Oreo cheescake.

Following Lily's first day at school, I decided she needed a treat for being so brave (unlike me). So we made this yummy Oreo cheesecake. It was quite easy to make, lots of jobs for the girls to do too. This recipe is a no bake recipe which means no hustling the girls out the kitchen to put things into the oven. Although I had to guard it while it was chilling........



Ingredients:
  • 1 packet of Oreos (or I used the pretend ones from the Aldi)
  • 6 digestive biscuits
  • 80g butter
  • 600g cream cheese
  • 280ml double cream
  • Vanilla extract
  • 100g icing sugar



Method:
  1. Take a third of the Oreos and the digestives and crumb. We did this by putting them in a freezer bag a hitting them with a rolling pin.
  2. Melt the butter and mix with the crumbs. The texture should be firm when pressed, but not sticky.
  3. Press into a baking tin with the back of a spoon.
  4. Chill in the fridge
  5. Mix cream cheese and sugar in a mixer until smooth and creamy.
  6. Add vanilla and cream and mix again until creamy and smooth.
  7. Crumb the rest of the Oreos leaving some pieces a bit bigger.
  8. Fold into the cheesecake mixture.
  9. Chill overnight before eating.
  10. Decorate. We used chocolate buttons.
  


 
We really enjoyed devouring this. It has a really creamy texture, with lovely crunchy bits from the Oreos. YUMMY!
