Questions & Replies

  1. It says to use 23 cookies for the crust. Is that 23 whole cookies (a total of 46 loose) or is that separating the cookies and using 23 loose cookies?
  2. Can you use the filling of the Oreos for the crust in the cheese cake mixture or as a topping?
  3. How do you make Oreo cheesecake step by step?
  4. Do you use the whole cookie for the crumb bottom or do you remove the icing middle first ??
  5. Does it matter if I use unsalted butter or salted butter?


  1. this recipe is great! there is a trick to making the crust though, take all the filling out of the oreo and just use the cookies put them in a food processor make sure its all finely chopped, use butter and mix it with the chopped oreo till it feels like a pasty mix. you'll have an easier time to put it around the spring foam pan. other than that i've been getting nothing but this cheesecake is so good whered u get it haha!
  2. Excellent! Made it just as the recipe stated and it turned out great. Just a note..I learned this the hard way with another recipe that called for an Oreo crust. Do not use the Double Stuff Oreos for a crust. The "stuff" is mainly sugar and shortening. When I baked the crust, the fat in the "stuff" melted and dripped out of my springform pan onto the bottom of the oven, smoking up the house. Regular Oreos work just fine.
  3. Wow, is this delicious! I haven't tried the actual Cheesecake Factory one, but I can't imagine it being much better than this! I prepared it exactly as directed, and all I can say is that it turned out perfectly!
  4. this got raves from family and friends, i thought it was a little on the eggy side.
  5. This recipe is legit. I made this and a home made apple pie for Christmas last year. The cheesecake was gone in minutes...and only 1 slice of apple pie was eaten! This is a crowd pleaser, and it's so easy to make. I use my ninja like a food processor to make the Oreos perfect for the crust. Other reviewers mention taking out the Oreo filling?! NO WAY. This recipe is perfect as is...maybe add a little whipped cream on top. You will not be disappointed!


  1. I didn’t have enough sour cream I substituted it with heavy cream. I went crazy with chocolate syrup and topped it with chocolate frosting and Oreo crumbles
  2. Remove Oreo filling
