Golden Oreo’s happen to be one of my Darb’s favorite foods.  In fact before we got married it was one of the things he always ate.  He would religiously take a turkey sandwich, Doritos chips and Golden Oreo’s in his lunch every.single.day.

Anytime I use them in a dessert I know that it will be a winner at my house but this recipe exceeded my expectations.

The very best part about this Easy Golden Oreo No Bake Cheesecake is that it can be made in 15 minutes.  What could be better than that?

How to make a Golden Oreo No Bake Cheesecake

To make the cheesecake filling combine 2 packages of softened cream cheese with 2 cups of powdered sugar.  Mix the two ingredients together really well before adding the Cool Whip because if there are lumps beyond this point they will be hard to get rid of.

Once the cream cheese and powdered sugar are combined {I like to use a hand held mixer} the mixture should be smooth.

Then you are ready to add the Cool Whip.  Mix it until it is combined using a hand held mixer {or you can do this step by hand}.  The key is to not over mix it because then the filling it will lose volume.

The next step is to chop a dozen Golden Oreo’s.  You can decide how large or small you want the chunks.  I chose to go with a combination and it worked well.

Pour the chopped Oreo’s into the cheesecake mixture and stir to combine.  The chunks should be evenly distributed throughout the filling.

How to make a Golden Oreo Crust

To get a good crumb I like to use a food processor but if you do not have one then just add a package of Golden Oreo’s to a Ziploc bag and crush them.

Add them to a bowl and try to pick out any large clumps.

Now add melted butter to the crumbs.  Melt it in the microwave for about 20-25 seconds and use a fork to combine.

Once the cookies and butter are combined, add them to a ungreased spring form pan.

Press it down into an even layer and slightly up the sides of the pan.

To assemble the cheesecake, pour the cheesecake filling into the prepared crust.  Spread the filling out into an even layer.

The last step is totally optional but I like to cut a few cookies in half and place them onto the top of the cheesecake.  I think it adds a great touch.

You can serve it immediately but it won’t be as nicely set up as it will be if you refrigerate it for an hour or more.

Tips for the Perfect No Bake Cheesecake:

  1.  Use full fat cream cheese.  Full fat cream cheese has a lower water content then the lower fat varieties.  This helps your cheesecake stay together better and slice cleanly.
  2. Combine the cream cheese and powdered sugar before adding Cool Whip.  Mixing together the room temperature cream cheese and powdered sugar allows for you to get a really smooth texture before adding the Cool Whip.  Sometimes adding the chilled Cool Whip will make the cream cheese have lumps which are nearly impossible to remove.
  3. Don’t over mix the filling once you add the Cool Whip.  The Cool Whip adds some volume to the filling.  If you over mix it then you will lose that.  Mixing it in by hand will help eliminate this problem.
  4. Refrigerate for a firmer cheesecake.  This No Bake Cheesecake can be served immediately but will set up and serve better if refrigerated for at least 10 minutes to 1 hour.

Does this No Bake Cheesecake need to be Frozen

No, this No Bake Golden Oreo Cheesecake does not need to be frozen.  In fact, I do not recommend it.  Refrigeration is all that it needs.

Each piece is pure heaven and people will think that you spent hours in the kitchen.  Nobody has to know just how easy it was to make.

If you get the same response that I did then it might be the only dessert you get asked to bring to any gathering…EVER again.  I am telling you that it is really that good!
