The Oreo Cheesecake

The Cake We Make Together


The Oreo Cheesecake. That’s right. It is deserving of the “The.” My son and I have been making this cheesecake today since he was 4 years old. On Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s, this is out celebration dessert.

I don’t remember where this recipe is from after all of these years and the printout is worn. One of the reasons I created Well-Worn Apron was to curate recipes. It is time to transfer this one over from paper to the blog to keep it safe.

While I’ve thought about how to make this plant-based, I’ve decided not too. It is such a cherished dessert to us and indulging in to once a year is OK in my book.

Oreo Cheesecake is easy to make. A good recipe to make with children. They will enjoy crushing the Oreos with a baking pin for the crust, pouring the ingredients in, and decorating before going into the oven. Decorating the cake is my son’s favorite activity and for this Thanksgiving he make a smiley face. I use my Braun food processor to blend the batter and it makes an amazingly smooth batter. Once in the oven, it fills the house with the most wonderful smell.

Making of the Cheesecake

Cheesecakes are fast becoming a holiday tradition in our house. We love them. And I love to make them with my son. We’ve been cooking and baking together since he was able to stand.

We recently made an Oreo Cheesecake together. My son did it pretty much did it all while I read the directions and took the photos.

And the finished cheesecake! Yum!
