My first attempt to make Oreo Cheesecake...

I just love Oreo & Cheesecake. The 2 together would make a sinful treat for me once in a while. It would be wonderful if I could make it myself. It may seem easy for some but for a lousy cook like me, it could mean difficulty !!

Just the other day, my friend, Pauline (thanks dear) shared the recipe with me. I learnt from her that there are 2 methods to making the cheesecake : bake & non-bake version. I immediately requested for the non-bake version since I still haven't gotten an oven (sigh!!).

I went to Phoon Huat (Bedok branch) to purchase some of the baking stuff. The rest of the consumables, I got it from NTUC.

In case you are interested, here's the recipe :

ingredients (base) :

110g digestive biscuits, chopped into fine crumbs
40g melted butter

(filling) :
250g cream cheese

45ml milk
50g icing sugar
1 tbsp vanilla essence
8 oreo cookies (coarsely chopped)

4 oreo cookies (finely chopped)
250ml whipping cream
1tbsp gelatine powder
3 tbsp boiling water

Method :
1. Mix biscuit crumbs & melted butter together and press firmly onto the base of cake tin. Chill for 30 minutes.
2. Beat whipping cream with electric beater until 70% stiff or until mousse-like.
3. Double-boil gelatine & boiling water until totally dissolved. Keep warm. (to double-boil, heat a pot filled with water and place another bowl inside the pot & gelatine & boiling water into the bowl).
4. Beat cream cheese, icing sugar, milk and vanilla essence until smooth & creamy. Blend in gelatine solution.
5. Blend in whipping cream.
6. Pour 1/2 the cheese mixture onto the base. Chill for another 15 minutes.
7. Stir in finely chopped cookies into the other 1/2 of the mixture. Mix well.
8. Sprinkle coarsely chopped cookies on top of the first half of cheese mixture.
9. Pour in the other half of the cheese mixture.
10. Chill for 3 to 4 hours before serving.

Thanks to my mother-in-law who passed her 30 yrs old electric beater from moulinex to me, this makes my job such a breeze ;p

It took me 1.5 hrs to complete the whole process & to wait another 3 to 4 hrs for the cake to chill.

Mission a ccomplished !! Presenting to you my FIRST ever attempt to make a cake *blush*
Greatest achievement for me is hearing that my hubs, boys & maid all say that
"Its YUMMY!!".... YAY ! !

If I can do it, you can too..... hehehehehe ;p

I do the cooking in my house and this sounds just a little too rich for me.

Now for the reason I came by………
As you may be aware, the Big Bang has almost reached 800 sites, which is amazing. I feel that the 1,000-site goal is very doable. If you have not updated your list in a while, I would suggest doing so at http://mondaymorningpower.blogspot.com/2008/01/big-bang-master-list.html, and moving it to your front page, however, that is not the reason for leaving this comment.

I firmly believe that great things will happen to those who express gratitude for what they have. I am tagging you to express your gratitude with a Gratitude meme. Just go to http://AreYouGrateful.Com and follow the simple rules. Tagging is optional, but encouraged. This does come with a health portion of link-love. I also believe that over time, this will grow bigger than the Big Bang. If you don’t feel like being grateful maybe you would like to complain about something. Just go to http://ComplainComplainComplain.Com and follow those rules. The link-love is a combination of those two sites.

I hope to see you at of them………or maybe even both.

Looks very delicious! We also made Oreo cheesecake once in highschool in our home economics class... Just a tip, you can substitue graham crackers for the digestive biscuits as they have a taste of honey ;)

The cake is non bake, so just chill.... easy rite? :)

J@n!ce said...
