Strawberry Cheesecake with Golden Oreo Crust

I am really hoping this will be my last cheesecake post for a long time. I have made 5 cheesecakes in the last month and believe it or not, I might actually be getting sick of them.

But this cheesecake is a bit different from my last because it is made with golden oreos, which I think taste much better in the cake.

My sister Shauna wanted to make a cake for her boyfriend’s birthday, so I obviously offered to help. We were sort of limited in our options of what to make, he only likes two types of cake: ice cream cake and strawberry cheesecake.

We decided that replicating the Baskin Robbins ice cream cake is a feat we’d save for another time and that adapting the oreo cheesecake recipe I originally used was definitely a more feasible option.

The crust is made by using 25 oreos (with filling) and about 3/4 of a stick of melted butter.

We put 5 quartered oreos into the filling, unfortunately leaving no extra oreos to snack on 😦

We covered these up with more filling, baked the cake, decorated with strawberries and melted chocolate, and this was the end result.

Shauna said Richie liked it, but she said Richie’s younger brother liked it more — he ate three slices in one sitting — success!

Yours edibly,

Elana

(and I guess Shauna, too)
