Oreo Cookies and Cream No-Bake Cheesecake ~ An adult dessert gets some kid lov’n with an Oreo crush.

Oreo Cookie and Cream No-Bake Cheesecake

What kid doesn’t love Oreos, right? But not every kid likes cheesecake. Please tell me I am not the only one that acquired a taste for cheesecake through the years.

In fact, I think my first bite of cheesecake was at a Cheesecake Factory when I was in high school. But maybe that had more to do with my parents being very strict, old world Asians. They convinced my siblings and me that American restaurants were for Americans, along with other weird ideas like makeup was to be worn when I was 30-something and boyfriends were had after college graduation. And by that I mean after I became a doctor.

Yeah, so much for parental influence.   I’ve entered Willy Wonka’s world and I never want to leave.

I love this latest creation to come out of my Wonka factory: Oreo Cookies and Cream No-Bake Cheesecake.  Seriously, one of my easiest desserts ever—ten minute prep, throw it in the fridge to set, and enjoy childhood bliss with every Oreo filled cheesecake bite.

Oreo Cookies and Cream No-Bake Cheesecake

Yield: Makes 16 mini 2 inch cheesecakes or one 8 inch cheesecake



  • 1 1/2 cup crushed graham cracker
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 7 tablespoon unsalted butter(melted)


  • 2 ¼ cups heavy cream
  • 1 pound cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • ¾ cups Oreo Cookies, crushed



  1. Combine graham cracker crumbs with sugar.
  2. Add melted butter and blend until combined.
  3. Press into pan. Set aside.


  1. Beat heavy cream until medium peaks form. Set aside.
  2. Add cream cheese, sugar, salt, vanilla powder, lemon juice to a bowl and beat with a paddle attachment until smooth (approximately 3-5 mins). If you do not have a stand mixer or a paddle attachment a hand beater will work as well, but will take twice as long to achieve a smooth consistency.
  3. Add cream cheese mixture to heavy cream and beat until incorporated.
  4. Gently fold in Oreo cookies.
  5. Fill chosen pan with a slight mound at the center, as the cheesecake will become slightly sunken at the center.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours to set or overnight for best results.
  7. Remove from refrigerator and smooth top to level with edges. Serve with whipping cream and garnish with mini Oreos.

A few notes:

  • I made these as Mini Oreo Cookies and Cream Cheesecake, but the recipe will work just as well in a 9 inch cheesecake pan or springform.
  • If you do not have vanilla powder you can omit it. I don’t recommend vanilla extract or it will end up coloring your cheesecake with a slight brownish color.
  • For best results refrigerate overnight.
  • Keep refrigerated up until 20 minutes before serving.

    These are gorgeous!! What did you use to shape these adorable small cheesecakes?

      Use a mini cheesecake pan (they are deeper than mini muffin pan).


  2. says

    two questions –
    1- what recipe did you use for your crusts?
    2- how much vanilla extract would you use if you have clear vanilla extract (I have it for making icing, but sometimes use it in baking when I run out of the brown stuff)

    I am totally makign this recipe this week, its just what the doctor ordered. 😀

      Hi Angela and Jessica,

      Chicago Metallic’s Mini Cheesecake Pan with Removable Bottoms http://amzn.to/awKqEW Once the cheesecake has set and you remove it. Use an off-set spatula to smooth out the top and sides.

      As for the vanilla extract use 1 1/2 teapsoons.

    I’m not sure if my kids would like this one or not, but they’d be willing to give it a try with all those oreo pieces in there. No worries if they didn’t like it – more for me!


  4. says

    Oh my goodness! These little cheesecake look amazing! I’m surprised that you used a graham cracker crust instead of an Oreo crust. Anyway, it looks fantastic. I, too, didn’t acquire a taste for cheesecake until I was much older.


  5. says

    I’ve always been a cheesecake lover but it’s only recently that I’ve started to like less sweet, more adult flavored cheesecakes. And savory cheesecakes have been rocking my world as well.

    There’s always room for Oreo flavored anything in my life though. And I love that these are no-bake!

    These are adorable, especially with the mini Oreos on top!

    I’ve never been big on cheesecakes other than the ones my mum made while I was growing up but these look so delicious you’ve got me wanting a taste!

    I just came across your Blog and everything looks so YUMMY! I’ll be stopping back often. For now, I’ve posted these cute little treats on my blog to show them off for ya! : )

    So this was so beautiful, I just had to try it 😉 Since we are such Oreo fans, we took it one giant Oreo step further and made the crust an Oreo crust in the place of the graham cracker crust. Thank you so much for sharing. Simply delightful!


  9. jane says

    just wondering if i use this recipe can i still bake it?
    Is there a recipe for the baked version of this?


    • Naomi replied: — August 9th, 2010 @ 2:54 pm

      I would not use this as a bake version. There are many baked Oreo versions, but I don’t have one as I’ve yet to try it that way.

  12. Deanna says

    Did you cover these when you refrigerated them?


    • Naomi replied: — January 12th, 2011 @ 10:32 pm

      Hi Deanna,

      A lose piece of plastic wrap will do fine.


  13. Deanna says

    Thanks! Also, in one place you say it can be made as a 9 in cheesecake and in another you say 8 in. Which one is correct?



  14. Julia says

    Hi Naomi,

    Love your mini’s..totally awesome..May I know, does your refrigerating means not freezing it in the freezer compartment of the fridge? I notice that some people may refer refrigerating as normal refrigerating while some may meant as refrigerate it in the freezing compartment. Can you help me out?


  15. says

    This looks AMAZING!
    Cheesecake was definitely an acquired taste for me, glad I’m not the only one. I’ll definitely try this though, because cheesecake is one of the few baking adventures I haven’t tackled yet, and the baked ones freak me out!


  16. says

    This is really interesting, You are a very skilled blogger.

    I have joined your feed and look forward to seeking more of your excellent post.
    Also, I have shared your web site in my social

    I made this the other day- so deliciously dreamy!!!
    I did make some adjustments to the base using tea biscuits and omitting the sugar. Also I made them in a silicone muffin tray and froze them (freezing made it easier to remove from the mold). Oreo cheesecake ice cream- YUM YUM YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thank you for providing this recipe.


  18. says

    its damn yumm! i wanna ask that if i want to make hole big a pound of cheese cake then what the quantity would be used ?


  19. Melody Wang says

    Ok I NEVER comment on recipe sites, but I noticed your comment about having old school Asian parents that force you to become a doctor. I am officially your biggest fan now. Story of my life! I love it! And I cant wait to try this recipe!


  20. fairy says

    Hi..I tried these cheesecakes and they came out divine. However, where I live we do not have heavy cream so I used normal fresh cream. As a result it did not set well..would I be able to use gelatine to set it..? If so, how much would you recommend. .? Thanx


  21. Carly says

    This tasted so rich and creamy. I can’t stop eating it. I doubled the recipe, but was 1/4 cup short of heavy cream. Nonetheless, it tasted fine without it, and it probably would have been too rich for me, haha. Yum.

    My spouse and i ended up being really peaceful when Emmanuel could finish off
    his analysis through your precious recommendations he discovered from your very own site.
    It is now and again perplexing just to choose to be giving freely methods
    which often most people have been selling. We really
    keep in mind we have the blog owner to be grateful to
    because of that. The main illustrations you have made, the easy
    blog navigation, the relationships you make it easier to
    create – it’s mostly extraordinary, and it’s aiding our son and our family feel that
    that subject matter is thrilling, and that is
    exceedingly fundamental. Thanks for everything!

    Hopefully I am going to be making this recipe in a few days since it seems like the most delicious version of this no bake cheesecake, but I was wondering… Did you use regular sugar or powdered/confectioners’ sugar? I had read somewhere that using regular sugar would make it grainy. This would be my first time so I wouldn’t know. Is that true? Thanks.



  1. […] Refusing to be defeated and determined to get my baking fix, I decided to go the “no bake” route. In doing so, I reached back into my archives and pulled out Naomi’s Oreo Cookie and Cream No-Bake Cheesecake. […]

  2. […] Another recipe that combines the best of both worlds! You have that very delightful Oreo cheesecake mixed with that dark, rich and decadent brownie. Might seem a bit experimental, but the end result will leave you amazed. (Recipe and photo: Bakers Royale) […]

  3. […] This dessert dish literally means SWEET! This has all the sweetness that your kids want as a dessert! I’m sure once they tried this sweet dessert, they wouldn’t stop munching until everything is gone. This is a kind of dessert that would be love by your kids! So prepare yourself, doing this again!Credits to the source […]
