No Bake Oreo Cookie Cheesecake
I think I will trade in my carrots for
1 1/4 c. choc. crumbs
4 Tbsp. butter or marg.
2 c. whipping cream -- divided
3 250 gr. pkg. cream cheese softened
1 c. sugar
1 1/4 lb. cream- filled choc. cookies
divided -- (about 54)
4 sq. semisweet chocolate
1/2 tsp. vanilla
whipped cream for garnish
Combine crumbs and butter; press into the bottom of a 9 or 10 in
springform pan. Freeze. Whip 1 1/2 c. whipping cream until
stiff peaks form, refrigerate. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream
cheese until smooth. Gradually add sugar, blend thoroughly.
Break 38 cookies, each into 3 pieces, fold into filling along with whipped
cream. Spread evenly into pan, over crust. Cover and chill for 4
hr.. or overnight. Meanwhile, melt chocolate over hot water,
cool slightly whisk in vanilla and remaining whipping cream. Loosen
cheesecake from pan, by running a knife around edge, remove from pan.
Glaze the cake with the chocolate mixture, covering the top and
sides. Put back in fridge until glaze hardens, about 1/2 hr.
To serve, cut into 16 pieces, top each piece with a dollop of whipped cream
and a whole cookie standing upright!
