A slice of Golden Oreo Cheesecake with a bite taken out.

Golden Oreo Cheesecake

Golden Oreo cheesecake is the best thing that has ever happened in my life. Made with a scrumptious and buttery Golden Oreo crust, this dessert recipe is sweet, rich in vanilla, and creamy smooth!

Ingredients

For the crust

  • 2 cups crushed Golden Oreos
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons melted and cooled butter

For the Filling

  • 3, 8 ounces blocks of full fat cream cheese softened to room temp
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup plain greek yogurt I like to use whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups whipped topping the kind of whipped cream/topping that comes in a tub. Full fat works best!
  • 1.5 cups crushed Golden Oreos divided!
  • 12 Golden Oreos Reserve 12 from a family sized package and you should have just the right amount for the crushed needs!

Instructions

  • Golden Oreo Cookie Crust InstructionsPrepare a 9” springform pan by spraying it with non-stick spray and you can line your springform pan with parchment paper if desired. This will help your cheesecake not stick to the pan. To do this just take the bottom of the pan and use it to trace a sheet of parchment paper to lay on the bottom. If you'd like to can also add a strip around the sides. I like to use a little non-stick spray to help it stick.
  • In a large bowl combine crushed Golden Oreos with the salt.
  • Now add your melted butter and mix super well.
  • Pour your crust mixture into a 9" springform pan and pack it in there really well! I like to use the bottom of a measuring cup to do this. You’ll want the crust to start going up the sides ~1-1.5 inches as well as on the bottom.
  • Place this in the freezer for ~15 minutes while you prepare the filling.
  • For The Cheesecake FillingIn a large bowl with electric beaters (or using a stand mixer) first beat the cream cheese by itself for 2-3 minutes.
  • Next, add in the powdered sugar, greek yogurt and vanilla. Beat for another 2-3 minutes until totally combined and there are NO lumps.
  • Now take your whipped topping and fold it in gently. You don't want to stir it, just gently turn over your spatula to get it incorporated without reducing the air (this will cause a soup-y, not light and airy cheesecake!)
  • Once you have a uniform cheesecake filling, fold in 1 cup of your remaining crushed Golden Oreos.
  • Now, take your crust out of the freezer and fill it. Spread the cheesecake mixture until it evenly fills the crust and the top is flat
  • Top your cheesecake with remaining ½ cup of crushed Golden Oreos. Spread these evenly on top & gentle press down on them so they stay put
  • Take your 12 Golden Oreo cookies and press them into the top of the cheesecake, inserting them halfway down & evenly spacing them. Be sure to pat the cheesecake filling down again around the cookies so that there isn’t a gap (press it right up to the cookies! When you insert them there will become a sort of down slope around the cookie- we want to fix this!)
  • Now, place your cheesecake in the fridge UNCOVERED for 24 hours to set. (I think it tastes best honestly after 2 days in the fridge! It gets thicker and easier to cut!)
  • Cut & enjoy!

Notes

To get nice clean cuts of cheesecake you want to take a VERY sharp knife then run it under hot water for a few seconds. Wipe off the knife mostly (a little water is okay, you want it to be warm) and make one cut.Be sure to press all the way down to the crust so they you cut that too. I like to place my two fingers over the knife when I get to the side to help hold up the side of the cheesecake so the crust doesn't fall. Wipe your knife after EVERY CUT!
