Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Bites…Posted: February 5, 2013 | |
After doing quite a bit of baking recently I felt like making something different and I spotted this cheesecake recipe online. I was a little dubious after the numerous fails I’ve had with American recipes in the past but this one was a great success! It can be found on ‘Brandy’s Baking Blog’ by following this link! While you can make these in a rectangular try and cut them into ‘bites’ it would also make a great round cheesecake to serve as a desert at a party!
The ingredients are quite minimal and all in all the recipe is very simple to make! I used slightly less Oreo’s than stated in the recipe as they’re not the cheapest thing to buy! I used two standard sized packets (300g in total) for the entire cheesecake using just over one packet for the base and the rest for the topping. To help you on your way I have converted the ingredients list for you!
For the crust
450g Oreo cookies
75g unsalted butter, melted
For the filling
675g cream cheese, at room temperature
150g granulated white sugar
175ml sour cream or creme fraiche
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs, at room temperature
When it comes to baking this cheesecake follow the recipe! When it says leave it wobbly in the centre don’t panic as this will continue cooking once removed from the oven. I slightly overcooked mine as it cracked in the middle but it made no difference to the taste and it was still amazing to eat! When it comes to removing it from the tin make sure it has firmed fully in the fridge and remember to cut right through he base! Good luck! It really is a recipe worth trying!
