temperature, move the cheesecake into the fridge. Let chill in the fridge for at least 6 hours or over night.

SERVING THE CHEESECAKE BARS

To serve, remove the chilled cheesecake from the fridge. Gently lift it from the pan using the overhanging parchment. Use a sharp knife to slice, be sure to wipe down the knife after each cut to get a clean cut.

STORING THE CHEESECAKE

Cheesecake should be stored in the fridge. The cheesecake will stay good up to three days after baking.

Why Do I Need to Use Room Temperature Ingredients?

Room temperature ingredients are key to making a cheesecake. Room temperature eggs, cream cheese, and heavy cream allow them to be broken down easier in the batter and needs less mixing. Over mixing will cause a tougher cheesecake.
