Oreos and cheesecake.

It doesn’t get more magical than this!

This is an easy cheesecake dessert that is creamy, dreamy and absolutely delightful.

Definitely one of my faves!

Now, don’t count calories making this. Your head will explode, but trust me every bite is worth it!

So go ahead have a slice and share the rest with your family and friends.

Take it to work and you’ll become very popular I’m sure.

Also if you are afraid that your cheesecake will crack, don’t be! Just make sure your ingredients are room temp! I left everything out for about 30mins and it was fine.

Also don’t overbeat your filling!

After your cheesecake is done, let it sit at room temp for at least 1hr before putting it in the fridge.

Water baths are also great for cheesecakes I know but I don’t have the patience for that so I just skip it. So far I’ve never had issues with cracks, it’s more luck than anything else I’m sure.

Anyways, cracks or no cracks this cheesecake is deelish!

Stars: 5

Level: Beginner

Comments: Cheesecakes can be intimidating especially to the beginner cook, but this recipe is super easy!

Negatives: It does consist of multiple(easy) steps and you will have to chill it for a few hours, but the wait is definitely worth it! 

Will I make it again? Yes for sure!
