Most of you will have seen this floating around facebook over the last week or so. The one where they hyperlapse the video and make it look quick and easy to assemble.
Well it is easy I guess, if you take into account the fact that it is made primarily using boxed ready made brownie mix and rolled biscuit dough (most of you know I prefer to make that stuff myself) so bonus points if recipes are not yogurt thing.
Anyway following the instructions and putting it together looks easy peasy on the video.
They do not show you how hard it is to keep the second tin weighted down in the middle of the brownie layer or that it can over flow, I ended up weighing it down with tins 😂😂
Even though I greased it to remove it was a whole heap of fun.
Other than this it is a stunner of a cheesecake and worth all the faffing about. Think I will make my own biscuit and brownie mix next time though 😁😁
2 boxes brownie mix
750g cream cheese room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup caster sugar
3 pkts oreo cookies
1 roll/packet choc chip pre made cookie dough
Place cling wrap in the bottom of your 23cm cheesecake tin. Press the premade biscuit dough onto it right to the edges of the base to form a circle of biscuit dough. Wrap in the cling film, remove from the tin and freeze.
Now line the 23cm cheesecake tin with removable sides with was paper
Preheat the oven to 170°C
Mix the brownie mixes as per box instructions and pour into the prepared cheesecake tin
Spray a 20cm cheesecake tin all around the outside and bottom and press inside the other cheesecake into the brownie mix. Push down so the mix comes up the side of the smaller tin. Weigh it down with tins or oven proof weights to keep it still. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes oven depending.
Remove from the oven, leave for a few minutes then gently manipulate the smaller cheesecake tin out. This is tricky so you may need to use a palette knife to help so you don’t put a hole in the edges.
Line the base of the brownie with oreo cookies leaving no gaps.
Whisk together the cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla extract until creamy and pour on top of the oreos.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Add the second layer of oreo cookies on top, then finally the circle of cookie dough.
Bake for 25 minutes, cool in the tin, slice and serve.
