the cheesecake factory oreo cheesecake

i have never been to The Cheesecake Factory.. the only cheesecake speciality store i ever been to is Singapore's cheesecake cafe located at Siglap. from what i remember, the cheesecake is not particularly good, but it is nice enough..  i actually like cheesecakes from Coffee Bean & Tea leaf. they serve very decent blueberry cheesecake...

while i was searching for the original new york cheesecake recipe for two of friends' birthday (yes they share the same birthday, exactly.. what a small world..), i chanced upon this oreo cheesecake recipe from Copykat.com. this website is super interesting for it shares secret recipes of famous foods, mostly those in US.

when i saw the recipe, i knew instantly that it would be the perfect birthday cake for them.

from buying the ingredients to finally getting a taste of it, the entire process took me about 28 hours... as the saying goes, you reap what you sow. what can i say more? although i have never tasted the cheesecake factory's signature oreo cheesecake, i think this can also sweep cheesecake lovers off the ground...

The Cheesecake Factory's Oreo Cheesecake (it is that good..)

Ingredients (i converted the measurement to metric units)

680 g ------------ cream cheese, room temp
226 g ------------ sour cream (i used yoghurt), room temp
5 ----------------- large eggs, room temp
5 ----------------- Oreo cookies, chopped coarsely
10 ---------------- Oreo cookies, chopped coarsely (for the topping)
125 g ------------ castor sugar
31 g ----------- plain flour
2 tsp ----------- vanilla
1/4 tsp --------- salt

25 -------------- Oreo cookies, finely chopped (for the base)
2 tbsp --------- melted butter


1. mix melted butter with finely chopped cookies and press into the bottom of 9-in spring form pan and 1.5in up the sides, set aside
2. beat cream cheese on low until fluffy
3. slowly add sugar and continue beating until well mixed
4. add eggs one at a time and continue to beat until well blended
5. measure the vanilla, salt and flour and pour into cream cheese- egg mixture and beat until smooth
6. add sourcream and beat well
7. stir in the coarsely chopping cookies with a spoon
8. pour cream cheese mixture into the prepared pan and sprinkle the other set of coarsely chopped cookies on the top of the cream cheese
9. baked in a preheated oven at 165degC for 1hr 15min.
10. after that, keep oven door open and leave the cake inside for another hour
11. remove cake from oven and let cool until cool enough to be chilled. refrigerate for 24 hours

it is a looong process, but completely worth it. i am sure this is the ONLY oreo cheesecake recipe i will ever use..
