There is no need to heat up the oven for this little bit of heaven. The Philadelphia- Oreo No-Bake Cheesecake is a cinch to make and will satisfy any sweet tooth. Best to watch your serving size though, this delight is LOADED with calories (440 per serving)!
Philadelphia- Oreo No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe
1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz.) Oreo Cookies, divided
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
4 pkg. (8 oz. each) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
3/4 cup Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip Whipped Topping, thawed
Coarsely chop 15 cookies. Finely crush remaining cookies; mix with butter.
Press onto bottom of 13×9-inch pan. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until well blended.
Gently stir in Cool Whip and chopped cookies. Spoon over crust.
Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Top with a dollop of remaining Cool Whip.
If you like extremely rich and creamy cheesecake your going to love this recipe. The 4 packages of cream cheese gives the cake a sharp cheese flavor. It’s not one of the most economical desserts to make, since the cream cheese alone is going to cost you $8.00. However, it tastes incredible and you don’t need to heat your home up during the Summer hot weather to make the treat.
If your worried about the calories and fat, use Reduced Fat Oreos, Neufchatel Cheese and Cool Whip Lite Whipped Topping. This will save you 70 calories and 9 grams of fat per serving. My thoughts is if your eating cheesecake–your probably not counting calories anyways and just want to indulge.
For a twist try using mint Oreos and top with a drizzle of chocolate!
