Oreo Cheesecake

I made this dessert yesterday and it was yummy! Even better, it doesn't heat up the house to make it!

I found the recipe in a Kraft Foods magazine a long time ago.

1 pkg. oreo cookies
1/4 C butter, melted
4 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tub cool whip, thawed

Line 13 x 9 inch pan with foil. Coarsely chip 15 oreos; set aside. Finely crush remaining oreos; mix with butter. Press firmly into bottom of pan. Refrigerate while preparing filling.

Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping and chopped cookies. Spoon over crust. Cover.

Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.


  1. i'm lucky i got to taste it! thanks for cutting us a piece. it was seriously tasty. i LOVE how much oreos are incorporated into this.... not just in the crust. YUM.

  2. this sounds so good!!

    although for us it wouldn't be so bad to heat up the house right now! :)
