WHAT TYPE OF CREAM CHEESE DO I NEED TO USE FOR THIS GOLDEN OREO CHEESECAKE? The best cream cheese to use for this recipe, really any cheesecake, is the Full Fat cream cheese. Low fat cream cheese has a higher water content. This causes it to liquify faster at room temperature. You need full fat for the cheesecake to set up and stay firm.

Yes, you really only need 5 ingredients for this amazing dessert that everyone is sure to love.

  • Golden Oreo Cookies
  • Butter
  • Cream Cheese
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • Whipped topping


GOLDEN OREOS: This cake is loaded with Golden Oreos, so purchase a family size package. These cookies are used to make the crust, are chopped into quarters for in the filling, and are used the decorate the top when it is all set up and ready to serve.

BUTTER: The crushed Oreos are mixed with melted butter to create the most amazing and mouthwatering buttery cookie crust. This delicious crust is just the beginning of the sweet dessert.

CREAM CHEESE: Full fat cream cheese is what you will want to use for most cheesecakes. The water content is less so it will set up better and not simply liquify as easily at room temperature to create an absolutely melt-in-your-mouth dessert. Another important factor, is making sure the cream cheese is at room temperature before you begin. This helps to ensure it blends smoothly so you do not have any lumps of cream cheese in your finished dish.

SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK: Sweetened Condensed Milk is the key. When we don’t have the time or the desire to make a traditional cheesecake we can make a no bake cheese cake and the key to creating one is Sweetened Condensed Milk. It lightens up the cream cheese while adding sweetness and helps it set up in the refrigerator instead of the oven like regular cheesecake.

WHIPPED TOPPING: Fold in the whipped cream to the filling gently. If you mix it too much it will deflate. We want a cake that is light and delicious yet firms up in the refrigerator.

HOW DO YOU STORE GOLDEN OREOS CHEESECAKE LEFTOVERS? You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. These are cream cheese based so they must be refrigerated.
