I always thought cheesecake is impossible to make at home. But after trying it with an easy recipe which does not even require baking ,felt that it is very much doable at home. This oreo cheesecake is made without eggs & gelatine too. It is very much vegetarian. Festive season is here. Let me share the recipe.
100 gms cream cheese
250 ml heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp icing sugar
10-12 oreo biscuits
1 tsp vanilla essence
2-3 tbsp melted butter
Blend 8-9 oreo biscuits in mixer.Add melted butter to it & mix well.
Now take a spring foam cake pan of 7 inches diameter. Here I have used the normal pan & lined it with aluminium foil. It helps to remove the cheesecake with ease.
Take powdered oreo mixed with butter & place it at the bottom of cake pan. Keep it in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes for the base to set.
In the meanwhile take cream cheese at room temperature. Mix icing sugar & vanilla essence into it. Whip the cream cheese till it gets light & fluffy. It take about 3-4 minutes. Keep aside.
Now take the heavy whipping cream & whip it till soft peaks. Icing sugar can be added if the whip cream does not contain sugar.
Mix the cream cheese & whipped cream together. Beat it lightly for a minute.
The oreo base would now be set. Some crumbs of biscuits can be mixed with the cream cheese & whipped cream mixture. This is optional. Now pour the mixture into the cake pan.Level it with spatula. Refrigerate for 3 hours.
The cheese cake is set, carefully take out the cake along with the foil & place on cake sheet. Put few oreo biscuits pieces on the top.
Oreo cheesecake is ready.Serve it chilled.
