We are pretty familiar with Oreos now in the UK, but unlike America we don't have easy access to all the different Oreo flavours and varieties (there are 25 at last count!). However, one of the Oreos we can get hold of are Golden Oreos, which are a vanilla biscuit surrounding the cream centre. So of course I had to bake with them, and I came up with this indulgent Golden Oreo Cheesecake! The cheesecake is light and creamy, it's topped with whipped cream, Golden Oreo pieces and a generous drizzle of white chocolate.
The recipe and photos for this post were updated in September 2020.
How to make Golden Oreo Cheesecake
To make the base, use a food processor to blitz up the biscuits into crumbs, or bash with a rolling pin. Add the melted butter to the crumbs and mix in, press the mixture into the bottom of a 23cm springform tin. Put it in the fridge for 30 minutes to set.
For the cheesecake filling, use an electric hand whisk to mix together the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla extract. Once it is smooth with no lumps, add the double cream and whisk until it is very thick and holds its shape.
Smooth the mixture into the tin on top of the biscuit base, then put it in the fridge overnight to set. Melt white chocolate and drizzle it all over the cheesecake. Then decorate with whipped cream and more Golden Oreos.

How do I make sure the cheesecake sets?
When you’re mixing the filling, you want it to get to a stage where you can scoop some up with your spatula or spoon and you have to give it a tap on the side of the bowl or slight flick of the wrist to get the mixture off the spoon. If it’s sloppy and slides right off the spoon without any encouragement needed, then you need to mix it more. Always use an electric mixer for best results. It’s also very important to use full fat cream cheese and double cream (heavy cream), as any low fat versions will affect the setting of the cheesecake. I always set my cheesecake overnight in the fridge, I’d suggest a minimum of 4 hours.
Tips for making the Golden Oreo Cheesecake:
- If you can't find Golden Oreos for this cheesecake, you can use Custard Creams instead!
- You can also swap the Golden Oreos for regular chocolate Oreos, and drizzle with dark or milk chocolate instead.
- If you want to use digestive biscuits for the base instead, use 300g of biscuits and 135g melted butter.
- It is important that you use full fat cream cheese and double cream for the cheesecake filling, and whisk it to the stage described above, otherwise it won't set.
