Ingredients

For the base
Oreo cookies – 20 (with cream)

For the cheesecake
Cottage cheese (paneer) – 200gms

Oreo Cheesecake

Method

Preparation
Butter the bottom and sides of an 8 inch springform pan.
If you don’t have a springform pan, use your normal cake pan or a tart pan. Line the regular cake pan with a clingfilm or aluminium foil. Line the bottom and sides together without cutting the clingfilm so that you can easily lift the cheesecake out when it’s set.

For the base
1. Add the oreo cookies to a blender and crush to a powder.

2. Transfer to a bowl and add 2 tbsp melted butter. Mix well.

3. Transfer the biscuit mixture to the base of the pan and press well all over. Refrigerate until we finish the next step.

For the cheesecake
1. Take 2 tbsp of gelatin in 1/2 a cup of water and mix. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Then heat it in a microwave or sauce pan for 30 seconds. Let it cool. It will become a clear solution.

2. Grate or chop the paneer and add it to a blender. Add the condensed milk and fresh cream and blend till smooth.
3. Now add 20 oreos, chopped roughly and blend everything till smooth.

4. Transfer to a bowl and add the cooled gelatin. Mix well.
5. Bring the base of the pan from the refrigerator and pour the cheesecake mixture in it, tap lightly.

6. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours until set. Once it sets well, remove the outer ring, decorate with more oreos if you prefer and serve!

Notes
1. The melted butter shown in the picture is more, I added only 2 tbsp from it.
2. If you use oreos without cream for the base, you will have to add more than 2 tbsp melted butter to bind the biscuits together. Since I have used with cream, 2 tbsp is more than enough.
3. While making the cheesecake, you need not blend the oreos. You can pour the cheese mixture in a bowl and simply add chopped oreos in it. I wanted the oreo flavor to be predominant hence blended the whole thing together.
4. Use any flavor of oreo cookie you want.
5. You can add a tsp of vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp of salt too.
6. If you prefer you can add more sugar but it’s really not needed with the condensed milk and chocolate oreos.
