I have a friend whom I see only once a year, she has 4 children and I thought of welcoming them with my cheesecake challenge. I already did chocolate cheesecake so what flavour would the adult and children love to taste?
Well, my sons when they were young they love Oreo cookies and I also like it.. I guess it’s one of the world’s favourite cookies, don’t you think? no rolling of eyes please! I know, chocolate, orange, peanut butter lick it all hahaha…
here we go…OREO cheesecake 🙂 for Flavour no. 37 yay!
12 Oreo cookies, crushed
3 tbsp butter
3 pkg (300g) Philadelphia cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup plain yoghurt
1 egg plus 4 egg yolk
1 tsp citroen essence (optional)
1/2 cup crushed Oreo cookies
Pre heat oven Gas mark #3
Mix butter and Oreo cookies, press onto the spring-form pan. Set aside
Mix cream cheese and sugar,beat at medium speed ( I always make sure that the cheese is at room temperature for easy mixing) Add citroen essence,yoghurt and whipping cream. Add one egg then one egg yolk at a time. Mix thoroughly. Divide the mixture into two. Pour the first mixture onto the prepared pan, add the crushed Oreo cookies on top, Pour the remaining half of the mixture. Wrap the bottom of the pan with aluminium foil, place unto a bigger pan with hot water, bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Turn off the heat, leave the oven door slightly open for another 30 minutes before removing it.Let it cool for another 30 minutes. Chill for 4 hours or overnight before topping.
Fresh from the oven..no crack! 🙂
My chef kevin said, be brave in transferring the cheesecake from the pan to the plate, so every time I do it, I remember him and it’s like a chant..be brave.be brave 🙂
I didn’t have the chance to cut it and take a photo, after topping it,I put it in the box to my friends’ hand.
Here’s the close up photo
I also did a mini version like a mini mouse…trying to be creative somehow 🙂
