Cookies ‘N Cream Cheesecake

A cheesecake that's likely to become one of your new favorite desserts! It's perfectly rich and creamy and it's brimming with plenty of chocolatey Oreo cookies. This ones a showstopper that's worthy of any celebration!
Servings: 14
Prep30 minutes
Cook1 hour 10 minutes
Cool7 hours
Ready in: 8 hours 40 minutes



  • 20 Oreo cookies (regular)
  • 5 Tbsp butter, melted



  • For the crust: Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). 
  • Place a 9-inch springform in the center of a large sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil (about 18 by 18-inches). Carefully wrap foil around sides of cheesecake pan*, spray inside with non-stick spray.
  • In a food processor or blender, pulse 20 Oreos to fine crumbs. In a medium mixing bowl stir together the Oreo crumbs and melted butter until well combined. 
  • Press mixture into an even layer in bottom of prepared springform pan. Bake in preheated oven 9 - 10 minutes then allow to cool as you prepare the filling.
  • For the filling: In a mixing bowl, using a hand-held electric mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth and creamy.
  • Add in the sour cream or yogurt and the vanilla and mix well. Add eggs one at a time and mix on low speed just until combined. 
  • Gently fold in 13 crumbled Oreo cookies. Do not over-mix. Pour the filling into the cooled crust. 
  • Place the springform pan into a large roasting pan and place in the oven. Fill the roasting pan up with hot water until the water level comes about halfway up the outside of the cheesecake pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven 50 - 60 minutes, or until the center is almost set. Turn the oven off and open the door slightly. Let the cheesecake rest in the oven for 1 hour. 
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely at room temperature. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. 
  • Loosen the cheesecake from the rim of the pan and remove the rim. Top with whipped cream, crumble remaining 5 Oreos and sprinkle over cheesecake. Cut into slices and serve chilled. 
  • Cover the cheesecake and store in refrigerator up to 4 days.


  1. Be careful not to create any holes in the foil, the whole purpose of the foil is to prevent water from leaking in to the cheesecake so if it tears water will leak in through the separation in the bottom of the pan.
  2. Nutrition is based off of regular Oreos does not include whipped cream topping.
