BROWNIE LAYER:

  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 18 oz cream cheese (2 - 8oz bricks and 1/4 of another 8oz brick), softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS :
BROWNIE LAYER:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line bottom of a 9" springform pan with parchment paper and spray paper and sides of pan with cooking spray (I use a baking spray, but you could use regular spray and lightly dust with flour instead).
  2. In a small saucepan, melt butter and chocolate until smooth, over low heat, stirring often.
  3. Turn off heat and whisk in sugar. Set aside to cool for 5-10 minutes, stirring often.
  4. To a mixing bowl, add in melted chocolate mixture, milk and eggs, whisking quickly so the residual heat doesn't cook the eggs.
  5. Use a wooden spoon to stir in flour until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan in an even layer, and bake for 25 minutes.

CHEESECAKE LAYER:

  1. Remove brownie pan from the oven and set aside.
  2. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
  3. Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer), beat all cheesecake ingredients together until mixture is smooth. Take care not to mix too quickly, or air bubbles will form.
  4. Pour cheesecake batter over brownie layer in pan.
  5. Bake for 50 minutes, until center is slightly jiggly (or when an instant read thermometer inserted into the center reads 150.
  6. Remove from oven and cool at room temperature, with the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  7. Place pan in the refrigerator for 4 hours, or overnight to chill and firm up to that amazing cheesecake consistency.

COOKIE DOUGH LAYER:

  1. In a stand mixer (or hand mixer), cream together butter and both sugars on MED-HIGH speed until light and fluffy.
  2. Beat in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract.
  3. Beat in salt and flour. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
  4. Use an offset spatula to gently spread cookie dough over the top of the cooled cheesecake.
  5. This is done most easily when the spring has been undone and the cheesecake is free from the sides of the pan.
  6. If you can't spread the cookie dough, gently press pieces together to "spackle" the cookie dough onto the cheesecake.

FINISH THE CHEESECAKE:

  1. Microwave milk chocolate chips and vegetable oil in 30 second bursts (stirring each time), until nearly melted. Stir to melt remaining lumps.
  2. Drizzle melted chocolate over the top of the cheesecake.
  3. To slice, use a long, thin knife. Dip knife blade into very hot water, shake off excess and slice carefully. Between each slice, use a paper towel to wipe off cake crumbs and reside, then dip knife into the hot water again before slicing.

If you don’t have a mini cheesecake pan, you may use a quick bread tin. simply make certain to line it with slippery  paper or foil liners, otherwise the cracker crust may crumble and also the cheesecake may stick once you attend take away them.
  • These babies ar flat-top with caramel sauce, I like preserved caramel. I even have a full bit-by-bit video tutorial on creating do-it-yourself caramel here. to form the direction easier, you'll in fact use boughten. simply make certain it’s high quality! i really like monger Joe’s preserved Caramel sauce.
  • Keep the cheesecakes well chilled till serving that the caramel doesn’t run an excessive amount of.


MINI TURTLE CHEESECAKES

INSTRUCTIONS :
Make the crust:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 12 cup mini cheesecake pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Place the graham crackers in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add in the melted butter and pulse until moistened. Divide the mixture among the cavities of the cheesecake pan, about 1 heaping tablespoon in each. Firmly press into the bottom of each cavity (a shot glass or other small object makes easy work of this).
  3. Bake the crusts for 5 minutes, or until fragrant. Remove from oven and reduce temperature to 325°F.

Make the filling:

  1. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese and sugar on medium-high speed until smooth and fluffy. Add the vanilla, cream, salt, and cinnamon and beat until smooth. Add the egg and beat until just combined. Divide the mixture among each cavity.

Drizzle the chocolate over the caramel and pecans. Return to the fridge to chill until ready to serve.

DELICIOUS OREO CHEESECAKE RECIPES

December 08, 2019
Say howdy to the craziest cooky Cheesecake you ever had, screw-topped with shredded cookies and chocolate ganache. You won’t believe however wonderful, creamy and straightforward to form it is!

Oreo and cheesecake ar 2 words which will build a course believer out of just about anyone.

Is it the cheese or the cake half that's therefore appealing? most likely each. You can’t get it wrong with cheese followed by cake. particularly cooky cheesecake.

DELICIOUS OREO CHEESECAKE RECIPES

What makes this formula work.
Layers: this cheesecake is completely different from most in this there ar distinct cooky and cheesecake layers. Cookie crust, creamy cheese filling, cookie prime layer. That way, you get all flavors along however one by one too, if that produces any sense. Anyway, it works!
Bake ahead: like most cheesecake recipes, it's suggested that it’s baked a number of days before consumption. meaning that you simply will serve a unpunctual cooky cheesecake for course with smallest fuss.
Freezing: it will be frozen for up to a month. Wrap it well in plastic then in foil and you have got cheesecake any time you wish.
Dessert for a crowd: Oreos ar a favourite of the majority, therefore bake this formula in an exceedingly rectangular pan (the cake won't be as tall), then you'll cut it in smaller squares and feed more guests like i prefer to try and do with my Baked Cheesecake.

DELICIOUS OREO CHEESECAKE RECIPES

INGREDIENTS :

  • For the cookie base:
  • 1 ½ cups (150g) crushed oreo cookies
  • 3 Tbs (45g) butter, melted

For the cheesecake:

  • 1/4 cup (60g) sour cream, at room t
  • 1 ¼ cups (250g) sugar
  • 4 large eggs (room tº)
  • 2 pounds (900g) cream cheese, at room t
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup cream
  • 9–10 Oreo cookies (cut into small pieces)

For the ganache:

  • ¼ cup cream
  • 2 oz (60g) semisweet chocolate

INSTRUCTIONS :
For the base:

  1. Line bottom of 9-inch springform pan with foil, tuck foil underneath pan bottom, assemble pan, then pull foil around sides of the pan. This makes it a snap to unmold.
  2. Melt butter. Add ground cookies and mix with a spoon. Or mix directly in the processor if you used it to grind the cookies.
  3. Put the mixture in prepared pan and press firmly onto the bottom. Refrigerate while making the filling.

For the cheesecake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF/175°C.
  2. Beat cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth. Add sour cream and mix.
  3. Gradually add sugar and beat on medium speed until sugar dissolves.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing until just incorporated and scraping down sides of the bowl after each addition. At this point, I change to a hand beater because I don’t want to incorporate extra air into the mixture, so I don’t beat it, simply mix it well. 
  5. Add vanilla and cream, stirring to incorporate.
  6. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  7. With a sharp knife cut cookies into small pieces. You will have some pieces and some crumbs.
  8. Scatter oreo pieces and crumbs on top of the cheese batter.
  9. Take a spoon and lightly push crumbs into cheese mixture until barely covered. That way the end result is a distinctive cookie crust, cheese layer and cookie crumbs on top.
  10. Bake for 15 minutes, turn the oven down to 300°F (150ºC) and bake for another 50 to 60 minutes. (This can vary depending on your oven. At this point the cheesecake should still jiggle in the center).
  11. Turn the oven off and, without opening the door, let the cheesecake inside at least 1 hour. Cool to room tº.
  12. Refrigerate for at least 12 hours (2-3 days makes it creamier) before unmolding.
  13. To do that, open springform pan, lift foil to remove from the bottom and, holding the cake in one hand, push the foil down and lift the cake with your other hand.
  14. For the ganache:
  15. Chop chocolate and place in a small bowl.
  16. Bring cream to boil, pour over chocolate and stir until very smooth.
  17. With a spoon or fork pour ganache over cheesecake.

  • 1/2 cup almond flour or meal
  • 2 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts
  • 2-3 tablespoons water, as needed for processing
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the filling (1st & 2nd layers):

  • 1/3 cup agave or pure maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  2. Make the crust: To a food processor, add the walnuts, almond flour, dates, 2 tablespoons water and salt. Process until a sticky dough is formed, adding another tablespoon of water (or more) if needed. Do not over process. Press the dough evenly along the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Make the first layer: To a high powered blender, add the soaked cashews, coconut milk, agave or maple syrup, lemon juice and vanilla. Blend for about 2 minutes, stopping the scrape the sides of the blender as needed. Blend until very smooth and creamy.
  4. Pour 2/3 of the filling on top of the crust in the pan. Place in the freezer while you make the next layer.

  6. Make the third layer: Quickly rinse out the blender, and add the 1 cup raspberries, lemon juice, agave/maple and chia seeds (the tart raspberry top layer ingredients). Blend until smooth, and pour over the other layers. 
  7. Return to the freezer, and let set for at least 3 hours (overnight preferred). To serve, gently remove from pan and run a large heavy knife under hot water for a minute before cutting the cheesecake with the warm, dry knife. You can also let it thaw to room temperature for 10-15 minutes to make it easier to cut.
  8. Store leftovers in the fridge for a couple of weeks, but make sure to wrap it well to avoid freezer burn. Top with more fresh raspberries, if desired.
