Ingredients

  • Crust:
  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 Tbsp melted unsalted butter
  • 14-15 Lemon Oreos whole
  • Cheesecake:
  • 3 8 oz packs of cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp corn starch
  • Zest from 1 large lemon
  • Topping:
  • About 6 oz whipped cream topping like Cool Whip
  • The remaining half of the Lemon Oreo cookies chopped


Method

Prepare a loaf pan. This can be done by buttering or lining the pan with parchment paper. Take some of the melted butter and lay it around the sides of your pan as well. Crush your Oreos into fine pieces using a food processor or blender. Once you have crushed your cookies, add them in with the rest of the melted butter. Mix it all up really well until you have created an Oreo crumb mixture.

Press the crumb mixture evenly into your prepared loaf pan. Place in the freezer for about a half-hour to set up. At this point, you can bake your cheesecake immediately. Put the cake in the oven at 350 degrees and let it cook for 35-40 minutes.

While your cheesecake is baking, cut your Oreos into pieces (using a bit of a food processor or blender) and melt some butter over medium heat. Mix it all together well until you have a lemon-flavored butter mixture that can help moisten your cheesecake!

After your 35-40 minutes are up, remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool before removing it
from the pan. When cooled, place cheesecake on a cake plate or stand. Finish off your cake with some whipped topping and lemon zest as garnish.
