No-bake Oreo Cheesecake
Yes, I used ice cream for this cheesecake, just because. The ice cream adds yumminess to the cheesecake. Feel free to use whipped cream instead (you may add a little more confectioners' sugar), but why not using ice cream when you can, right?
Ingredients:100 grams Oreos without cream for the base, finely crushed
40 grams butter, melted
250 grams cream cheese, room temperature
20 grams confectioners' sugar
1 tbsp powdered gelatin
3 tbsp water
250 grams vanilla ice cream
100 grams whole Oreos for filling
To finely crush the Oreos, place them in a large plastic bag. Using a rolling pin, beat the living daylights out of it until it crumbles. Finish it by rolling it out until becomes fine crumbs. Mix with melted butter well, then press this dough at the base of 20-22 cm round pan. Let it sit in the freezer while you prepare the rest.
Soften the ice cream using a spoon or spatula, let it sit in the room temperature for a while.
In a small saucepan, mix gelatin with water. Heat the solution until the gelatin is completely dissolved into the water. Be careful no to burn it. Use a double boiler if you're not sure.
in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar together until smooth. Add gelatin, stir well. Make sure it is well mixed before adding ice cream.
Add softened ice cream, stir until well combined.
Pour half the batter into the prepared pan, layer with whole Oreos (or crush them a bit before adding to the pan, it's up to you) then pour the rest of the batter. You could add additional Oreos for topping, if you like.
Store in the refrigerator until set. I personally like to keep the cheesecake in the freezer. It would be like eating cheesecake ice cream. Enjoy!
