Oreos and cheesecake are absolutely two of my favorite things. When Oreo wants to come up with a cheesecake filling version of their amazing cookies, I will be first in line to buy them. Until then, this cheesecake will have to do. It’s a perfect blending of flavors. The Oreos don’t take away from the cheesecake taste at all — they just add to it. The chocolatey crust is a perfect base, and the roughly chopped pieces floating around give the perfect texture.
This is in my top 5 favorite desserts. It’s rich and sweet and creamy and crunchy — it covers all the bases. Make this dessert to impress — it will not let you down.
