No-bake Oreo Cheesecake

I realized that i can go pretty crazy with Oreos. Seriously.
I was doing my grocery shopping at Woolworths (as usual) when i spotted a basket full of Oreos packs near a supermarket pillar. I immediately knew that when you find a product in those baskets, it is either discounted or on special. For my delight, they were down to 99 cents and i did not hesitate to get 10 packs!
Apart from indulging myself with Oreo from that day onwards, i also decided to make a no-bake Oreo cheesecake since i had a block of cream cheese sitting in my fridge. I wanted a higher Oreo cheesecake but i was to lazy to get one more block of cream cheese from the supermarket...oh well.
This recipe is not hard and it doesn't require any sort of baking but my least favorite part was crushing a whole pack of Oreo biscuits with my rolling pin. It was quite tiring...

No-bake Oreo Cheesecake
Ingredients:
- 2 packs of Oreo
- 50g of melted butter
- 250g of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, room temperature
- 45ml milk
- 50g icing sugar
- 1 tbsp of vanilla extract
- 250ml of thickened cream
- 1 tbsp of gelatine powder
- 10ml lemon juice
- 3 tbsp of boiling water

Method

1. With the first pack of Oreo, remove the cream filling and set it aside. Crush all the Oreo biscuits with a rolling pin. Mix biscuit crumbs & melted butter together and press firmly onto the base of cake tin. Chill for 30 minutes. 
2. Beat whipping cream with electric beaters until mousse-like.
3. Double-boil gelatine, lemon juice & boiling water until totally dissolved. Keep warm.
4. Beat cream cheese, icing sugar, milk, Oreo cream filling (from step 1) and vanilla essence until smooth & creamy. Then, blend in the gelatine solution.
5. Add the whipping cream and blend well.
6. Pour 1/2 the cheese mixture onto the base. Chill for 15 minutes.
7. Sprinkle coarsely chopped cookies (8 Oreo biscuits) on top of the first half of cheese mixture.
8. Stir in finely chopped cookies (4 Oreo cookies) into the other 1/2 of the mixture. Mix well.
9. Pour in the second half of the cheese mixture.
10.Chill for 4 hours or overnight before serving.
Decorate as desired. I used some whipping cream and mini-Oreo biscuits to decorate my Oreo cheesecake. Enjoy!

The Oreo Cheesecake turned out quite nice and creamy, and i loved the base (i always like the biscuit cheesecake bases). I used a total of 2 packs of Oreos so there was plenty of Oreo taste all over the cheesecake! =)
