Ingredients

  • 24 Oreo cookies, crushed
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • FILLING:
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup whipped topping
  • 10 Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, mix crushed cookies and butter. Press onto bottom of a greased 9-in. springform pan. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand 1 minute. Heat and stir over low heat until gelatin is completely dissolved. Let stand 5 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth; gradually add milk. Beat in gelatin mixture. Fold in whipped topping and chopped cookies. Spoon over crust.
  4. Refrigerate, covered, overnight. Loosen sides of cheesecake with a knife; remove rim from pan. If desired, garnish with additional chopped cookies.
No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake Tips

Can you use homemade whipped cream instead of whipped topping in this no-bake Oreo cheesecake?

Absolutely. Just note that the consistency and flavor of whipped topping make it slightly different than homemade whipped cream. Whipped topping is usually much sweeter than homemade whipped cream. But you can easily make the best homemade whipped cream from scratch!

Do you have to use a springform pan to make no-bake Oreo cheesecake?

While a springform pan gives you that classic cheesecake look and makes it easy to remove from the pan, don’t stress if you don't have one! A pie plate is a great alternative, but you won’t get the taller sides like you do from a springform pan. If you're really in a pinch, you can even use a store-bought Oreo pie crust to save on time.

Can you freeze no-bake Oreo cheesecake?

Yes, you can absolutely freeze cheesecake! After your cheesecake has set up properly in the fridge, you can freeze the whole thing, or just the leftovers. Place it in a well-sealed container and freeze for up to 3 months. Make sure to thaw it before serving again.
