New York-Style Oreo Cheesecake

This thick cheesecake is made tall and dense to be New York-style with Oreos in the batter and an Oreo crust.

Oreo New York Cheesecake is the easiest recipe for cheesecake you’ll find. Thick, dense and loaded with Oreo cookies, this perfect New York cheesecake is so simple, it’s positively fool-proof!

Cheesecake is a favorite in our house and one of the most requested recipes out of everything I make. Why wouldn’t it be? I mean, there is something to be said about a nice thick slice of cheesecake that satisfies every sweet-tooth craving one could possibly have. Most people head out to a restaurant for just one slice. But you know the markup on desserts when you dine out is like 35%? My friends, I’m here to tell you that you CAN make this AMAZING Oreo New York Cheesecake at home and it is SO MUCH BETTER than anything you can buy.

Honestly, I’m not kidding. I know people tend to get intimidated by a recipe like this. But I’m here to break it all down for you so you can have all this deliciousness any time you want. For years I would make different cheesecake recipes and they would crack or were just so complicated that it wasn’t worth the effort. But I have worked years to simplify the process so it is quick and easy. I promise, it turns out perfect every single time. It is AH-MAZ-ING!

Now- you don’t have to make this with Oreo cookies. I just happened to be making an Oreo cookie crust with this New York Cheesecake, so I decided it would be pretty awesome if I crumbled up some of those cookies and added them to the cake itself. I’m so very glad I did. But you can also leave out the Oreos and just add some chocolate sauce or fresh fruit too. It all would be delicious.
