Its Monday again! Time to clear my fridge to use up left over ingredients. Let's see... what should I bake? Hmm, I have some chocolate butter cream, fresh cream & vanilla cinnamon syrup. I had recently bought a box of Oreo cookies & cream cheese. Oh well, I'm making an awfully sinful Oreo cheesecake!
(Recipe adapted & modify from Baking Library)
200g Oreo cookies finely ground
80g melted butter
*Mix together & pressed into an 8" tin. Chill in fridge until ready for use
500g cream cheese, softened
100g chocolate butter cream
50g castor sugar
200ml sour cream (2 Tbsp lemon juice + 200ml whipping cream)
2 Tbsp vanilla cinammon syrup
3 eggs, lightly beaten
100g oreo sandwich cookies with peanut butter cream filling, coarsely chopped
1. Beat cream cheese, chocolate butter cream & sugar until creamy.
2. Add in eggs & beat until combined. Add in sour cream & vanilla extract till cheesecake filling is smooth.
3. Fold in the coarsely chopped cookie bits & pour filling onto biscuit base.
4. Bake @ 150 degrees C for 1 hr 15 mins in a water bath.
The Oreo crumbs in the middle of the cake look a bit too plain for the cake, so I added a 'Happy Birthday' cake topper (top photo) when taking photos. It does looks better =)
Can't resist this sinful cheesecake.... I am already 'sampling' it while taking these photos!
