Oreo No-Bake Cheesecake

source: scanned image from Kraft Food & Family

I made this Oreo No-Bake Cheesecake for Easter and I had to include the picture from the magazine where I got the recipe.  Isn't that a nice picture of the cheesecake?  I can't imagine how long it took to cut the slice and get that Oreo cross-section like that in the cake.  I cut my Oreos just like this, now look below at my picture!  It really lacks that photogenic quality.

I have a long way to go on food styling.  Especially since I burn a quarter of everything I cook.  But, today your in luck this was no-bake!  

1 pkg. (1 lb. 2oz.) Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, divided
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
4 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tub (8 oz.) whipped topping, thawed

  1.  Line 13 x 9 inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan.  
  2. Coarsely chop 15 of the cookies; set aside.  Finely chop remaining cookies; mix with butter.  Press firmly onto bottom of prepared pan. 
  3. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
  4. Beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla in a large mixing bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.  Gently stir in whipped topping and chopped cookies.  Spoon over crust ; cover.
  5. Refrigerate 4 hours until firm.  Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator. 
Makes 24 servings

Hi Sherry, I think you cheesecake looks as pretty as I'm sure it is delicious! I love deserts that are no bake. This will surely be a hit here. Love the dainty desert set with the violets.

Bliss in squares. This would be perfect for the hot summer months (which I hope arrive SOON!) when you want dessert but don't want to heat up the kitchen with the oven!
