Because I'm a sucker for everything Oreo....
As you guys may recollect, a week ago i posted my NewYork Style Cheesecake recipe.....we ate it for a good 3 days, sparingly, making sure that some of it was always present in refrigerator...
We were in love..i know there are no bake versions, but trust me, there is a huge difference between the baked and non baked ones...HUGE!!
As i have said earlier, make sure you have everything in room temperature atleast for 4-5 hours,this just makes mixing easier and your batter will be lump free. By the way, did i mention that this one is egg less??(Ofcourse,the title screams it!!!)
As always start by preheating your oven to 350F(180C). Take some oreo cookies and powder them with the help of a rolling pin.
Meanwhile melt some butter and mix it to the powdered oreo resembling wet sand. This time i dumped them into the saucepan. Be careful not to add too much butter or after baking the surface may become rock hard!!
Press it into the spring foam pan with the help of a spoon and bake for 7 mins.
Line the spring foam pan with two layers of foil. This will prevent the batter from leaking out as we shall be baking by using water bath. While the base bakes, take cream cheese,all purpose flour,vanilla extract,lemon juice,sugar,sour cream and mix with the help of a whisk. If your cream cheese has been at room temperature it becomes relatively easier to mix without forming any lumps.
Add some powdered oreo into it.
Mix them well and pour into the pan. Also keep some water fro boiling and pour it into a larger baking tray.
Bake for 40-45 minutes(as this is a mini spring foam,for traditional six inch pan,it should be an hour) or till upon shaking the centre gives a jiggle.Once its done, let it cool inside the oven for another 30 minutes. Leave half the oven door open.
For best results,allow it cool outside for another 2-3 hours and refrigerate over night or atleast 4 hours before serving. And as in my previous post i have mentioned, baking traditionally with the help of water bath prevents the cake from cracking.(Even if it cracks,who cares,its still Cheesecake for heavens sake!!!) Top it up with some oreo goodness....
They tasted exactly the same even without eggs!!
