    You may have noticed.

    I know I have.

    Cherry Cheesecake with Oreos and Chocolate Chip Cookie!


    My blog has turned into a den of gluttony.  A shameful place to gorge on insane amounts of calories.  A sinful stuff fest.  Can it be stuffed into something?  Then I will do it.

    I feel as if I need to share a behind the scenes with you.

    I have been baking like CRAZY.  Cake after cake after cake.  Most of these cakes are for jobs or editorial images only so I haven’t been able to share on my blog.

    And after a long week of intricate designs and complicated recipes and cake…

    Cherry Cheesecake with Oreos and Chocolate Chip Cookie!


    I just want to indulge.  I want mindless.  I want stuff stuffed into intimate cheesecake crevices.  I want to ignore calories and complicated instructions.

    Cheesecake.  Oreo.  Cookie dough.  Can of cherry stuff.

    Cherry Cheesecake with Oreos and Chocolate Chip Cookie


        • 1 (6-ounce) package of Oreo premade pie crust
        • 2 tbsp. melted butter
        • 13 Oreos (I used the vanilla and chocolate variety)
        • 1 (36-ounce) container Nestle cookie dough
        • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese (room temperature)
        • 1/2 c granulated sugar
        • 2 eggs
        • 1 (21-ounce) can cherry topping


        1. Melt butter and in a medium bowl, combine with Oreo crumbs. Press into a well prepared 7-inch springform pan and create a bottom crust.
        2. Press Oreos into crust, vanilla side down.
        3. Scoop out mini balls of cookie dough and press onto each individual cookie.

        Prepare Cheesecake

        1. Place cream cheese in stand mixer and mix for 30 seconds to a minute on medium-high speed. You want to cream cheese to be creamy in texture.
        2. Add in sugar and then eggs, one at a time. Scrape bowl with spatula and mix for about 30 more seconds on medium, until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
        3. Pour cheesecake mixture into pan with Oreos and bake for 35-45 minutes at 350 degrees. (I baked for 40 minutes at 325 degrees in my convection oven.)
        4. Chill for two hours before serving.
        5. When ready to serve, pour cherries over cheesecake.

        As you can see, I opted for easy.  Store bought pre-made ingredients.  I also chose to only put the cookie dough over each cookie, instead of making it a whole layer.  Since we are big cheesecake fans here, it just made more sense.

        And don’t look to close at the picture above or you will see it PRE Oreo crust layer.  I went back and removed all the cookies and added that.  Seeing as the cheesecake would seep all the way to the bottom, I needed a delicious place for it to land!

        Whoa!!! This looks amazing!!! I just discovered your site and am I ever glad I did 🙂

        Is there room in the Den of Gluttony for me? pleasesayyes

        Man this looks soo good, although I’m not crazy about baked cheesecakes. Might have to replace that with a set cheesecake instead

          I have honestly never heard that before! 🙂

        Oh my goodness, Oreos and cookie dough in cheesecake! This is amazing. I can only imagine how wonderful it would be to dig into this. 🙂

          It’s pretty yum. Thanks so much sweet Beth!!

        Yep, this cake is my dream! Lovely recipe!

        Talk about an easy gorgeous cheesecake. My husbands favorite dessert is cheesecake and he is going to be thrilled with this recipe.

          My hubby’s favorite is cheesecake too! Although he is a purist and this didn’t appeal to him in the slightest. 😉

        O M G my jaw just hit the floor. Amazing!!

        It’s really delicious
        With cookies is great too

        Can I come live in your den? OMG. This is, like, the best cheesecake ever.

        This looks so rich and decadent! I just pinned for later – this is one recipe I am going to have to try to recreate!

        Ahhhhhh, I’m dying! I need this in my life!!

        YEAY!!! I am so happy that my recipe inspired THIS! So many calories, but totally worth every bite! Keep on being amazing 🙂

        Amanda, I saw your cookbook in two places this morning – so I had to come to your site. Your work is quite amazing and makes me want to start baking right now! Congrats on your book and your beautiful food…can’t wait to dig in.

          Thank you so much Amy! That is very kind of you. Happy Baking!!

        “a den of gluttony”… oooh… give me more of that..
        Those pictures are making me drool…
        ah well.. a little bit of gluttony cant be that bad for me 🙂

        How can I make cookie dough as we don’t get it ready made in South Africa

        That was really good my family enjoyed

        Made this last weekend and it turned out perfectly delicious. Will definitely make again!

        i am very confused as to what you used as the crust. Is the bottom layer made from the 13-14 oreo cookies mixed with butter? And then when do you use the premade crust. Can you please give me detailed instructions!

          Rachel, I am just now coming across this recipe…it appears to me that you crumble the oreo crust and mix with the butter for the bottom layer of cheesecake crust…then top that with the vanilla/chocolate cookies and remaining ingredients. I tried to google and see if oreo sells crumbs in 6 oz pkg…but only the pie crust version. I notice it has been over a year since you posted and not received an answer…have you made this recipe yet? If so, what did you do on the crust.

        It’s pretty yum. Thanks so much sweet Beth!!

        Don't Pass on Dessert!
