Oreo Cheesecake

This cake was baked for one of my dept gal, a very fun and cheerful lady. She is the kind that can make monkey faces, dun care about image, will come out tons of jokes that bring us a lot of laughters. She was one of the commitee members for our company DnD (each dept has to dedicate one staff to help out and I chosen her cos she is able to come out a lot of great ideas) and the trainer cum lead dancer of Wonder Juniors - the dancing group that participated in the talent contest during our DnD.

I wanted to bake her a oreo cheesecake after knowing she likes cheesecake. Didn't bake her a chocolate cheesecake cos she just tried the chocolate cheesecake that I baked to celebrate our winning of the talent contest during our DnD.

I didn't know my cream cheese was running low which is not sufficient for most of the recipes that require 500g cream cheese. Thus I had to search through all my collections to look for recipe that only require less than 300g cream cheese and do some modification.

Actually I didn't intend to deco the side of the cake with oreo cookies but no choice in order to cover the flaw as the white chocolate coating is not smooth at all. The cake looked a bit funny with too many oreo cookies, like a spaceship or car tyre hahaha...

I only got to know she loves rum & raisins flavour during her birthday celebration. Huh... too bad that I didn't know in advance cos my spies were not able to get info for me. If not I can make her rum & raisins cheesecake which is what I am good at since I made non bake rum & raisins cheesecake a few times before and everyone raved about it hee hee hee...

The cheesecake is cheesy, soft and moist. The taste is good with the compliment of oreo.

  6. Very interesting and special cheesecake. The texture looks very soft and fine. Wish I can have a slice! Thanks for sharing. MaryMoh at http://www.keeplearningkeepsmiling.com

  7. Hi Mary, try the recipe and u can have many slices :).

  8. Yes Jess, white chocolate is always sweeter than the dark chocolate. That's why I seldom use it in my baking. I suggest the next time you bake this cake, why not mix the melted white and dark chocolate (use bitter choc) together as marble chocolate.

  9. thanks ann for ur great suggestion, wil do it next time :).

  10. But white chocolate goes really well with cream cheese I'll have to say, unlike the dark chocolate! Yours look as scrumptious! Enjoy and have a wonderful day, dear!
