No-bake Oreo cheesecake tastes as delicious and creamy as authentic cheesecake, but it comes with a crunch and sweetness of Oreo. This ultimate cream dessert is easy to make. Unlike my easy pumpkin and chocolate chip loaf recipe, you don’t need an oven to bake this cheesecake. If this is not the simplest Oreo cheesecake recipe, then I don’t know what is.

Scroll down, and let’s start talking cheesecake.

Crunchy and Fresh No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake Recipe

Do you have a serious obsession with Oreos and cheesecakes? If yes, this recipe is going to be your ultimate favorite thing to bake. This dessert looks as appealing as it tastes.

For preparing this dish, you are required to take the creamy part out of Oreo. The interesting thing about my recipe is that it does not require gelatine. That’s because gelatine can bring down the taste of cheesecake. And honestly, this simple recipe is better off without gelatine.

Let’s talk flavor. This Oreo cheesecake has a silky smooth texture, and it is finger-lickin’ delicious. The Oreo crust and thick cream make this cake a taste that is hard to match.

How To Make No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake?

To start preparing Oreo cheesecake, you need to collect all the ingredients and follow this recipe.

Step One: Make the Crust

You can start the process of making no-bake Oreo cheesecake by creating a biscuit base or crust. For this, you can remove the cream from Oreo cookies. After that, add the biscuits to a food processor.

Melt butter in another pan, add the Oreo cookies, crumble in the butter and mix it until moistened. After that, put parchment paper on the bottom of the pan, fill it with the butter and Oreo crumble mixture. Lastly, press the mixture to form a crust and put it inside the refrigerator for a while so that it can hold a shape.

Step Two: Make the Cake

This step starts by making the cheesecake. You will require a large bowl and a whisk. Add cream cheese to the bowl and whisk it until it gets smooth. After that, add icing sugar and vanilla extract. Mix it well.

In another bowl, you can add sour cream. Mix the cream at low speed and then gradually increase the speed so that the mixture thickens. Add this cream to the cheese mixture and slowly mix them so that they combine perfectly. At last, fold in some crushed Oreos and mix everything.

Step Three: Finish the No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake

Once your crust and cheesecake are ready, it’s time to combine them to make the no-bake Oreo cheesecake. Take out the refrigerated crust and cover it with a thick layer of cheesecake. Don’t forget the corners.

For decoration, you can add small Oreo biscuits to the top, press it a little, and then put it back in the fridge for around 4-5 hours. You can store the leftover Oreo cheesecake in an airtight container. It will stay fresh for about four days.

Key Notes

  • If you don’t want the cheese to form lumps, make sure you start beating it when it’s at room temperature.
  • Try not to compromise with the flavors by picking full-fat sour cream and cream cheese. If you pick the low-fat version, you might not get the authentic taste.
  • When serving the cake, run a knife around the edge. By doing this, you can easily remove the cake without breaking it.
  • When beating the cheesecake mixture, try to make it thick and creamy.

Why is my No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake Not Firm?

Even after refrigerating, if your cake is not firm, that means it needs more time to hold shape. So, instead of panicking, let the cake rest inside the fridge for a couple of more hours.

How Can I Stiffen My Cake?

If your no-bake Oreo cheesecake is not stiff, you can try adding gelatin to it. But if you don’t want gelatin, whisk the cream for more time so that it can get fluffy and refrigerate the cake overnight.

Why is my Cheesecake So Soft?

Oreo cheesecake can get soft because of overmixing. If you have mixed the cream more than the instructed time, it might get too soft. Also, you should avoid using mixing tools like a food processor and blender.

Will my Cheesecake Set If It’s Too Runny?

Runny cheesecake is the result of overmixing. So, if you feel like your cheesecake has turned out to be runny, you should let it sit inside the fridge for a couple of more hours. That’s because it’s the only solution.
