Oreo Cheesecake

The past 365 days was a blast.

Our first run!

Sunset @ Bali

a year older, a year wiser you (I hope! hehe)

The first thing my boyfriend made for me was a chilled oreo cheesecake. When we first started out, he had a day off then, and I casually said that he should make good use of his day off doing something constructive. He ripped a random oreo cheesecake recipe off the internet because I once said I like to eat cheesecake. Then he appeared at my place out of the blue and brought me the cheesecake. It was pretty good despite having the agaragar like texture :P

bf's then oreo cheesecake being maliciously torn apart by me

Anyway here's my version of our oreo cheesecake to celebrate that special you who created so many positive changes in my life. Looking back at our past year, looks like we've accomplished a lot together. More good years ahead, Happy 1st year anniversary Hun!

...And wishing all a Happy Chinese New Year! :D

Oreo Cheesecake (adapted from Evan's Kitchen Ramblings)
Makes 7" cake (Mine is a taller 6")


Biscuit Base:
110g (80g) digestive biscuit crumbs (I use Oreo crumbs)
40g (30g) unsalted butter, melted

Cheesecake Filling:
250ml whipping cream
250g cream cheese, room temperature
45ml milk
50g icing sugar
1 tbsp vanilla essence or rum (I use 1 tsp vanilla powder)
1 tbsp gelatine powder
10ml lemon juice
3 tbsp boiling water
8 oreo cookies (coarsely chopped)
4 oreo cookies (finely chopped)

1. Mix biscuit crumbs & melted butter together and press firmly onto the base of cake tin. Chill for 30 mins.
2. Beat whipping cream with electric beaters until 70% stiff or until mousse-like. Refrigerate for later use.
3. Double-boil gelatine, lemon juice & boiling water until totally dissolved. Keep warm.
4. Beat cream cheese, icing sugar, milk and vanilla essence until smooth & creamy.
5. Blend in gelatine solution until well combined.
6. Fold in whipped cream.
7. Pour 1/2 the cheese mixture onto the base. Chill for 15 mins.
8. Stir in finely chopped cookies into the other half of the mixture. Mix well.
9. Sprinkle coarsely chopped cookies on top of the first half of cheese mixture.
10. Pour in the other half of the cheese mixture.
11. Chill for 3 to 4 hours before serving. Decorate as desired.
