Baked New York Style Vanilla and Oreo Cheesecake

by Insomniac Mummy on November 16, 2012

I love cheesecake. It’s a little bit retro yet always a winner when offered up to my family.

This Baked New York Style Vanilla and Oreo Cheesecake is incredibly simple, yet ridiculously decadent all at once and would go down a treat for any occasion. It was specially requested by my son for his 6th birthday, so obviously, I had to oblige!

It’s quite a large cheesecake and you should be able to serve at least twelve with it depending, of course, on how greedy you’re feeling! If you fancy a slightly different flavour, you could substitute the Oreo biscuits with 350g ginger biscuits instead and add the grated zest and juice of a lemon to the cheese mixture, instead of the vanilla essence.

However you choose to make it, I know you’ll be going back for seconds…

Baked New York Style Vanilla and Oreo Cheesecake
Makes 12 slices


For the base

  • 425g Oreo biscuits (approx 2.5 packets)
  • 60g butter – melted

For the filling

  • 400g light soft cheese (I use Philadelphia Light)
  • 250g Mascarpone
  • 2 tbsp (approx 30g) plain flour
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs, plus one extra yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150ml reduced fat soured cream


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Separate the two halves of the Oreo biscuits and discard the white filling.
  3. Put the biscuits in a food processor and pulse until crushed.
  4. Add the melted butter and pulse again to mix.
  5. Pour the biscuit mixture into a 22cm springform tin and press down with a potato masher to compact.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes.
  7. Beat together the soft cheese, mascarpone, sugar, flour, vanilla essence, eggs, egg yolk and soured cream until light and well combined. I use an electric hand mixer for speed and ease.
  8. Pour the mixture over the base and return to the oven for approximately 40 minutes. When cooked the cheesecake will be set bit have a slight wobble in the centre.
  9. Allow to cool completely in the tin.
  10. Remove from the tin, chill in the fridge before serving, and enjoy!

Oh my that looks delicious. Love oreos, but don’t like the white filling, so perfect for me!

I don’t like the white stuff in Oreos either! Too sickly sweet!

The biscuit is much less sweet, and perfect for the base of this cheesecake.
