The Daring Cheesecake

This months Daring Baker's challenge is hosted by Jenny from JennyBakes. She chose Abbey's Infamous Cheesecake for this month's challenge. I have been baking cheesecakes for many years now, from time to time I get to make something that I really like but then I could never been able to recreate it. So I'm always on a look out for a good recipe.
Like in any other cheesecake recipe, this recipe is very versatile. Once you master the basic recipe you can customize it anyway you want. That for me is the hardest part in making this. Deciding what to do with it to make it different. Of course always turn to my favorite Oreos! I absolutely love Oreos as you can see, I have Oreos with the cheesecake batter and on top of it too! The odd thing I find is that how come it uses only 3 sticks of cream cheese? Usually I often see recipes with minimun of 2 - 8 ounce cream cheese. so just ofr the heck of it. I threw it all in. Yum yum!
It came out very creamy all though I made a mistake of omiting the sugar. Since I didn't remove the white part in my Oreos when I crushed them, I thought they would be sweet enough but nope BIG mistake. It came out okey but just too cream cheese tasting. Another mistake is that I didn't mix the crushed Oreos properly so now they are all floating on top of the baked cheesecake.
Next time I'll try to make it with more Oreos!!! I find the crust too thin and the cheesecake part have so few Oreos in it. All in all, this is a nice challenge which I truly enjoy making.

Check out JennyBakes for the complete recipe.

Till next month challenge...

  9. The oreos (whatever they are I have never heard of them in Australia) look great on the top. The point of DBers is to expand our comfort zones and learn always it seems that this happened this time for you, I just love the whiteness of the cake. I never would of known that it came out "less than perfect". Great effort on this challenge.

  17. It should have been a total of 24 oz of cream cheese, three packages of 8 oz each.

    Regardless, your cheesecake looks great, all black and white! (I'm a month behind, sorry!)

  18. Really??? didn't think of that

    Hehehe...Next time I'll make this recipe again I'll do it with the whole 24 oz, I knew there got to be something wrong with the 3 sticks cream cheese thing, Thanks for clearing it up Jenny
