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.

this recipe

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.
  • Other no-bake cheesecakes you may like  White Chocolate Tuxedo Cheesecake and SoNo's No-Bake Cheesecake.

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

    These look SO delicious. I’ve not had much success with cutting round servings of cheesecake…do you have any tips & tricks? I’d LOVE some advice!

  3. Avatar for Naomi Robinson 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!

    So cute, I have some oreos sitting in the cupboard just waiting to be transformed. I’d bought them to make ice cream.

    Now do I make cheesecake or ice cream, ummm?

    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.

  7. Avatar for Naomi Robinson 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!

    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!

    Hi Country Girl,

    The lime juice shouldn’t have made a huge difference, let me know where it failed and I can help correct it.

    Thanks for reading and giving it a go.

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

    • Avatar for Naomi Robinson

      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.

    Did you cover these when you refrigerated them?

      Hi Deanna,

      A lose piece of plastic wrap will do fine.

  16. Avatar for Naomi RobinsonDeanna 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?

    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?

  18. Avatar for Naomi Robinson 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!

    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.

    Is there any substitute for cream cheese in this? Its not available easily where I live. :(

  23. Avatar for Naomi Robinson 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 ?

  24. Avatar for Naomi RobinsonMelody 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!

  25. Avatar for Naomi RobinsonJasmine says

    This looks absoloutely georgeous! Is it possible to substitute the heavy cream with double cream?

  26. Avatar for Naomi Robinsonfairy 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

  27. Avatar for Naomi RobinsonCarly 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.
