Oreo Goat Cheese Cheesecake

Oreo Goat Cheese Cheesecake

With our favorite cookie being the Oreo, it was a must for me to create a unique recipe involving it! I opted for a spin on the traditional cheesecake incorporating goat cheese as well as cream cheese and the lighter greek yogurt alternative. The combination is a perfect amount of sweetness meaning you can skip the glass of water after....if desserts tend to have that effect on you!

Begin by crushing one entire package of oreos for the cheesecake crust in a blender. In a mixing bowl, add the oreo crumbles and mix with the melted butter evenly. Add the crust into the springform pan and press down with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes and remove to cool.

In a large mixing bowl, add the cheeses, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and sugar. Use a hand held mixer to blend until smooth. Pour filling onto the top of crust in springform pan. Place the pan onto a baking sheet. Then, pour 2 cups of water onto baking sheet surrounding the pan. Place in oven and bake for 50 minutes. *The water bath will help in avoiding cracks in your cheesecake!

Then, open the oven door and turn off heat. The cheesecake will continue to cook for 1 hour on the pan itself.

Remove and refrigerate for 4-5 hours (ideally overnight) to let cheesecake set. 

Top with whipped cream as desired. Warm up fudge topping and drizzle before serving! Enjoy!!!
