Oreo Cheesecake Bars

  • Note: This post first appeared on February 29, 2012. The photography got a facelift! Enjoy!

    Oreo’s. The chocolate sandwich cookie that I find absolutely irresistible. I am a fan of cookies and creme everything especially in the form of ice cream and milkshakes.

    The big question is: regular or double-stuffed?

    Double-stuffed all the way. Whenever I have regular Oreo’s, I’m constantly wondering where the filling went because I’m so used to the double-stuffed, haha

    If you love cheesecake and Oreo’s and the whole cookies and creme flavor then you will love these Oreo cheesecake bars! It’s full of Oreo goodness. Oreo crust on the bottom and crumbled up Oreo’s throughout the entire cheesecake! You won’t be able to resist this. It’s a little too dangerous to keep in the house!

    This decadent dessert will win you over with the first bite!

    Servings: 12
    Ingredients
    For the crust:
    • 23 Oreo cookies, the whole cookie - icing and all!
    • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
    For the cheesecake:
    • 12 oz cream cheese, room temperature
    • 6 tbsp sugar
    • 6 tbsp sour cream, room temperature
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
    • 12 Oreo cookies, roughly chopped (the whole cookie - icing and all!)
    Instructions
    1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line a 8x8 inch baking dish with foil. Let two sides of the foil overhang on the baking dish (so it's easier to pull out the cheesecake).
    2. To make the crust, in a food processor, pulse the Oreos until they're finely ground. Add in the melted butter and pulse until the cookies are moistened.
    3. Transfer the ground Oreos to the prepared baking pan and press the crumbs in an even layer over the bottom of the pan. Bake crust for 10 minutes then set aside while keeping the oven on.
    4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese on medium high until light and smooth, about 2 minutes. Then mix in the sugar until well-combined.
    5. Blend in the sour cream, vanilla, and salt. Then beat in the egg and egg yolk until well-incorporated.
    6. Gently stir in the chopped Oreos.
    7. Pour cheesecake batter over the prepared crust and smooth out the top with a spatula. Bake for 40 minutes, or until cheesecake is set around the edges but slightly wobbly in the center.
    8. Let cheesecake cool to room temperature, about 1 hour then cover the pan and refrigerate until well chilled, about 3 hours. I chilled mine overnight.
    9. To cut the bars, lift the overhanging foil from the pan and place it on a cutting board. Peel away the foil and slice into bars. Clean the knife blade after each slice to keep the edges pretty.
    10. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. You may keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, if it lasts that long!

    I use to hate cream cheese, but I love oreos! I’ve slowly grown a love for cream cheese..slowly. These look and sound delicious! I may have to give these a try and make them this weekend for some guest. (:

  • Sally @ sally's baking addiction says:

    these look like perfection! love all the big oreo chunks. :) i’ve been craving mint oreos lately, i wonder what these would be like with mint oreos instead of regular. either way, i’m sure these are to die for. great recipe!!

  • Kathryn says:

    I think these are probably way to dangerous for me to even consider making…

  • Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray says:

    I don’t think there are even words for these.

    Oh. My. Goodness.

    How did you know that cookies and cream milkshakes are what I dream about at night?! I need these in my life now, guilt be damned.

  • Kelly Senyei says:

    Would these be a suitable breakfast food? Regardless of the answer, I’m craving a bar (or 9) right now and could really use an early morning chocolate fix. These are gorgeous, Julie!

  • Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious says:

    Julie, this looks great! I’m sure these are to die for and highly addictive but I don’t know if I should make these. I’m already running 5 miles/day but if I make these, I will definitely eat all of them and then I’d have to run 10 miles/day!

  • Lindsay @ Pinch of Yum says:

    Your blog is looking beautiful!!! :) as are these yummies.

  • Skye (Skye Loves...) says:

    Sensational. Not sure if I’m brave enough to try to make these – I suspect that one just wouldn’t be enough and I would just have to eat them all…

  • thelittleloaf says:

    I reckon I could get over the guilt pretty quickly…in fact I reckon I’d forget about pretty much everything once I’d taken a bite of these. Amazing – pinned to try the recipe soon!

    These look amazing. I’m afraid I’d eat them ALL!!!

  • Rachel says:

    These are great. I made them in a spring form pan (didn’t have an 8×8) and accidentally put in only 8 ounces of cream cheese. (not sure how that detail evaded me) Anyway, they are still delicious despite the edits. Thanks for a yummy recipe.

  • leslie says:

    I will sooooooooooooooo be making these! pinned!

  • Anna @ hiddenponies says:

    I don’t believe in feeling guilty about eating so I should definitely make these :)

  • ATasteOfMadness says:

    I didn’t think anything could top oreo ice cream. I was obviously wrong. These look great

  • Katie {EpicureanMom.com} says:

    Whoaaaa!!! I need these now!!!! These look incredible! What a perfect combo!!

  • Marti says:

    Oh.My.God. I know know what I’ll be having for dessert tomorrow ..!

    Just one question: do you leave the cream in the oreo’s for the crust, or do you take it out?

    • Julie says:

      Yup, leave the cream in and pulse it in the food processor really fine!

  • francesca says:

    They came out delicious. Only look wise once I added the yolk, they came out yellow, how come the one’s you made are white? Any suggestions?

    • Julie says:

      Oh, that’s weird. I couldn’t quite tell you why mine came out white. I guess I was lucky, but my suspicion is you didn’t beat it long enough? Usually I beat the egg yolks in until you don’t see any color left in the batter. Sorry that happened to you! Wish I could tell you why :(
